About Authentique Epicerie & Bar

Authentique – Epicerie & Bar is the brainchild of Amaury, Alexandre, Matthieu and Thomas, 4 French guys who grew up with a passion for artisan food and drinks.
Having lived abroad for years, we have witnessed a strong crave, from local communities, for craft products from France and the French Speaking world.

Authentique – Epicerie & Bar is our way to combine our enthusiasm for Francophone Gastronomy with our urge to share and learn with you about the savoir-faire, the products, their creators and terroirs.

As a result, every month you will have the chance to discover one of the 12 Francophone Regions we are showcasing, through a carefully curated selection of food and drinks as well as a monthly dinner designed by one of our guest chefs.

A cosy and friendly Bar with an always renewed selection of Regional Artisan products

15+ wines by the glass
2 craft beers on tap and 50+ by the bottle
A choice of mouth watering sharing boards of cheese and charcuterie

the highest quality wine and produce and exceptionally good value. we found the music a bit loud and distracting, and it's not the most comfortable venue, but this was more than compensated for by the warm, knowledgeable service and the quality of everything.

This is a great place with delicious wine, meat and cheese. The staff are really friendly and helpful and that contributes hugely to a lovely night out.

First time here and what a great place. I went along with a group of friends who are totally foodies (really into their wine and cheese) and they loved the place (just as well as I choose it). The wine and cheese menu is extensive and thus something to suit all our tastes. The service was fantastic and the atmosphere great lively friendly vibe. Nice layout too... can't recommend this place enough! We will be going back.

Such a great concept! An hybrid place focused only on independent producers. So easy to navigate through the various regions showcased. You can be sure that if you eat here, you'll not leave empty handed from the shop area :) The food is heavenly, the venue looks stunning and the drinks are amazing. The staff knows a thing or two about wine and will always be able to advise on the perfect one to pair with what you'd like to eat. Price wise, you can barely find a better price point in this city when it comes to good wine bars. Even compared to you local pub, the wine is not that expensive. Highly recommended!! Thanks guys

Thank you Thomas for this feedback, we hope to see you again soon to discover another region with us! And you'll be able to sip a glass of rose in our garden by the end of June! All the best, The Authentique Team

Great cheese and wine list, but the wine and cheese pairing was expensive and misleading - 4 cheeses only came with 1 expensive wine! Not a pairing, unfortunately.

Hi Caryn, Thank you for your review and we're happy you enjoyed our product. We apologise if you were mislead regarding the regional board and wine pairing. We decided to showcase Burgundy cheeses and pair them with our favourite white from the region (we've changed it since you came, following your feedback). We offer extensive pairing experiences during our monthly winemaker dinners and as it's still early days, we're working on a full tasting experience with hot food from September. We hope to see you again soon and make up for this little disappointment. All the best, Alex, Matt, Amaury, Thomas and Vincent.
