If you like like nice wine, excellent charcuterie and quality cheeses in a relaxing and spacious atmosphere (a renovated Polish Oratory) this is highly recommended. Relaxed service and a quiet piece of heaven off the busy beaten track off the west end of Princes St....Seek out and you will be rewarded. Booking a table advised !More

So disappointed!! Regular patrons. Waitress spilled red wine over me. Very apologetic at the time. No money off the bill. I’m the one doing the washing and ironing tomorrow! Where’s the management? Lazy….complacent…

After two years of doing nothing locked up, we returned to Le Di Vin with much joy. As we walked in there was the usual nice hustle and bustle of the bar while we found our table. As we looked through the new look menu...(obviously due to covid) all the old favorites were there with wine and food with a lot of new things to try also! A waiter very quickly came over and chatted with us and took our order which arrived swiftly followed by the food a few minutes later (Two of there tapas sized portions) The food was lovely and I could of quite happily had more (it is more of a taster size). The wine was lovely and we enjoyed nibbling and drinking away. The bar is lovely we hide away and felt very romantic in our wee corner, with candles being put out as the evening started. Very worthwhile visit and definitely will be back again!More

Visited this restaurant twice during our 4-night stay in Edinburgh. I think that says enough given the selection available across the city for eating out! Very relaxed place, with first class staff service and great wine/food. Although I would price the food and "mid-range", it...was not expensive and I would happily go again, given the quality of the food vs price.More

Without a doubt one of the best wine bars I have been to. I have visited Le Di-Vin a few times in the last year and always go back. From the outside it is a picture perfect Tudor style house but inside you can still...see the remains of its former life as a polish church, it certainly is full of character and history. Le Di-Vin boasts a wide range of delicious wines, by bottle or by glass, and tapas style plates, try the cheese you will not be disappointed. The mezzanine level is a cosy hideaway where you can enjoy what Le Di-Vin has to offer. Each time I visit Le D-Vin, I always have a great time. Service is prompt and the staff are friendly, chatty, professional and know their wines. They also go above and beyond to make sure you receive great service. I would like to take the time to mention Simone who certainly made our visit(s) memorable.More

Returned here after a long gap, this time with husband. On entering the wide welcoming open door, we stalled, to check protocol. Being ignored by the three bar staff, we strolled the considerable length of the bar, assuming things had resumed to the old ways.......sit yourself down. This we did opting for the attractive mezzanine floor - where I've always chosen. After a while waiting with no service, husband went to bar to place order where he was asked, somewhat abruptly, "How did you get up there". We walked, he answered a little confused. "You're not allowed up there" (Note. there was a barrier cord which was not in use at the stairway entrance). She agreed however to bring our drinks up. With the mood now soured we waited. It was very quiet and we had a birds eye view of the empty bar. Eventually someone appeared with water asking, what would you like to drink?! We explained, a little exasperated that we'd put our order in some time ago, which the girl appologised for. After a few more glowers up in our direction some 10/15 mins after arriving our drinks were brought. I asked what the delay was. "you want an explanation", snapped our server. Yes that would be good I said. Said server went on to say she was following orders from manager to go and wash some small wine glasses. (we counted at least three bar staff). Having delivered her retort, she proceeded to walk off. I said, after requesting she return, so as I was neither having to shout nor to contort myself to communicate, that I was not comfotable with the overall attitude we were being subjected to, to which she said she was not happy we had 'just walked in and helped ourselves to a table we didn't know was booked or not" So it seemed, we were being punished for the bar staff's inability to spot two adults arriving, walking the length of the bar and finding a table of their choice. We had been going try two or three wines then a nibble. Needless to say this did not happen. We settled our bill with the rude server and the glowerer but were disappointed the manager didn't have the courtesy, maturity (?) to repair this rude mistake. With countless options in Edinburgh for quality wines in charming settings we fortunately do not have to be subject to this dreadful hospitalityMore

Visited this venue with my partner one afternoon for a couple of glasses of wine and a cheese/charcuterie board. Good food, great wine and the service was generally good. Recommended.
