Believe every good review it's amazing!
Great place to try Bordeaux when wines - everyone raves about the 2/3 euro price but the real opportunities are to be able to try some of the more expensive ones - the Pessac Leognan wines were great but what we really loved was having our waiter ( would be a sommelier in many places ) on what to bring next he brought 2 for me to taste .
Recommend the food because so often the characteristics of the wine change .

THE place to try top Bordeaux wines. Glasses of wine start at €3 and the pours are generous. Sommeliers are servers and will guide you to something you like. You can also order 3 - 1/2 pours to try. Wonderful, amazing location and a must try ... LOVED IT

Came here as a recommendation with some friends. Had to wait in line for about 30mins before we got seated. No one advising how long the wait would be, seemed the waiters were run off their feet. We got seated next to the bar which was beautiful next to the stained glass window, giving a gorgeous glow as the sun came through.
Plenty of wines to choose from, by the glass only. Average price 5-6€ which isn’t expensive especially for the quality!
Cheese and meat platters available, small but delicious regardless.
Nice place to start the night before heading for a bigger meal elsewhere.
You won’t be disappointed with the wines!

Ending our France trip in Bordeaux was a highlight and finding this gem of a wine/tasting bar made everything even better.

The waiter was helpful, my husband and I tasted 3 wines accompanied by the cheese plate.... WINE HEAVEN! The ambience, the selection, service all wrapped up into a splendid afternoon closing our trip. We finished with a glass of the St Emilion grand cru.

The pricing is quite reasonable especially for tastings.

We have put Bordeaux on our return list along with BAR A VIN.

A bientot.

We stumbled across this place and compared to other bars, found this one wasn’t overpriced. We had the sample platter which was tasty and a 3 glass of wine (options recommended by the waiter) for 20 euro. Was lovely to sit outside. Would go back.
