Expert review of Casanis

Charming French bistro near Bath’s historic Assembly Rooms.

Casanis (pronounced Cazzaneice) is a charming French bistro run by Jill Couvreur and her chef husband Laurent. I found it by chance when I was taking a shortcut one day as it’s tucked away in the top end of town near the Assembly Rooms.

Food and drink: 

Clean French cuisine, bursting with fresh flavours - Casanis is fine dining without the fuss. Dishes are classics with ingredients like mussels and beef and unsurprisingly there are great wines, cheeses and desserts on the menu.

Recommended dishes: 

Menus change seasonally, but if it’s on there go for the pear and Parma ham salad for a delicious light lunch.

Ambience: 

Tranquil calming green walls, fresh decor and sprigs of lavender on the table give the restaurant a simple elegance that gets buzzier as the evening goes on.

Service: 

Our waiter was French, which I loved, and the service is low-key on quiet lunchtimes, but it’s more formal in the evenings.

Location: 

Tucked away behind the Assembly Rooms up on Saville Row.

Price advice: 

Set lunches are £14 for two-courses, £18 for three and set dinners (served between 6-7pm) are £18 for two-courses and £22 for three.

Tables to book: 

Ask for a table in the back of the restaurant if you're on a date, or in the front part if you're out with friends.
