In 2018, restaurant Macfarlane’s morphed into this winning wine bar/shop near the promenade, where the “excellent selection of wines” (over 100) comes “at a fair mark-up” (with “only a limited corkage for choosing off the shelf”); the “much locally sourced” sharing plates hold their own, and while the “menu does not change often, there are great daily specials” to compensate.

This “wine bar/shop in the oldest part of Douglas” offers “excellent and interesting dishes” with a focus on “local seafood”, backed up by “exceptional wines, with expertise on hand”. “The restaurant has a wine list but you can also pick any bottle from the shop for a small corkage charge”. Formerly known as Macfarlane’s restaurant, the business was relaunched under its new identity in 2018.
