Description: C&C Wine Bar started out serving primarily South African wines and a limited offering of other beverages. Then Knife and Fork, an eatery, was established to pair our delightful wines with appetizing meals. Today we have a beautiful alfresco restaurant situated in the courtyard of historic Redcliffe Quay. Eating with us is like being a part of history. We are the place where wine lovers can pair amazing wines with tasty coconut shrimp, pastas, burgers, paninis and tempting specials such as Scampi Diabolique. Tables and chairs are tastefully accented in and around the wine bar onto a romantic courtyard. The restaurant is filled to capacity during Thursdays for our Lasagna Night and Saturdays for Karaoke Night. Dine with us or take your sumptuous meal to go, with or without your favourite wine; the choice is yours. We guarantee that you will enjoy and we would be happy to welcome you back again for another visit. Live, Love, Laugh, and Drink Wine Claudine & Company

This spot has to be one of the best deals on the island. Its right in the heart of St Johns and is surrounded by all the old historic brick buildings and has a warm welcoming feel to it. The owners are always around and ready to come chat, advise you on the wines and make sure you are enjoying yourself. The wine list is predominantly South African however some Argentinian varietals have made an appearance. The Thursday night lasagne night is a GREAT experience - only issue is you have to book in advance as it sells out every week. The bar snacks are great - crispy coconut shrimp, wings, smoked salmon, olives, cheese, bruschetta - just the right size to enjoy with your wine.
It comes to life at night as if you try to go earlier in the day parking is a problem - I think they open at 4:30pm - its NOT a place you want to go with kids - I would restrict this to adults only, or groups of girls and on the off nights it can be quite romantic as well. Good spot to go experience some great hospitality and enjoy loads of different wines at a great price by the glass.

We sampled the Australian Icecream independently and in partnership with C&C's wine bar. Both are to be recommended but the real treat is the combo! Try in particular Lasagne night on Thursday, but for a lighter tapas type event enjoy chicken wings, coconut shrimps, bruschetta, chilled South African wines followed up with delicious creamy ice creams. Very friendly service. A super experience. It looks like it might be an idea to book on Thursdays. Cutie and Claudine are excellent hostesses
