    Really great menu, changes daily, full of surprises. Try the salt baked celeriac and sherry-like Niepoort wine. Stand at the bar and eat there!

    Go to Vinoteca straight after work to ensure you get somewhere to sit. Great intimate venue with a fantastic selection of wine. Try out their nibbles too - really high quality stuff!
