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

Couldn’t fault the evening we had at Authentique last night. Always enjoy our hosts eclectic wine recommendations, but we’re blown away by the beetroot risotto which was our favourite dish. All in all everything that a neighbourhood restaurant come wine bar should be. A real local favourite

My friend and I adore this place, like children in a candy shop but instead of sweets you get to marvel and choose from all the delicious charcuterie, wine, bread, little desserts. Everything is superb. The menu is small but packed with flavour and the service is great, knowledgeable, kind and very friendly.

Delicious food, amazing range of wine and such great service! Visited for an anniversary meal and they added some lovely touches helping to make the night special! Same guys who also, during the height of lockdown (first time round!), donated some fresh yeast so I could bake when everywhere was out of it - will never forget that act of kindness 🙂

Very good selection of distinctive cheeses and wines by the glass. Not inexpensive but worth paying that bit more for the quality.

We had a wonderful evening tasting wine and trying some of the food. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and the staff (especially Alice) gave some of the best service we’ve ever had! Cannot wait to come back and try some more wine for another lovely evening out!

We love your combination of high quality, limited choice wine & food, with regular changes and different regions, and the relaxed and informal ambience. Enjoyed our first experience of the flight of wines. Will be back and intend to recommend local friends to treat themselves to a visit.
