“Sunny and welcoming”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

On our visit we lapped up the late afternoon/early evening sunshine and it was delightful. The wine list is carefully selected and the small plates to share were interesting and delicious. David made helpful suggestions about wine matches and was welcoming and friendly without being OTT. As we were the only guests outside at the time he very helpfully adjusted the music volume for us: a very nice touch. It's small and personal, very enjoyable indeed.

“Warm and friendly service - a highlight”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

What a great spot - well deserving of all the referrals given by other locals. When us 6 ladies turned up on a Saturday night, and this tiny little place had no obvious tables available inside, the wonderful team at Micro set us up in the courtyard with rugs and heaters to keep us warm, and wonderful ambient lighting. We ended up having the courtyard to ourselves for the whole night (probably wise, given that we were pretty keyed up and noisy!). The service was faultless and the advice on food and wine spot on. Really personal, friendly service - nothing was too hard. Had some lovely light nibbles and wines, and the whole evening was excellent value. Big rave!

“Small in size but huge in atmosphere!”
Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

I went with a group of friends, as the inside was full we sat out the back in the courtyard. Small but lovely, as well as a gas heater they had blankets available if anyone was a bit chilly. Lovely atmosphere, we felt like we could of been sitting anywhere in the world! We got a selection of dishes to share which was great as we got to try a bit of everything and everything was very tasty!
They have a great selection of wines & beers. I chose do do the white wine samples - 5 different white wines for $18, this was great as I got to try some lovely Martinborough wines. You could also try red wines, however they were all Pino Noir.
For a small place I thought the atmosphere was great, the staff were very friendly. Will definitely be back!
