“An interesting idea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

You need to reserve a table - email worked well. It was very busy on a Friday evening in February.
Having read the other reviews we ate beforehand but regretted that. The platters looked delicious and we wished we had not eaten as they looked so appetising.
A different and very enjoyable evening with some lovely wines and at reasonable prices.

Makes a big change from the poor quality wines served in English pubs!!

“very nice bar!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

great opportunity to try out different kinds of wines for a reasonable price, nice environment!!
wouldn't consider it as a restaurant though, it's more like a bar where you can have some snacks like cheese, charcuterie and bread.
Staff is nice and helpful, great place to go with friends!

“Great way to do some wine tasting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

I think there are enough reviews that explain this wine bar. You buy a card and top it up with some Euros. Then you can go to the various wine dispensing machines and choose one of three measures and try out lots of different wines. We also had a plate of cold meats, cheese and crusty bread which was nice. A good experience.

“Fascinating place - as long as you like red wine!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

With 8 Bordeaux wines from the left bank of the Garonne, 8 from the right bank, plus 8 other reds and 8 whites, you are not short of choice. They are all available, self service, by the glass, half glass or quarter glass so you can try plenty of different wines and still be able to walk afterwards. With prices from less than 1 euro to 12 euros for a quarter glass you can budget your evening as you wish. A very helpful and knowledgeable barman will tell you all you need to know about each one. Although it is principally a wine bar it does sell delicious tapas-like plates of meats & vegetables. Reservations essential Fridays & weekends. It does get very busy.

“what a great place to taste the local wines”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

This is a fabulous place to spend an evening. It certainly is a buzzing place. When you enter you have a card which you can put on how ever many euros you wish, and there are a large selection of Red and white wines and also wines from around the world. You simply find a wine you wish to try -put your card in and you have 3 options to choose, taster, slightly more than a taster, and a glass of wine. Depending on what wine you choose depends on the price, tasters can be as little as 1.50 euros , a glass from approx 4 euros up to 25 euros! ( that's for the really expensive wines!) To go with this order a cheese plate or charcuterie plate. Reservations are a must as this place gets packed. A definite must for all you wine connoisseurs out there. What you don't use on the card you get back
