We visited mid week and enjoyed a very good meal. I had the Quail and my wife the Venison. Both were very tasty and very well cooked. This is quite an expensive meal so the standard needs to be high and it is.

We went to Bath for a weekend and with all the choices you have, it was hard but we settled on Rapheal's. We weren't disappointed, the service was top notch and we were blown away by the quality of the food. I would definitely add this restaurant to your list of musts when visiting Bath.

After an absence of 5 years, due to moving from the area, we visited for lunch on Saturday whilst visiting the Christmas market with family. And as usual Raphael did not disappoint. The staff were friendly, attentive and efficient. The food was absolutely delicious. I chose the Pumpkin risotto for my starter and the braised beef cheek for my main... More

Lovely to have this restaurant up and running again after being out so long due to the fire. Always a lovely place to come for a special treat, with an interesting menu. The food is always good quality and the staff friendly. Fun having the wine decanted. Very popular so pays to book ahead.

A visit on a Saturday night after the pre theatre sitting. Starter of boudin blanc was absolutely fantastic. The best starter I have eaten for a long while. Fillet steak for main course cooked to perfection. Good reasonably priced wine and a great relaxed atmosphere. Enjoyable for couples, families and groups.

Pre-theatre dinner on Saturday evening (pre-booked) and they were turning people away as we were eating. Not surprising that it's popular, though, as the food is good and hearty, pretty good value and served quickly by very friendly and helpful staff. Only one vegetarian main course option, so worth mentioning any dietary requirements when booking. Certainly worth a visit.

Warning: This excellent restaurant should not be visited ONLY for pre-theatre dinner...though we did just that for our first visit, having had the place recommended by a 'Bathonian' foodie friend. As the Theatre Royal, is easy lurching distance from Raphael we thought it would be rude not to try it out. The restaurant is wonderfully 'Paris' in style, lighting just... More

Raphael's do a Pre Theatre menu from 5.30 in the evenings. It is reasonably priced and the food is always excellent. We have dined here several times over the last few years and it has always been superb. You need to book a table as it is always full. The atmosphere is good and the staff very helpful. You often...
