We wanted somewhere for a bowl of soup at lunchtime and just happened across this place. We chose their lunchtime offer, which was a bowl of soup ( tomato and pumpkin ) and a choice of sandwich for around 10 euro. The soup was very tasty and the choice of sandwiches was good. I opted for an open Irish smoked... More

We popped in here on Wednesday evening after work without a reservation and were greeted by a very friendly staff member who offered us a choice of tables and didn't make the usual contorted face when we mentioned we didn't have a reservation. Once we were comfortable (It is a very comfortable restaurant) we were informed of the specials which... More

Wonderful selection of wines of the world; very reasonable, nice pours. trendy ambience; Carlos from Argentina was a terrific host and hugely wine knowledgeable. It was a great mid afternoon pause particularly enjoyed the Camembert fondue.

My husband and I dropped in for a pre-dinner glass of wine and bite to eat. My glass of wine was pretty good (Malbec from Argentina) but my husband thought his was just ok (Shiraz from Australia). We also ordered the cheese fondue - delish! Very strong flavor but really good. Super friendly wait staff, but they were a bit... More

We went twice, first for a glass of wine and then next night for a meal with bottle of wine. They do a delicious cheese and meat platter for two people for only 26 euros which was all we needed really. Together with a very nice Sauvignon Touraine at 30 euros this must rank as one of the least expensive... More
