Small but Perfect

There is not a lot if room, but very cosy small tables and ideal for glasses of wine whilst listening (& singing) to some live music. I didnt eat but I think they do sharing type platters. Would advise you to book ahead to avoid disappointment.

We booked a table in advance here after walking past and because if it's small interior it's really recommended you book as it is very popular. Service was extremely friendly with smiles all round all of the time. There was an excellent choice of wine, suitable for lots of different budgets, and the food was excellent - we chose the...

In the nice small wine bar: "Est" there was life music, good atmosfeer, very good port and red/ white wine and nice people. The owner and his wife were very friendly.

We stumbled across this when looking for somewhere to go for a late afternoon drink and we were so happy we did. We actually came back later that evening because we liked it so much! We sat downstairs both times but there is an upstairs sitting area too (where the bathroom is). They didn't appear to have an exhuastive wine... More

This tiny place could easily be overlooked, no bigger than our living room downstairs but we had the best night of our weekend there. Live jazz and blues and perfect tapas, raclette and huge choice of wine and cheeses while you listen. Best meal and most reasonably priced, and the owner is a lovely lady who makes you feel as...

Just having a voucher from our B&B led us here. We did not regret at all. Good choice of wine, competence in advice and nice sides (tapas) to go with it - we could have spent the entire evening there if we had not planned to only have a starter here! To be recommended for an encore.

Found this thanks to our Lonely Planet guide and I'm pleased to say this was well worth putting in there. A great use of a small space. Excellent, helpful, friendly service. Lovely, well done, simple food and great wine..... Plus, very clean, nice smelling toilets.

Came here for dinner on a Sunday after reading the reviews, and we were really impressed. Great food, delicious wine and a superb live band right in front of us. The atmosphere was just fantastic. Good to book in advance as it's quite small and clearly very popular.

Brugge (and Belgium generally) is famous about chocolates, lace and of course about the beer production. so, if you wish to drink wine for a change, this small bar will offer you a great variety of wines (from many diferent countries) and a lovely atmosphere. the people are nice and the prices are good. nothing to complain about then!....

My friend recommended this place and so I visited with another friend that was in town to check it out. Had a nice evening chatting and enjoying the wine! Would definitely go back, they do have some live music on a Sunday(?). They are only open Fri/Sat/Sun/Mon (over Winter at least). Nice service too.
