Creative, original, local and independent
Bistro La Barrique is the realisation of Michel's ambition to create an authentic French
restaurant in Bath, providing the city with
a creative, independent alternative to
the formulaic and ubiquitous chain establishments.
La Barrique's customers enjoy the experience
of an accomplished and talented chef
expressing his own unique vision, and
sharing a passion for the very best in food
With its emphasis on a
relaxed, warm and welcoming ambience,
combined with diversity, quality and great
service at an affordable price, La Barrique
has become a favourite destination for those
diners who are seeking something
distinctive, different and original.
As Michel says "I’d been involved in food
and wine tasting evenings where we were
combining a number of smaller, succulent dishes with
complementary wines. This fun and
interesting experience became the inspiration for the
‘Petit plats’ approach that is now the
cornerstone of our style at La Barrique".
