    Best and most diverse list of wines by the glass in the area. Lovely owners and staff. Definitely try the truffle bread. Love the local happenings like movie nights etc

    Great food, great service and great wine. Would recommend this wine bar if you’re in East Melbourne. I highly recommend the truffle bread, meatballs and gnocchi!

    The food was absolutely delicious. We shared the French Connection, Sweet and Salty Almond Clusters and Salmon and Barramundi croquettes. Really good!

    A hidden gem! It's not a very big fancy restaurant. There are few choicest items on the menu. An excellent personalised service with rustic ambiance!
