A beautiful bijou wine bar very popular with locals with a wonderfully friendly atmosphere. Enjoy a good quality wine at a reasonable price, but book a table if you go after 7:30pm, it's a busy place. The food is excellent with live music and jazz most evenings, but check ahead. The hosts made us very welcome and the service is... More

Lovely little bar to visit after dinner. We sat upstairs next to the window and enjoyed some delicious wine in a lovely atmosphere. Would recommend this for evening drinks as a couple, very romantic!

We stopped here after dinner, and this place was packed, but the workers made space for us. It's very small, but there are two floors, and live music. It was a perfect place to wind down with a glass of wine and just listen to music. Great atmosphere. We did not try the food, but it looked great on other... More

Do not miss this wine bar on a Sunday! The family truly cares about what they do here; wine, music and solid, simple food. We loved the folk & blues played by the owner and his colleague. The wines on offer by the glass were unique and well-priced. The pasta and salad were solid; the service convivial. We would be... More

Visited here on a Sunday evening for the live music. Staff were very friendly and welcoming, and went out of their way to get us a table after a mix-up on our reservation. The music was excellent, the atmosphere intimate and relaxed, and the food tasty. It's very small so reserving is essential.

A great place to relax after a long day walking in Bruges. It's a very cool, two story wine bar that serves amazing food although you'd never know it as they seem to downplay it. They are more focused on being a wine bar but I had one of the better pasta dishes I have every had. It's two stories... More

We read about the Winebar, in the Lonley Planet, travel book of Bruges. it recommended it, as a lively place on a Sunday evening, with live Jazz/ blues music. We were due to arrive in Bruges, early evening on a Sunday, so thought it would be a great idea to have somewhere booked for dinner, as its always difficult to... More
