We picked and mixed three courses each from the two tasting menus. Beautiful presentation and attentive friendly service. The rose veal and the crab lasagna were particularly good. The restaurant was down some dark steep outside stairs - but you may be able to go through the hotel. Expensive but very good.

While it's not cheap, the set lunch on Saturday is great value. The food is exceptionally good and beautifully presented. The service was friendly and attentive without being fussy. I will find an excuse to go back and try the tasting menu,

My husband and I had shared some wonderful meals in this restaurant when we lived in Bath 7 years ago. Upon revisiting, we were somewhat underwhelmed with the style of the food. The vegetarian options seemed like the side dishes of the non-vegetarian menu. The non-vegetarian menu was nice, but lacked perfection: the fish was slightly overdone, the meat not... More

I was looking for somewhere new for us to visit so took my wife to Bath for valentines. Having read some reviews I opted for The Olive Tree, they were doing a valentines taster menu for £99 which seemed reasonable for a high standard menu. The staff were efficient and friendly and each course was incredible. Profiteroles with creamed cheese... More

The service and food here is excellent.... I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Bath. The taster menu was not cheap, but it was highly entertaining and tasty. Only caveat is that the liver in the Signature Menu was slightly underdone for my taste. The choices of wine with each course suited us perfectly.

This is an amazing restaurant and fine dining experience. The food concocted by Chef Chris Cleghorn (I asked specifically on the night) produced the best meal my wife and I have had since our last Michelin meal. Truly exceptional fine dining at a very reasonable price for two different tasting menus. In my view 5 stars but three rosettes undervalues... More

My partner and I had the tasting menu on Saturday evening. The food and service were sublime and the only minor negative point is the over attentive nature of the staff. Initially we were the only couple in one section of the restaurant and one of the staff loitered within metres of us initially during our meal. More privacy would... More

A small group of us came to celebrate my niece's 18th. The food was delicious and just surprising enough to entertain us, the staff friendly and knowledgeable, and the atmosphere special enough to suit the occasion but not too stuffy!
