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.

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
