lots of vegan choices and great wines. Eat inside and or outdoors. The chef is willing to work with special request and food allergies. Lots of parking. Wine shop in back. Small plates available.

This is my "go-to" shop for wines. They have a huge variety, most of which aren't available in the local grocery stores. They serve some pretty good small plates, too, so it's a nice place to go for a light supper. I especially like the warm brie with rose hip honey and crusty baguette slices.

First of all the wine list is spectacular and varied. Fabulous wines and you can be sure to find something you'll love. Charley is over the top good with wines, and Joyce is an absolute expert in the universe of wines. As for the food, this is one of a kind, small plated portions of over the top good recipes,... More

This is a jewel of a wine bar in small town, old Florida southwest coast. A very nice selection of good to great wines and a good staff of people who can make good recommendations. They also have one of the best small-plate chefs in the state. We tried several and were delighted with every one. If you're anywhere close... More

We stopped by on the way home from the baseball game and wanted a light dinner. We shared the tapas plate for two and it included 2 cheeses, salami, chorizo, Spanish olives, anchovies, caper berry flowers, apple slices, almonds, hummus and a variety of toasted breads to enjoy with the meal. There are many wines available by the glass and... More

We enjoyed a lovely tapas here for 4 of us. The service was very good and the tapas was really good, my only complaint is that some of the tapas dishes only had 3 on them an when there are 4 of you you struggle to share. They are also quite pricey, but very tasty all the same !
