“Value and high quality food with excellent service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

A very good lunch made our day in Bath one to remember. We chose the fresh fish of the day with vegetables and thick cut chips. The food was of a high quality and cooked to our taste. The service was friendly and efficient.
Three of us dined well with wine/beer for a total of 75 pounds which we thought was reasonable.
We will return the next time we are in Bath.

“Lovely lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

This small bistro restaurant is tucked away between the Royal Crescent and the Circus. The menu was small but had a fantastic selection of dishes for appetites and tastes. I enjoyed the chicken dish while my wife had one of the two fish specials, a beautiful plate of John Dory with a crab sauce. Friendly staff, excellent food and service.

“Nice surroundings, so-so food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

I have eaten at this restaurant three times now, at different times of the year. And although the decor is quite elegant and the staff are lovely (if not exactly efficient), the food is generally well-presented but the flavors uninspired. Perhaps this suits the octogenerians of Bath or timid visitors, but for real foodies, better value is to be had around the corner at Eleven.

“good food and service”

Excellent meal in nice ambiance. Nearest Bath gets to haute cuisine, but at reasonable price: £68 for two having two courses each, one pudding, and one glass of wine.
