Visited this wine bar after having dinner and found it to be exactly what we were looking for. Good selection of wines (the malbec was lovely) at decent prices, as well as live music made it a very enjoyable evening.

Visited the Petrus Wine Bar last night for dinner. We opted for the fillet steaks, cooked perfectly to our taste, so flavoursome and juicy. Lovely glass of red to accompany it. Great value. Would definitely recommend and we'll be visiting again. Would like to go...More
