This has the makings of a lovely wine bar, except for one thing: service. Service of any kind, that is. After an abrupt welcome, we were handed menus, listing the (not all that impressive) range of wines available by the glass. And then we were ignored. Spectacularly ignored. But at least they were consistent: they even ignored us as we walked out. For this there could be no excuses, given that there were at most 10 other people in there at the time. Must try harder, Upstairs: people will stay downstairs instead...

Lovely pre-dinner cocktail bar with drinks you wouldn't see on "the usual list".

A bit out of the way though, location wise.

I visited here with my friend to take part in their wine tasting evening and really enjoyed my night :) the girl who took the glass was fab and certainly knew her stuff. We arrived early so had a few wines in the bar which was fab and the service was great. Will certainly be going back to try the food

Went for a quiet meal with my husband and decided to try somewhere different. This is mainly a wine bar with a small separate eating area. The decor is nice and contemporary and its in a great location 5 mins off Union Street.
We both had the shared tapas platter starter and have now chosen our favourite items to try next time. We were not keen on one or two of the items but I think that is more personal taste as they were nicely presented. There is a limited bar menu but you can also choose from the more expensive menu from the restaurant downstairs, Prime Cuts. We both had the filet burger from the bar menu and it was delicious. Our service was a little slower than the manager would have liked to have provided but this was because the downstairs restaurant was extremely busy which impacted on their food. It did not spoil our meal at all. The manager was very apologetic for this and I would guess it would be much quicker on another night. We were there on a Saturday at peak time but in no hurry. They have a superb wine list and you can choose wines by the glass that you would not normally be able to. We will be going back as we enjoyed the food very much. I woudl recommend this restaurant for a nice leisurely meal with partners or friends. Not ideal for children.
