Scallops at Casanis - Bath

We had lunch in the garden at Casinis yesterday. Started with the scallops (as shown above), followed by omlettes with fries, and a couple of indulgent deserts washed down with a Muscadet. Everything was as good as you would expect from this consistently excellent restaurant.

Three courses including wine (£21) and coffee – £65.

Moon and Sixpence Bar

After deciding not to wait 40 minutes to get into Jamie Oliver’s Italian, we decided to give the Moon and Sixpence a try. After its recent refurbmishment the Moon is now divided into a downstairs restaurant (much bigger than it was) and an upstairs bar that serves food. We went for the latter, and were not disappointed. The food, burger and fries, frittata and mushroom risotto was absolutely lovely. The service was polite and friendly without being over-attentive, and the bar itself was great, comfortable warm, and lots of glass giving a nice view of the activity in Milsom Place. There was also a terrace for al fresco enjoyment when the weather improves.

Cost was less than £50 with drinks for lunch for three.

On the whole a very nice experience, which we are looking to repeat soon, though maybe we’ll try the main restaurant with its slightly different and more expansive menu.…

Jamie Oliver’s Bath Restaurant nine months on

The general opinion amongst the locals is that Jamie Oliver’s Bath Restaurant is still a good thing. Standards are not quite as high as when it first opened, however things are still more than good enough. We visited a few days ago to check it out and on the whole we were happy. The breads were not quite as stunning as they were back in October, but the salads and pastas were fine – well up to standard. The staff were enthusiastic and efficient, and we also discovered that there is a small roof terrace upstairs.

Note that the popularity of the restaurant and the fact that small parties of less than 8 people cannot book means that queues continue to be an issue. Unusually when we visited we headed straight in, but that was just after noon on a Sunday.…
