We popped in on a Sunday night and it was very busy. The landlady suggested that we have a drink at the bar until a table came free. She then had a cancellation and we didn't have to wait long. The place is simply a little house converted. There is a bar and a few tables downstairs....very cramped when busy....and... More

Belgium is known for their excellent beers, but what if you're not really a beer drinker and in Bruges? Don't worry - this is your spot wine lovers! While 2 stories, it can't seat but perhaps 35 when packed. We arrived as they had just opened so could just walk in but reservations are definitely recommended otherwise. It's very intimate,...

Great little location, good food and nice wine. Would definitely recommend it for anyone passing by. Had a cheese and a meat platter which were both delicious. The wine came with a bonus tapenade that we weren't expecting. Facilities were clean and service was excellent.

Fantastic wine selection on offer. Live music every Sunday. It was easy listening jazz on our visit which isn't really my thing but still enjoyed it.

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
