Been here before on a previous visit in December. Went back recently on a weekend break in May. The fact that when you enter all tables had reservations on them show how popular it is. Small but friendly staff. But as wine bars go reasonable prices. Nice atmosphere within walking distance from town centre. Would recommend

Visited this wine bar after having dinner and found it to be exactly what we were looking for. Good selection of wines (the malbec was lovely) at decent prices, as well as live music made it a very enjoyable evening.

When you're a wine bar that only serves cheese and steak it's important to be on point. Wine - lovely Company - great Staff - attentive Entertainment - interesting (guitar and melodic steel drum type thing, very good) I'd be interested to know the rationale behind sou vide steak as the only option. I'm coming out, I have issues with... More

Hi Matt, I am sorry that you did not like the steak. It would have been mutually beneficial if you would have mentioned it when you started eating the steak. I believe I am 'on point' with the steak as previous reviews show and I have enough regular customers who come for the steak to help prove the point. I... More

Visited the Petrus Wine Bar last night for dinner. We opted for the fillet steaks, cooked perfectly to our taste, so flavoursome and juicy. Lovely glass of red to accompany it. Great value. Would definitely recommend and we'll be visiting again. Would like to go on a Friday eve when we understand they have live music and try the cheeses... More

Been going for two years now and the steaks continue to taste just as good and great place to have them. Wine is always good and rotated so doesn't become too similar and good to try something different. Live music most Fridays and that adds to the atmosphere and well worth visiting different acts from around town.

Visited the wine bar on Saturday night. Limited number of tables so I would advise booking. This is the 4th time we have been there for steak and fries and haven't been disappointed yet. The fillet steak was delicious and cooked just how I like it. We also asked the waiter if he could recommend a good red wine. We... More

Delicious piece of rib eye - cooked just as I wanted it. The menu benefits from its brevity - good food done well and with service that works fine. Decent wine too. No complaints, indeed, this is a top place.
