“Cramped, buzzy, with a great wine list” to accompany “innovative and reliable food” – it’s no surprise that this “very different” ‘bistrot à vin’ a couple of minutes’ walk from the Opera House is such a Covent Garden “favourite”. They only order ten cases of any wine (hence the name), which means you’ll always find something “interesting” to drink – and “the head sommelier is wonderful!”

“Great French-style bistro”“a bit of a squeeze” with “lots of hustle and bustle” – close to the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden. The “interesting if slightly limited menu” is overshadowed by the “amazing wines” on a constantly changing list. Only 10 cases of each are bought at a time – hence the name (but you can also “order from the much lengthier list at their wine bar next door, which always includes interesting options at various price points, as well as classics”).

“A real find so close to the Opera House”, this independent Covent Garden wine bar/bistro offers a “sometimes brilliant but always good – eccentric and eclectic – wine list”, which is “ever changing” as only 10 cases of each wine are stocked at any point in time. “Friendly and knowledgeable staff” are on hand to advise on your choice and to present a short menu of “beautifully crafted small plates and charcuterie”, with “particularly enticing blackboard specials”.

For 32 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
