Tapas like dishes to share.Reasonably priced and the food was good but not great. Very friendly staff and a pleasant environment to share some dishes and relax with a nice glass of wine.

went with 5 others, ordered a dozen small plates, lots of beer, and everything we tried was delicious; especially the baked feta and the chicken meatballs...wine is a bit expensive, $10-12 per glass so the group stayed with beer, instead. Enjoyed ourselves..we will return...great waiter, James...very attentive, welcoming, you will enjoy. Salud!

What a great spot! I love places like this – really nice knowledgeable people serving unique delicious food and interesting wines by the glass. In talking to the GM he told me that he operates under the philosophy that he will only serve wines that are unavailable within a 10 mile radius. The result is a list that is eclectic,... More

Fairly trendy yet charming wine bar with a great selection of food. Cocktails were good (and strong), atmosphere was lively and great service. Would come again!

We stopped by here for a drink on the way to dinner one night. It's billed as a wine bar, but there is plenty of beer & cocktails as well. Outside there is a fire pit on the patio. Inside is cozy with a bar & tables. Service was prompt. Drinks were good. We will go back to try the... More

Very nice tapas restaurant right in the heart of the Old Port district. My wife and I sat outside right by the fire pit, which was a very nice setting for a romantic dinner. The food here was really delicious- we ordered the beef carpaccio, a Caesar salad, and their chicken meatballs- good portions of each, too.

On our first night stay at the Inn at English Meadows, we decided to have dinner at the Old Vines Wine Bar. The Bar-Restaurant is just a 5 minutes walk from the Inn and what a find.
