My friends and I shared a delicious bottle of Bordeaux and shared the warm goat cheese salad, olive tapenade, and the classic tapas plate. Everything was fantastic. I highly recommend.

My wife and I visited this evening on recommendation from some locals we met earlier today. As soon as we walked in we were told that a table for four people had been reserved for four children playing outside who we didn't see sit at the table. We then sat upstairs and eventually a disinterested waitress took our order for... More

We have been to brugge for the past 10 years and have never been treated so rudely. We were told we couldn't sit at a downstairs table as it was reserved for 4 children who were playing outside , it's a wine bar ?? Went upstairs and waited 20 minutes for a waitress who then served everyone around us including... More

Wherever you go it's great to be able to support live music in whatever shape or form combined with some good food and great wine....that's always a nice combination. If you can get a table here for live music evening then do try and come along as the service, food and music make for a great evening. It self promotes... More

We were there on a Sunday evening when the owner put on a concert he was very good. The food was Tapas type and not to my husbands liking but the rest of us enjoyed the food very much. It is only a very small place and very compact. Try not to get a seat upstairs by the toilet door... More

We came here last year after reading a TripAdvisor review, however it was so busy we couldn't get a table so this year we booked ahead. Sunday nights here are no relaxing with fantastic live music and fabulous wine choices. We also ate here this time, the menu is limited but everything that is served is delicious. The woman who...

This is wine bar is a cracking little place in the just off the canal. It's small and cosy and eclectic. Great range of drinks. Have not tried the food, but other peoples looked good. The owners/staff are really friendly and chatty. It's a really good place to spend an evening, especially after-dinner drinks. Watch the stairs - they are... More

As several people have commented the wine bar is tiny but has a great atmosphere. We were there when live music was playing, this really added to the ambiance. Limited tapas menu, but all was fresh and tasty and terrific choice of wines, so all in all a good time was had by all. Would suggest you book ahead to... More

We popped in on a Sunday night and it was very busy. The landlady suggested that we have a drink at the bar until a table came free. She then had a cancellation and we didn't have to wait long. The place is simply a little house converted. There is a bar and a few tables downstairs....very cramped when busy....and... More
