As the name suggests, the emphasis here is on vino (20 selections by the glass, 200 by the bottle). The mellow locals aren’t necessarily wine buffs, so the staff’s dead-on recommendations are much appreciated. Head to the low-lit dining room or tree-lined garden for a pleasant sit-down meal. Entrées like moules Bacchus (mussels cooked in red wine, bacon, onions and herbs) and confit de canard (roasted duck leg) are always satisfying. Service is friendly, if laissez-faire.
