Cannot recommend this little gem enough. Small plates for for even the pickiest foodie. The red and white wine flights are incredibly well priced for the quality of wines featured. A great way to try a wide range of vineyards and styles. Fabulous owner/operators.

Just recently visited the micro bar on a blustery Saturday evening and when we went in the tables were all taken but people generously moved around to accommodate us. We ordered a number of the small dishes all of which were excellent . My wife had a tasting selection of wine which I thought was a great idea and I had some beers recommend by the host which I thoroughly enjoyed. Then my wife had a delicious cocktail. Would definitely recommend this unique experience!!

What a great little bar. This is a place that one should check out. While in the area for business and a good break from Auckland we checked out other places in Martinborough and the wider Wairarapa area and this was by far the best!! Superb Wine and Beer Menu, and very tasty small plates menu - have always loved the idea of 'tapas'. Loved the wine flights too with great selections of local wines. Some businesses if not all of the other surrounding bars/restaurants/cafes/vineyards could learn a thing or two if not more from the absolute superb service we got at Micro. David and Tai, such funny, social, personable, relaxed easy going guys. You both certainly know what "excellent service" is about. These two lovely men provided service that was just top class. We felt so welcomed and at home as soon as we stepped in until we left. We had a wonderful time in the Wairarapa and to visit Micro was a great way to end. David and Tai keep doing what you guys do - while there should be good wine and food, it is the service overall that matters. Thank you guys and hope to see you soon.

Nice place with small bites. Was perfect for us, we had a larger lunch and didn't want another big meal. I had the sample of 5 Pinots as well as several of the small bites. Pickle sped veg and calamari were very good. Nice atmosphere, friendly service.

Great little upmarket place with just a few seats and a small bar to prop up next to. They have an excellent range of wines and beers including a gluten free beer option; which is highly unusual offering. It's not a cheap option but this brings in a decent clientele and as it's sitting in close quarters perhaps that's not a bar thing!

My husband had the GF beer and announced it to be excellent

Friendly owner-staff and decent nibbles from the tiny kitchen which is outside patio doors along with the miniature courtyard for outdoor and private dining.

They also have a a few seats outside at the front for when the weather is fine

Friendly vibe and decent music which is background and does not get in the way of conversation - magic!
