This smart little metropolitan bistro is a real draw for wine lovers, thanks to a policy of fair mark-ups that even extends to fine wines and fizz: £37 for a bottle of Moët is the cheapest we’ve
found among the tourist traps of Covent Garden. What’s more, the restaurant stocks only 10 cases of the 10 reds and 10 whites on its list – before moving on to 10 new options. With everything
available by the glass, why not indulge in a spot of food matching: the day’s chalked-up menu features unpretentious, well-sourced choices along the lines of snails on toast, full-flavoured goats’
cheese and red onion tart (served warm with an oven-roasted fig), or juicy Barnsley lamb chop with a side of buttery cavolo nero. Readers also appreciate the ‘fun atmosphere’ and ‘extremely

With the wine list. Decided to drink several glasses of different wines as there were so many options! Great buzzy little bistro. Great atmosphere and no canned music, so I could hear what my dining companion was staying. Service was exemplary and very swift. However, I think they could have pointed out that there was a £1.50 charge pp for bread and butter rather than leaving us to discover this in small print at the bottom of the wine list (as it took me a long time to get there as I was deciphering what was on offer). No need to ask for water - bottles of both sparkling and still water were immediately placed on the table. Limited eating options, but they all sounded very good. Plumped for the pappardelle with venison ragu - delicious, the pasta was so light it just dissolved in your mouth. I would definitely go back, however, I did think the food pricing was a bit steep. However, the place was full (good job I reserved a table) so others are not so bothered with the cost. Came to £41.50 each, that was for a main, cheeseboard and three glasses of wine each.

One of the few occasions that it has been possible to sit outside in the evening this summer.
Delicious simple dishes, outstanding list of unusual wines and a real knowledge of wine matching. Have been here several times and can't fault a thing.

What a great find... quirky, cafe style eatery with the menu on the wall, chalk board style. Welcoming staff who were very knowledgeable about the wines. We enjoyed the Jambon, and goats cheese to start. Small portions but more than enough with the delicious bread. Our main was Cote du Boeuf which was delicious. A huge piece of steak, gorgeous chips and rocket with parmesan. All very simple but just perfect and not bad value.The wine was fabulous and were given some great advice.
All in all, a perfect night out before the Theatre.

A smallish restaurant which was quite noisy due to the uncarpeted floors and all the tables being quite close to each other. This, however, was only a tiny fault.
In all other respects we had a most agreeable evening. Our waitress was 1st class, being both friendly, courteous and efficient, without being excessively so. Our meals were delivered in a very timely manner and all 3 of us were very impressed with our choices.
The wines we chose were quite satisfactory and reasonably priced and, noise aside, the atmosphere was conducive to a very enjoyable evening.
We would all return again.
One other small thing was that the wine list was hard to read as it was presented in a stylistic hand written format that was not hugely legible.
But a most enjoyable overall experience. Thankyou.

Booked 10 Cases after quick online research and was delighted with our luck!
Really friendly welcome and service, interesting food menu and intriguing wine list…we chose a white Burgundy which punched well above its price.
I'm sure we will be back!
