“Almost worth the trip to SCDLC by itself!”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

If only my home town of Antigua Guatemala had a little wine bar like this! There's an interesting and varied selection of mainly Spanish and South American wines served by the glass and by the bottle plus the right sort of snack food to accompany. The cheapest glass of red is a very reasonable 18 pesos (Spanish tempranillo) and every order comes with a little botanita or clay bowl of popcorn. It's a good idea to get in early, say 7pm, because it fills up very quickly. Very friendly service: a fine institution.

“Great wine and atmosphere”
Reviewed August 9, 2012 via mobile

La Vina de Bacco was a welcome spot to hang out with a glass of wine (or two) after a long day of language classes and walking around the city. The wine selection is great and the complimentary popcorn and bruschetta were a welcome addition.

“Good Vibes”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

Staff are friendly.. House red is joy and came with a yummy bruschetta every round. Great atmosphere and good location on the main strip.

“Not so much tapas for a tapas bar”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

Although the designation 'tapas bar' may be a little misleading this was a really fun place on the main pedestrian street Real de Guadeloupe - busy and with a nice atmosphere. The staff were nice and you get a sense that they know half their customers. The food and wine were fine and reasonable value for money compared with other places. But, above all, it was good to find somewhere with a bit of buzz in June, when most of the restaurants seemed empty.

“Great place for a drink, substandard food”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

This is an atmospheric little bar with a great selection of wines that are very well priced, but the food is really pretty poor so as a restaurant I don't rate it very highly; it's strange to see it rated as one of the best restaurants in San Cristobal when there are so many great dining options. You should definitely visit for drinks, there is good music playing with a very intimate friendly vibe but I would recommend eating elsewhere.
