I have been coming to this winebar for many, many years. It used to be in another location where there was a beatiful garden. Now it is a lot smaller with no garden but it is cosy inside. The wines they serve, are excellent. You have a range of choices by the glass and of course, lots of bottles. The... More

Est is tiny and you could walk past it’s door and not know it was there, but don't walk by, go inside otherwise you will be missing something that is really quite good It’s just around the corner from the fish market. Inside is cosy (very cosy) but they have adapted things to suit. They have an extensive list of... More

Excellent wine.. Tasty menu.. Not cheep but value for money. We enjoyed a very pleasant evening celebrating my sons 21st birthday. The wine list was good and we had a nice surprise when my son was presented with a complimentary dessert.

A great little wine bar with excellent selection of wine, even the odd beer as well. Nothing is too much trouble in the compact historic surroundings, a great place for a snack & a glass or two.

Enjoyed an evening here with family. A very small wine bar serving small tapas style dishes and other larger dishes. Shared a couple of dishes as we weren't looking for a large meal. The ambience was perfect and the staff were very attentive. Fantastic selection of food and wines. Would highly recommend for anyone seeking an alternative to a large... More

We enjoyed a wonderful experience here last night! Sunday is the day to go for live music! Reservations are definitely needed. The place was packed. The band was upstairs with typical steep Belgium stairs. Most tables are for only two. A group of more than six might have an issue with seating, especially upstairs. The food was fresh and flavorful.... More

This charming little place was a real find. The wine bar has a very intimate setting and the service is excellent. Great wine and great food (we had the pasta and garlic bread and was very tasty). Wonderful evening spent at the wine bar.

I LOVED this wine bar! Such a great find. It felt very authentic....whatever that means. Unpretentious, local, tiny little place. The owner was behind the bar and took our order. We ordered four tapas and each one was delicious. There was a sardine brandy one that we weren't sure about but it was incredible. So unusual. Can't recall what kind... More

We booked ahead, just as well it was packed, mostly locals which was nice, we had an excellent bottle of wine and shared a lovely tapas. I would certainly recommend it.

There is not a lot if room, but very cosy small tables and ideal for glasses of wine whilst listening (& singing) to some live music. I didnt eat but I think they do sharing type platters. Would advise you to book ahead to avoid disappointment.
