We ate in La Bastille yesterday evening. Lovely restaurant. Fabulous food. The staff are great - particularly Steven, who was very efficient and charming. We have eaten here several times and will continue to do so. Highly recommended gem.

Sitting in La Bastille brought me back to my time in France. The surroundings and the music were more than complimented by the food. There were three of us and we all agreed that the food was excellent and we can say that about all 3 courses. In fact everything about our experience there was excellent. The owner was good... More

I highly recommend you try this place out. The food is fantastic and the staff are welcoming and friendly. They also do a food and wine night which i am sure myself and my husband will be back for. Especially loved the dessert. Great location with a classic french feel.

Visiting family for a long weekend we decided to have a quiet dinner just the two of us, we had been warned by our family that we had left it too late to get a table in the city centre and they were right.
