Description: The Ava Winebar has undergone a complete refurbishment and has been transformed into a classy, elegant and on trend wine bar. We are ideally situated on the corner of Main Street opposite Bangor bus station and the post office. We are open seven days a week for lunch, tapas, dinner and drinks. The future of The Ava is an exciting one, especially with a complete reboot of the drinks menu, now knows as 'The Drink Bible' with its quirky illustrations and finishing touches. The food menu has also been revamped and expanded upon, proving that even the pickiest of eaters can find something they will enjoy. For those who are looking something a little lighter a new bar menu has been introduced which features tapas and selected wines by the glass. The newly renovated spot is also expecting a new beer garden and a re-branding of the cellar bar.

Set on different levels with different themes. Good wine selection and they do take away wines too, so if you like the wine you have with your meal you can take a bottle home. Worth a try.

“Very tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2012

We were slightly too late for their 2 course meal deal running until 6pm,but still good value for what we had!
We all had different burgers and were all very tasty-had to resist their desserts but all looked very tempting!

“Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2012

It has been a while from I have eaten I'm the Ava, the tapas we had was as usual exceptional as was the service. It was also reassuring to see management as busy on the floor as the waiting staff. Although i noticed for the first this evening that if you don't wish to order from the menu like everyone else you can bring in your own food from the chippy down the street, as the few tables back from us had done this which to say the least we found bizzare....talk about brining sandwiches to a pick nic!
This aside I would recommend the Ava any day of the week for service, quality and value for money.
