Be aware that this place is just a wine shop. It’s obvious that the French owners try to sell their wines by giving you the opportunity to taste by glass. We were also surprised to find ourselves in clouds of smoke shortly after ordering a glass of wine. What a strange concept! We didn’t like this place and would not... More

This is a nice little wine bar in comfortable surroundings. Wine was good, not an incredible selection available. We order a few tapas and they all tasted very good. They had found some very good cheeses and sausages. Very nice friendly owners. Only thing we wished was that they wouldn't allow smoking inside, it is a very small space and... More

Worth the little extra effort to find this spot off an enclosed walkway, with good wine selection and wonderful cheeses, engaging, friendly proprietors, and all in a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere. Our grown family thoroughly enjoyed our late afternoon visit. Will definitely go back.when we return to Dominican Republic.

Only top appraisal for this little "frenchy" wine bar ! An excellent selection of various wines from all over the world, for budget-conscious consumers to premium wines lovers.... The friendly young couple behind the bar also proposes excellent tapas and tasty plates, for a quick "aperitif" at lunch time or a long yet lively evening. Nice "upscale" decor, very good... More

This place is very nice for a glass (or few) of very nice wine. I went there with my boyfriend to have a nice glass of wine and we ended up sharing a massive cheese platter. It had been more than a month that i didn't eat good cheese and to be honest, it was so good! The owner of... More

Such a wonderful treat to find a sophisticated wine bar with such appealing atmosphere and truly gracious owners. The young French couple will great you in French, Spanish and or English. They know their wines and offer a weekly special so that you can try new wines. There is food that they pair with the wines by the glass. You... More
