We visited based on previous reviews and we weren't disappointed. The staff were friendly and talked through the menu - we chose the lamb shoulder and it was excellent. Really relaxed atmosphere and service was great. Also really like that they keep filling your glasses up with water to keep hydrated whilst drinking the amazing wine from the region. I would definitely recommend!

Had a dinner there on Friday night and was seated at one of the higher bar tables. Place was comfortably full with other folk there either having dinner or drinks and small plates.

We opted to the $45/pp set menu which was pretty much a serving of everything On the menu. Food was well presented, orignal and very tasty with good size plates which are well priced if you just go for the individual plates. The meal started very well with excellent House made sourdough Standout was the gravlax salmon, roasted lamb shoulder and house made kimchi with sour cream and basil. Inventive food combinations that worked well. All served on locally made earthenware plates and bowls which was a nice touch.

As the place is a wine bar they also have an excellent wine and beer list.

I would totally recommend and good to find somewhere in Marlborough doing contemporary and stylish food.

We had several shared dishes like olives, paté and fries. Really yummy! And the wine was quite good! After all we had a recommended gin tonic with topping/ flavor by the bar tender! Was a great choice! Glad we came here, parked the campervan in the rare city center spots and walked to that lovely dinner place! Totally cool and modern!

Fab tapas bar with a great food and drink menu. Atmosphere inside was relaxed with a nice buzz about it. Staff were all really helpful and knowledgeable in explaining each dish on the menu and also provided recommendations. We had the homemade sourbread, burrata, lamb pancake, pan fried broccoli and new potatoes to share, all were fantastic and so tasty. I particularly enjoyed the new potatoes with buttermilk dressing, they were amazing and I could have ate a second portion!! Definitely pop on here if you are in the area and looking for good food / drink in a chilled out venue.
