We visited Tomabnina two times. During our first visit the waiter offered us great regional wine - 12€ per bottle. This man was wonderful, we could spend all night there just to chat with him.

On the other day we decided to visit again. We ordered two platters (smaller, 10€ each) and wine. We were served by different waiter, I think owner’s son. Food was poor so we decided to change restaurant for next meal. Magic of previous waiter was missing.

I do not recommend to order platters there (I didn’t try any other food), but it is a wonderful place for drinking some wine.

We booked a table as a large group and despite being late the table was ready for us and we were welcomed.
The guys shared the meat platter (with potatoes and veggies) and the rest of us shred cheese and meat platters.
All really great and extra bread brought on request as the children loved it with the olive oil.
The primitivo wine was excellent.
The children also had date pastries and a chocolate cake and said they were great.
Relaxed atmosphere, and a friendly warm host.
We look forward to seeing you next year.

We walked in off the street on the off chance and found this perfect little wine bar. Cozy with a really friendly and relaxing atmosphere and a rustic feel. The owner was a fantastic host, friendly approachable and serving some gorgeous local wines which are well worth sampling. We went initially as a couple and liked it so much we went back as a group of 4 adults and a child) , it was lovely to relax and chat- I would say that being a small bar it would be likely to get busy in peak season but whilst we were there it was idyllic.
