“Love love love this restaurant!!”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

I first took my husband here as a surprise for his 40th birthday, as I had my work Christmas meal here and really enjoyed it, he is now 53, I can honestly say we have never had a bad meal, or witnessed anyone else complaining, we travel 70 mile round trip to eat here on mainly on Saturday
Lovely friendly staff, great choice of food, everything freshly prepared, so If there is an ingredient not to your taste, the chef will sort that, we usually do a lunchtime, but booking for evening is advisable
A set 2 course lunch is great value plus they have fab a la carte menu too, just amazing food, I hate chain restaurants as the meals always taste pre prepared and lack imagination,
One reviewer suggested it needed tablecloths, um no a tad dated and way to stuffy, it would ruin the relaxed bistro feel. Also the menu limited, prices leaning on expensive, comment below, I totally disagree. I believe you get what you pay for and for the quality it's exceptional valve. Great wine selection too!
If you are in Bath for a shopping trip pop in for lunch or after 7.30 once the pre theatre crowds have left, you'll love it !

“Good atmosphere”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Near the theatre so convenient. Food was good, not very french. Atmosphere good. Menu limited. Price is leaning on the expensive. May go back again, but plenty of other restaurants in Bath with much better food, price and menu selection.

“A good find”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

We went for a few days in Bath and were wandering around looking for somewhere to eat in the evening when we spotted Raphael near the theatre. We were later than the theatre crowd and the menu looked good and the restaurant inviting so we went in. We had a lovely meal in very relaxing surroundings and the service was excellent. I would definitely go again when we are next in Bath.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Took friends here on Saturday for evening meal, so was hoping it was going to be as good as last time we ate here around a year ago. Did not disappoint. The service was great, lovely atmosphere. The food was amazing. Really tasty, lovely presentation.
