In an area brimming with wine bars, Eldiset is always busy, which should tell you something. The focus is on Catalan wines, and the staff will help you find something to suit your tastes – it helps that there are four choices each of whites and reds by the glass as well as a couple of cavas. The food arguably plays second-fiddle to the wines, though the cheese platter is pretty good.
The name gives the game away – Viblioteca is a wine bar. But it is so much more than that. In a space not much bigger a double garage, Viblioteca seats about 30, and somehow from behind the bar the small team conjures up incredible sharing plates.
There’s no stove in the ‘kitchen’, so no grilled or fried dishes, but it doesn’t matter – smoked sardines on toast with idizibal cheese, tuna tataki and avocado salad, a brilliant deconstructed caprese salad, confit potato with jamon and a poached egg are just some of the many highlights here.
The owner is an oenophile and will help you choose wines by the glass or bottle – she has loads that aren’t on the list. The prices are reasonable and there are around 50 different cheeses to choose from to finish. Absolute gold. Bookings essential.
