Stopped in for a drink, drawn by the happy lights, warm atmosphere and sense of humour and style in the chalk written notes inside and out. We wished we had been able to stay to eat, as the menu looked very good, and the staff were friendly, interesting, and knew their menu and drinks list. We had an enchanting tonic italiano and savoured several different wines on recommendation. The highlight for one of us was the espresso martini, the first we've ever had with sherry (fino? manzanilla? the waiter wasn't sure but certainly knew everything else we asked) and exceptional. We left, regretfully, into the cold, just as the talent started playing live blues guitar in the corner, which was a genuine drawcard. We noted that everyone was welcome, right down to a couple of big eyed very well behaved little ones, watching the music silently from the restaurant end. We will be back to spend much more time chilling in this excellent and iconic wine bar when we return. Table service in the bar (during the quieter part of the evening) was a real plus, and enabled the staff to highlight the variety of tastes and make recommendations. Prices were very appropriate to the level of service and quality of product (in this case drinks).

Just had the best pre-dinner experience ever. The guy behind the bar was just awesome to watch - entertaining and incredibly efficient. Had single sangria and mulled wine - both superb. Recommend it for sure. Great atmosphere. Keep it up guys

It was a cold evening in June. We arrived to a lovely log fire and an interesting (and slightly confusing if you are just tired and hungry) display of blackboards with dishes arranged according to size and price, all intended for sharing. An adventure in eating, with the vegetarian dishes particularly good.

The gnocci, oh the gnocci, the wine, oh the wine! Im there! im there! ohhhh yeaaah!

Every time we enter winos we get treated with care and respect, the staff are fantastic and the food is brilliant, always something i havent tried and always beautifully presented. Upon entry we always get greeted by the most delicious of staff to sit down to the most delicious of meals and the range of knowledge the staff possesses not just on wine but a range of other interesting cocktails and spirits is both enlightening and refreshing. You are always in good hands. They stock fantastic local produce and some lesser known local boutique wines. (the St Margarets Sav Blanc for example is not only brilliant on the palate but also priced affordably I bought several bottles!)

Cant wish for a better warm atmosphere in winter tucked up by the fire, enjoying beautiful mulled wine and amazing food. You can take any trip you like along the board of brilliant food and never be disappointed, and with a beautiful lad or lass by your side youll be in food-gasm, wine-gasm, and staff-gasm, heaven.

I love Winos. It's my 'go to' restaurant when I want the hubby to take me out for my birthday and we also go there every year for our anniversary. Dined again on Saturday and, again, wow. BEST GNOCCHI ever! Also enjoyed various other items on the blackboard menu including the rocket salad and some seriously awesome mushrooms with goats curd. May have cleared the bowl with some bread it was that good. Plus some delicious Zinfandel! Winos is going to be sorely missed. Thank you Mike and all the crew for the good memories, and good luck in your future endeavors.
