One floor up above the main street, this friendly wine bar welcomes with its warm rustic decor, polished floorboards and bar made from 200-year-old oak wine barrels. Tapas is the go here. Share a few plates, such as their famous Asian-cut calamari, with a wine from one of the many Australian or New Zealand boutique wineries on the wine list, or cosy up on a couch with a good coffee. For something more substantial, popular dishes include chargrilled eye fillet on polenta, slow-cooked ox cheek and ox tail on risotto, or Moroccan-style chicken tagine.
