Dinner & Drinks at Cappadocia & Bar Cappa, Bath

Situated on New Market Street overlooking the water, Cappadocia has only been open for just over a month. The Turkish restaurant has a brilliant menu filled with typical, traditional Turkish dishes.

To begin, we had the mezze for one ๐Ÿฅฃ [£6.95]

This included eight different dishes selected by the chef. Ours was a mix of tabbouleh, hummus, baba ganoush (eggplant dip), tzatziki, saksuka (a kind of eggplant and vegetable ragout), taramasalata (fish roe) and havuc tarator (carrot dip).

It was served with delicious flatbreads and juicy olives and was the perfect starter to share. We tried so many different authentic Turkish dips; things that we probably would never have ordered on their own but ended up being delicious. Our favourites were the hummus and the taramasalata.

Moving onto mains...

Lamb moussaka ๐Ÿ† [£14.45]

This was really tasty. Moussaka is kind of like lasagne but having eggplant layers instead of pasta - layers of minced lamb, aubergine and potatoes in a tomato sauce topped with bรฉchamel sauce. It was really creamy, moreish and the perfect warming dish for these colder months.

Mixed grill ๐Ÿ– [£16.45]

This came with grilled chicken, lamb and pork. All of them were tender, delicious and well-grilled. We liked the fresh touch of salad on the plate as well as the rice, making it a well-priced full main course portion.

We really liked both of the main dishes - they were homemade, authentic and aromatic.

We decided to skip dessert but the menu was varied and looked tasty. It has everything from traditional Baklava to rice pudding, raspberry pavlova and chocolate mousse - a real mix!

We then headed upstairs to their bar, Bar Cappa. It's a cosy, modern room for small groups or couples to have a drink before or after a meal. Serving a variety of cocktails, mocktails, wine, beer and cider, it's the perfect place to relax and unwind. We decided to go for a couple of cocktails.

Espresso Martini (vanilla vodka, kahula, double shot of espresso, sugar to taste)๐Ÿธ [£8]

A classic drink that so many love - a great balance of vodka and espresso flavours with just enough sweetness to counteract the bitterness of the coffee.

Watermelon Martini (blanco tequila, watermelon syrup, fresh lime juice, fresh watermelon) ๐Ÿ‰ [£9]

We had to go for another martini. This is a must-try! It's a fresh, thirst-quenching cocktail. We loved the sea-salt rim on the glass.

Amaretto Sour (amaretto, fresh lemon juice, sugar, egg white, cocktail cherry and a slice of orange) ๐Ÿฅƒ [£8.50]

Served in a tumbler, the Amaretto sour is a classic cocktail that you can't fault. It's the perfect balanced sweet but sour drink.

๐ŸŒŸ Cappadocia's dรฉcor is simple yet elegant, with floral arrangements and a modern touch. There were a mix of couples and large groups, so Cappadocia is able to cater to all. It's great for birthdays or family/friend gatherings. Bar Cappa has a total of three cosy and modern rooms available for customers to use independently from the restaurant. Either before or after a meal, or for private hire which could be a great option for hen and stag dos, Christmas meals etc.

๐ŸŒฟ Lots of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free dishes.

๐Ÿคต๐Ÿป The service was really friendly.

๐Ÿ’ฐ ££ - At Cappadocia there's a three-course lunch menu available Mon-Fri for £8.95 which is great value! Happy Hour at Bar Cappa is 5-8.30pm every day. Two cocktails for £10 and two beers for £6.
