“Some nice wines and cocktails ”
Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

As noted, this place has some nice wines from 500 to 1800 yen per glass. They have a bar and tables. Smoking at the bar. Wines are mostly from Europe and are there is a wide selection. They also have a full bar and make cocktails. Dinner menu has pasta, pizza, and other Italian fare. I had some pizza which was just ok. Some vegetarian options. Daily specials.

“A glass of wine...”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

Went in for a glass of wine and had a number of glasses of wine. Interesting small space set up very openly for lively conversation among guest. The amount of wine per glass was about 100ml which was a little small for the price but and good and interesting selection. Had a few bites and they were tasty and again, small portions. Great to start off the night.

“Always pleasant”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

I would recomend this place for a late hour glass of wine, as it is open until 2 a.m.
Prices are not too expensive. Wines are not excellent, but OK and the foods (cheese, olives, prosciutto, etc.) that go with the wines, are also fine.
There are no proper "tables & chairs", but only high-stools and bar tables, whose size is reduced to the minimum. Sometimes, you can sit outside, which is nice, as the small streets around the place are quite lively. At the first floor you have both smokers and non-smokers.
If you are planning a long night, I'd recommend other nearby places for dinner, afterwards at the "il Bacaro" (really excellent wines!) until 11 and then move to this place.

“Very nice wine bar in the heart of Shinjuku”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

Good variety of wine and food.
Better to book in advance as it is usually quite crowded.
1F is for smokers, 2F for non-smokers.
Can be a bit noisy

“Such a brilliant place”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

The Marugo Grande restaurant (and bar) is a fresh and welcoming “alternative” while being in Tokyo and especially in the Shinjuku area. Not only do they offer decent meals (small but priced thereafter) they also have a rather decent collection of French and Italian wines, something which comes across as a “wine-heaven” while visiting far east.

The staff always comes across as very helpful and friendly, underlying this being a place worth visiting.
