Whether it’s tapas or meze, sharing food is a super social event. The tactile experience heightens enjoyment and the range of small dishes lets you explore flavours. Sharing an array of light bites is one of our favourite ways to dine out, and Bath has plenty of places to choose from.
For classic tapas we like Olé, a tiny restaurant in the heart of the city. The tapas menu is traditional with a few modern bites, and the bijoux setup instils an authentic vibe. They also have a good selection of sherry if you are out for the full Spanish experience.
La Perla is perfect for cold rainy days when you need the comfort factor, their warm lighting and spacious vaults provide a welcoming cosy environment. The tapas menu is modern, but includes the simple classics, and their restaurant has an open kitchen enabling you to see the action.
Moving away from pure tapas, The Tasting Room serve a small plates menu of Mediterranean influenced dishes. The bistro character and excellent wine pairings create a continental vibe. The dishes include a wonderful variety of produce, helping you sample new ingredients which you can often buy in the shop downstairs!
Opa serves traditional Greek meze inside a classic Bath vault with views into Parade Gardens and over the river. The popular bar oozes energy on weekend nights, making it a great place for group meals and impromptu get-togethers.
