Description: The philosophy behind the running of the wine bar is that Caveau want their guests to drink quality wines all the time and in order to do this, they have brought down the mark ups on the more expensive wines.
No visit will be complete without a hedonistic free-fall into Caveau's seductive selection of local cheeses and cured meats, where the delights on offer have been carefully selected to compliment the wines in true French style.
Everything from Caveau's delectable eggs Benedict and the famous 'Jean sandwich', to soups and finger-style tappas (which include meat platters for four with lamb ham, wafers of smoked ham or salami) set the tone for menu differentiation, along with those mouth-watering chalk-board specials that change from season to season.
Then of course, there are the die-hard favourites like beef, chicken or tuna cubes served with their respective bearnaise, peanut or yoghurt dipping sauces.
Undoubtedly, you will encounter some firsts in this deli, and the purveyors of these fine foods will be only too happy to challenge your palates. But beware! Certain of these delicacies are not for the cholesteroly well endowed!
