“Still a great place to eat after many years on the scene” – this “buzzy” indie bistro, near the Royal Crescent, remains one of the most commented-on destinations in town thanks to its “excellent”, “straightforward” cooking (“from a monthly changing menu of locally sourced seasonal ingredients, mixing modern tastes with old classics”) and “enthusiastic service”.
A “favourite”, family-run (and “slightly cramped”) bistro, near the Royal Crescent, that’s the most commented-on destination in the city this year, on account of its “attentive” staff and “easy, café-style atmosphere”, as well as its “excellent, well-presented modern European cooking”. Top tip – “try to book for upstairs”.
“Enthusiastic and well-informed staff” contribute to the high popularity of this family-owned bistro, near the Royal Crescent. The “reliable” seasonal cooking seldom disappoints, and the setting is “relaxed” (with lunch on the pavement a possibility in summer).
“One of the best places to eat in Bath… which has few enough good places!” – this family-owned bistro, near the Royal Crescent, is a “reliable” spot offering “fresh” and “varied” cooking, so it’s no surprise that it’s often “very busy”; “ground-floor seating is best, but most tables there are for two”.
The Circus Restaurant Diner Reviews
"The standard of food remains good but service seems to have gone downhill over the past year. There seem to have been a few changes to front of house staff and overall the staff are less attentive and inclined to chat amongst themselves rather than keep an eye on the customers. Always well filled so need to book and upstairs tables are much better."
"Perfectly cooked fresh fish and salads major at this deservedly popular bistro."
