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

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 !

Our first visit was for Sunday brunch, mimosas followed by two variations on eggs Benedict, one the menu standby, the other with smoked salmon. My wife and I love eggs Benedict, she in particular orders them all over the country, we agreed that these preparations are unsurpassed. The following week we returned for a tapas lunch, the plate for two,... More

Nice break from the local establishments. Finally a place with some culture and class in a ....well, let's just say an area that hosts other national flags besides the great USA. .. Sorry, but it is what it is. Great wine, and cheese plates; on par with similar establishments in Napa, and Chicago.
