Went here on Sunday evening based on the reviews.
Small wine shop but very neat and clean and not a bad selection although not as extensive as others like DC Boutique Bistro. Prices range from 250,000 dong and the average bottle of Australian, Chilean or Argentinian is around 300 - 400,000. We chose a recommended Malbec from Argentina and went upstairs to eat.
The upstairs is cosy and we got a nice table overlooking the street. Room was airconditioned.
We chose starters (fresh spring rolls and a home made terrine, each 75,000 dong) and opted for the main meals of meat which were the Aussie steak and the NZ lamb chops.
Not a very large menu with only 6 main dishes, but there were enough starters/soups/salads including a mixed cold plate and a cheese plate. You could also get a beefburger so just about everyone will find something to try.
Spring rolls were fresh, nice shrimp, really quite good. The only ones we have had that were better were over at the Exchange Cafe. Terrine (country firm pate) was very good and served with crisp dill pickles. Both dishes had ample portions.
The mains were ok but a little less tasteful than the starters. The steak had been ordered Medium/Rare but arrived a little over done so that it was medium and not very juicy which ended up being a bit too chewy. Flavours were very good though and the meat came with asparagus instead of the tired old broccoli and cauliflower that seems to be served every where you go these days. The lamb chops were cooked exactly right and had been deboned prior to serving. The only problem here was the mashed potatoes not creamy or tasteful and seemed more like an instant mix as I have had identical tasting/texture mashed at several other restaurant. I thought the red wine reduction sauce was a bit heavy on the rosemary but it did not stop me from devouring the chops. I think too many restaurants make the error of putting all of their sauces directly on the meats instead of serving the sauce on the side giving the customer a chance to choose how much or if any to use.
The Malbec was indeed a very powerful wine (it was recommended by the young man in the wine shop downstairs), heavy, full bodied and at 14% not for the light hearted. Kind of a tough wine and very similar to an Italian table wine.
The good thing was the corkage, only 50,000 dong for any bottle from the shop.
Overall, the service was first class, friendly, helpful, smiling, courteous, knowledgeable, a real pleasure.
The bill for the two starters, two mains, two beers and the bottle of wine cam to just under 1 million dong. No tax or service, so we left 10% as a staff gratuity.
We bought three bottles of assorted wines which we had not tried before prior to leaving.
A good experience and worth another visit.

Winter's here so it's time to move indoors and upstairs at Delicious Wines. It is a very airy room where you can drink the eponymous grog - both reasonably priced and from a largish selection - and eat a dinner which puts the stuff next door to shame, in my opinion.
The dinner menu is small but dishes are very nicely cooked, including that acid test, the rare steak.
However, the cheese plate was disappointng at the price as only six dull crackers (made of a variety of papier mache, as far as I could tell) were offered, but management seemed to listen very carefully to suggestions regarding this dish (offer a choice of crackers; nuts and dried fruit to be served in a separate bowl to avoid the disturbing plague-boil effect when they adhere to the cheeses).
It will be interesting to see whether they make any changes based on these remarks.

I came here with my friends after seeing good review on TNH. The place was up to expectation: a good range of wine for you to select, a good range of food as well (that surprised me because I did not expect that much types of food in such a small restaurant).

Moreover, the place is cozy; friendly staff, price is good ( we paid 700.000VND for 2 people' full mouth of food and a good sauvignon bottle). Definitely come back again

Great food and great wine here, this place is a super addition to Hanoi. We showed up un-announced as a party of 6 and we were very well looked after by Mr Dat who is a savvy host with great english.

Primarily a wine shop with a fantastic stock wines across all price ranges (from 250k up), we picked two bottles off the shelves and they simply add a 50k corkage per bottle. All in all, a very fair pricing system.
Really interesting food menu, I had come expecting finger food, but there is a good range of starters, mains and desserts, but sadly no veggie main. My smoked salmon salad was delicious, and I suggested they do an optional main course larger portion, so maybe they will (Mr Dat was eager for feedback!).
Others in our party had smoked chicken salad, the burger and the steak - all approved. The food is very reasonably priced and in my opinion better than more expensive restaurant options in the area.

Atmosphere-wise, we were sat inside, surrounded by wines, and the 6 of us helped by wine, created our own atmosphere! But the outdoor tables are a better option if your going as a couple. They might need a re-think when the weather gets too hot or too cold.

But overall, j'approuve!

We'd been meaning to try this place out since it opened a few weeks ago, and we're very glad we did. Put simply it's a wine shop selling imported wine, and for a small service charge of 50k per bottle you can opt to drink in. The place itself is nicely done out, with outdoor and indoor seating. The manager Dat was very friendly and welcoming, he knew his stuff about wine - having lived in both France and Italy - and his passion for wine was evident. Dat recommend an Australia Shiraz which went down very well with the 4 of us.

It's a little on the quiet side at the moment - it looks quite pricey from the outside looking in, maybe that's scaring people off? But given we were only paying around 350 - 400k for a very good bottle of wine, drinking in - I considered that a bargain!

They also do food - we'd already eaten so didn't sample any - and we'll be back again soon to give the food a go.
