“Auckland's best neighbourhood bar!”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

The Stafford Rd wine bar is the perfect place to share a drink with some very tasty tapas any night of the week. Great selection of brew beers and an excellent wine list. Great atmosphere, just a lovely place to be.

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

Came across this Wine Bar by chance and I really liked it. It is located within a neighbourhood that itself has a lot of history and is interesting. The atmosphere and decor gave the place a great "feel". Very good wine list and like all other comments, the choice of tapa's was very good and all reasonably priced. If you are visiting Auckland and you want a more authentic experience than down-town Auckland, then you wont be disappointed.

“Busy wine bar with really good tapas”
Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

This place has loads of style, a good selection of local wines, some options like jugs of sangria, which is cool because they have a bit of a Spanish aesthetic - and the tapas are really good too - good value and delicious. The atmosphere is great. Hard to find a seat though.

“Great place to meet”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

I was introduced to this lovely place by a client and since our first gathering at the beginning of this year, we meet on a monthly basis practically. This Wine Bar has great atmosphere and character. The food is great and very good value for money. They look after you in a very professional and friendly manner; everybody is so relaxed. Now have something in mind... if you want to have a table, be there early. It fills up ! If you go once... you will go back again and again.

“Good tapas”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Went here on a date. Im definitely picky about my tapas as so many bars/restaurants just use it as an excuse to serve small portions at high prices. The tapas here is good. Some of the best Ive had in Auckland. The tapas staple of patatas bravas was very good, the tuna great, and scallops also great. The service was also very good. Only thing I would change would be the inclusion of more European wines rather than the heavy kiwi focus.
