The perfect lair for serious wine buffs.
With a long terrace, protected from any adverse weather by its covered passage, Coinstot Vino might feel like the last sliver of paradise for smokers. But not just to them – because anyone lucky enough to drink here can expect pure joy. The menu is bursting with natural, flavourful wines with fun names to boot. A glass of the wine of the season sounds like a spy novel; the charming 'October Rouge' is a dynamic, light balance of grenache and syrah grapes.
To go with it, we choose a generous portion of oxtail terrine, then a chicken supreme with vinegar – one of the house classics. Another unmissable dish at Coinstot Vino is the calzone, with its addictive combination of fior di latte, ham and tomato (€16). And to top it all off, we couldn’t resist the dark chocolate ganache – which we haven’t stopped dreaming about since. At around €20 for the lunchtime set menu (great value considering the neighbourhood), there’s no need to hold back.
And the icing on the cake? If in doubt on the wine list, you can always consult the friendly Guillaume Dupré, owner and natural wine connoisseur, there to point you in the right direction with taste, precision, passion and humour. €25 a bottle will get a bottle worth remembering. And if you’re anything like us, you’ll struggle to stay away from this warm and friendly spot.
