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

Un vrai petit coin de France! Authentique! Une très bonne adresse. Nous avons dégusté un délicieux plateau de charcuterie, un plateau de fromages parfaitement affinés Et une superbe Tartiflette, le tout accompagné d’un excellent vin. Un délice servi avec sourire et professionnalisme. Nous ne sommes venus que le dimanche mais prochainement nous viendrons en semaine pour goûter à la cuisine du chef..

Tres bon acceuil. Nice atmosphere, excellent selection of french wines. Food options slightly limited and the same applies to the size of some of the portions, but if you are going for a bit of a drink and a chat, with food on the side as I think is intended, then this is a great place.
