“Great little bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

We walked past this place several times before actually noticing it! It's a tiny little bar on 2 floors but it's well worth a visit - right in the old centre. Great selection of wines by the glass, lovely atmostphere. They do tapas too - didn't order any so can't comment but the people at the next table had them and they looked good. Would recommend.

We went here for pre-dinner drinks and snacks and it was really nice. Friendly staff, good wine and small, but cosy

“Gem of a wine bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

Tucked away behind the fish market, this is a great place to stop for a reviving glass or two. The menu of wines by the glass changes daily and the knowledgeable owners are more than happy to talk through the selections and advise based on personal preferences. The building itself has a wonderful, warm atmosphere although it is small and so either book or get their early!

“Brilliant little bar - be sure to book!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

This place is perfect - just what a wine bar should be! Cosy decor, simple food (cheese, charcuterie, etc.) and a list of wines which is not overwhelming and also reasonably priced. Went on Sunday night when they have live music which made for a great atmosphere. We found the staff pleasant, friendly and very smiley, despite the place being packed out.
