This place is in the best location--lots of action and people watching. Huge wine list and for every drink you order, you get a free tapas. Very small place and usually full but it's a great place to stop.

We started with a nutritious salad. Then came an ample plate of a variety of cheeses, Serrano ham and olives. Food was served quickly and the wait staff was courteous and helpful. The atmosphere is hip and happening. We're already looking forward to our next visit.

So much fun I had here during my stay in San Cristobal de las Casas! The wine is fresh, good and cheap. The street artists are always stopping by to entertain. The bartenders Mimi, Ximena and Daniel rock! Can't wait to return!

This is the most happening bar on Real de Guadalupe, the main strip in San Cris. I came once with a backpacking buddy. They have a great wine list and lots of beers and liquors including Mezcal to choose from. They also have a lot outdoor seating flowing right into the street making it great for people watching. People typically... More

We spent three days and nights in San Cristobal de las Casas, and each night we spent some time at La Vina de Bacco. The server was terrific. She spoke English, which helps, and she was very friendly and helpful. We never had a full meal, choosing instead to have tapas with our drinks, which included wines and mezcal. Seating... More

If you like drinking reasonably priced Malbec & getting a tapa dish with every single glass then this is for you! Good service too!

Is a nice place, very cheap, and everytime you order something to drink they will give you a "tapa" (veggie or with meat). Sometimes "Flaco" a local musician play there and is great. Yo may be get drunk with 90 pesos jaja. Enjoy.

We were looking for a drink and snack and thus was perfect, reminiscent of old Spain. Great wine selection, free popcorn and two tapas and a fair selection of others. Great prices. These whiny travelers who complain of struggling children selling items should not travel to Mexico or most of the world or create a nonprofit to eliminate poverty. Now,... More

Well, it is not really a restaurant but it is a very popular wine bar with the perfect location. Can't really argue with success. Only real drawback for me is the sometimes endless parade of people trying to sell you things, asking for money and some of the street "musicians" are just making drunken noise while you try to have...
