Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Quatre Fois Cinq – four times five – makes 'vingt', or indeed 'vin'. Oblique wordplay aside, this bar in the 11th is a laid-back affair, where wine is indeed the name of the game. And as it happens, 'twenty' is roughly the number of euros we each spent over the course of a leisurely Sunday evening here.

A wine bar is only good as its sommelier, and the staff at Quatre Fois Cinq hardly disappoint. Well-informed and amiable, they guided us from one oenological delight to another; we sampled a fruity Menetou (€8 per glass), a delectable Domaine de la Tour Boisée (€4) and an arresting blend of Cabernet Franc and Malbec grapes. The accompanying nibbles (reasonable at €15 for an assorted menu) were somewhat pedestrian – think the usual smorgasbord of dried meats and bruschettas; but this hardly detracted from the simple pleasure of sipping fine vintages on a lovely terrace. Don't hesitate to drop by in winter either: the elegant indoor space more than compensates for the closure of the terrace.
