This has been #1 on TA in the past but has since slipped because it is under the category of restaurants. Please understand that it is a wine bar, not a restaurant. If you eat lite, you can probably just eat here and be fine, if you like a bigger meal, eat here as a app or come after your meal to enjoy some wine.

As others have said, that owner is great, he hand picks the wines and they change often. I thought the value was pretty good, especially if you consider that you are in the heart of Bordeaux. You can choose between 3 sizes, tasting, half glass (2 oz.), and full glass (4oz). Be careful, it is easy to go through a lot of tastings! Also, some of the wines are very expensive. My friend wanted more than one glass and bought two 22E glasses, that is 44E for two glasses! At least it was a very good wine.

The thing I enjoyed the most about this place is that you can sample any type and price of wine and there are a lot of them.

I highly recommend reservations and if you eat light or just want something to nibble on while enjoying wine, try the smoked salmon and the meat and cheese tray.

The perfect introduction to wine tasting in Bordeaux. Unpretentious, helpful, well-organized. Definitely try the foie-gras. Definitely reserve a table. They have a great selections of wines at different price points and a relaxed atmosphere. I had four 1/2 glasses and the Dane had three, including one full glass, foie gras and a cheese platter for 37 Euros.

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!!

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!

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.
