Visted Raphael on Saturday for my girlfriends 21st and it was an exceptional evening. The food was amazing and the service was very good. Highly recommend to anyone visiting bath - book online also as it's very simple to do.

I think we were second through the door at 5.30 but quite quickly the restaurant filled up. Not obvious on the pre theatre menu you can also order breads and olives to start. The service was spot on and then the starters arrived. Just delightful....More
