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.
