Called in earlier to find out the best time to call by to get info about the wines and took this opportunity to take photos of the building while it was empty. We returned between 5 and 6 on the Friday which was great timing....More

We stumbled across this place and compared to other bars, found this one wasn’t overpriced. We had the sample platter which was tasty and a 3 glass of wine (options recommended by the waiter) for 20 euro. Was lovely to sit outside. Would go back.

We had not planned on visiting but as the building is on the UNESCO heritage trail and we were passing around lunchtime, we popped in. The interior is really cool and modern, a contrast to the style and unusual shape of the building. There’s a...More

This place was just what we expected it to be based on the reviews- a nice selection of wines, a few for each category (white, sweet white, rose, red) prices between 2-8 EUR per glass, but most were around the 3- 3.5 mark. You could...More
