Came here for my wife's birthday. Lovely setting and great service but the food was even better. Snapper in particular was amazing, as were the prawns. Very enjoyable and very reasonable for the quality.

This was our second choice of restaurant during our weekend break in Bath, but it certainly did not disappoint! The whole ambiance of the restaurant was very nice and romantic. Lit just enough to see everything but still felt romantic. After checking the portion sizes we opted for 3 and chose the pan fried goats cheese served with tomato marmalade... More

Not an easy place to contact. It took several attempts to order paella for the following day. The ambiance is cosy, menu varied and the staff helpful. However the food seemed to be a little bland, lacking the spice and liveliness we encountered in Seville (the home of tapas) last November.

Just go here. Seriously. Cool ambiance. Delicious sangria. And the goat cheese. Just go for the goat cheese. We dream of eating the goat cheese. Don't miss La Perla!

Me and my boyfriend visited here on a weekday evening and loved it. The setting was beautiful and had a real romantic feel to it. Service was very quick and all staff we spoke to were very friendly and attentive and helped out with recommendations off the menu. We had 6 dishes between the two of us which I think... More

We always visit here when we stay in Bath. Have even been known to detour from elsewhere on our way home! Great tapas and sangria, the best Patatas Bravas we have found outside Spain.

Unusual tapas restaurant in that the menu doesn't seem designed for sharing. It seems to be trying to offer a twist on traditional tapas dishes but in doing so overcomplicates them and the results aren't really up to a high enough standard. The interior is very nice however and has an cosy and intimate atmosphere.

Good selection of tapas. Ordered the calamari -- excellent, but comes with a heavy dose of a mayo cream -- too much. ordered the prawns -- excellent. then ordered the mini sausage burgers -- too rich, made me ill. the garlic prawn stew is to die for -- what a great dish. ordered the scallops -- excellent, but again, too...

We popped in for a late lunch and were offered one of the very few open tables. Delicious tapas and nice ambiance. Great lunch whilst in Bath!

A lovely, cosy basement venue (no signal for those attached to their phones) and the service was efficient, polite and friendly. We had a variety of dishes (too many!) and the patatas bravas were among the best we've ever. And it was all amazingly good value. An excellent choice.

Thank Laura H
