Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

A seriously classy outfit that stands out in its neighbourhood, offering exceptional wines and deli snacks.

With its midnight blue façade, smiling service, elegant windows, hams and sausages suspended from the ceiling and well-ordered shelves of bottles, wine bar and deli La Cave de Belleville is a seriously classy outfit – despite its location between a kebab shop and a grocery store in the middle of the 19th arrondissement.

You might settle to a platter of cheese and charcuterie (€19), loaded with Roquefort, Morbier and Tomme de Brebis, plus saucisson, home made pâté and salted ham to go with a fresh baguette and figgy bread. And because it’s a wine store, a chat with the staff lets you match various glasses of red and white with your choice. If you’re feeling more adventurous, there are things like seafood tapas with razor clams, scallops or octopus (€10.50). It’s not a cut-price dégustation, but the experience is well worth it.
