Make a detour to visit this charming little wine bar. The food choice is limited but what there is can be heartily recommended. The wine list is exceptional. I keep coming back here.

We organised drinks here for a friend's birthday and wanted to order 2 platters between 5. The waiter insisted that we should order one large platter and a smaller one to share which we did. They were both meant to be a mix of cold cuts and fine cheeses. One large platter appeared piled high with lettuce. It consisted of... More

Booked a table one week prior to the date. Went there on Time and told the person that I had a reservation. His answer was simple...they had forgotten to list our reservation down...I asked him weather they had a table available, yet he told me that the place was fully booked ( with half of it empty at that time...

Perfect little wine bar, great cheese and meat platters and a good selection of wine. Good service and very accommodating, 8 of us turned up late but nothing was to much trouble.

Great range of wines and the food is nice too. In summer one can even stay out in an alley beside the church.

We went there on a Saturday night and we asked for a table upstairs as downstairs is very small and will be crowed with people standing near the bar. Upstairs was quite and relax we enjoyed it. Service was fast, and waiters were helpful although one of the waiter kept asking if we want a coffee for more than once.... More

This is a super little wine bar which also serves delicious simple food (and lots of it!). The service is very friendly and the night we went it wasn't busy but being so small I can see why people are recommending booking first. It's a lovely old building -atmospheric and charming! If you are staying at the Corinthia it's only... More
