About The 10 Cases - Bistrot à Vin

The 10 Cases is an unpretentious buzzing little Bistrot with wine as its main focus. We only ever buy 10 cases of the wines that you will find on our short list in order to constantly try new things rather than settle for a list of old favorites.

We only have 10 tables, which you can book for lunch or dinner. We also have an outside terrace, bar counter and Cave a Vin next door which remain reservation free for drinks and snacks.

Our menu revolves around a monthly changing offering of tapas style dishes and sharing plates, 3 entrees, 3 mains and 3 desserts as well as a selection of daily changing specials.

Be careful booking a table for two, as it's booked for 1,5 hour autamatically. Then you might be asked to change the table if it is booked later.

As always a night out in Bistrot a Vin was perfect, it had been a while and service was just as good. We had a beautiful bottle of Sancerre from next door too. The squid and iberica croquetas fo start with, followed by truffled parsnip soup, quail with lentils and then a vanilla cheesecake with quince was all very delicious.

The food and wine were excellent but the place stands out because it has such a lovely atmosphere and fantastic service. We had to leave suddenly when my guest had an emergency at home and we weren’t charged for the wine we’d just started — really classy

I've been a couple of times for work and loved it, so I took my partner for a birthday lunch and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It's not showy or pretentious, quite simple and not a large restaurant, but the food and wine were fantastic and the staff very friendly. Real quality. It's not cheap but as a treat, worth it. I noticed a downstairs room where you could have a private party which could be very nice too.

A charming bistro near Covent Garden.

The food rivals many of the better bistros in Paris!

Outstanding tapas style plates: Filet of beef (£8), fried squid, and the best beetroot salad I’ve ever had! (£7)

Great for group to share, they also have lovely and ever-changing mains.

Quite a gem...

My sister chose this restraurant and it was decided on the wine list over everything else.

The wine did not disappoint, it was extremely delicious and the staff were extremely professional and friendly.

As we were mainly there for the wine, we decided to just grab some bits off the menu for sharing, meat platter, olives, and some bread.
We also ordered some ham and cheese croquettes which were absolutely delicious!
It's a lovely atmosphere, especially for an intimate meal. (Probably not for my sister and I when we have a glass of red and become even louder and more giggly).

It was very pleasant.

Lovely little bistrot tucked a way in a side street in Covent garden. We found it a few years back by chance and this was only our second visit. Loved it the same. Food and service is great. It's a pity you have to give your table up after 1.5 hours, but they do warn you when you book and when you arrive. As it is small and busy, the noise levels can be a bit high, didn't bother me much but my partner was not too happy.

Lovely spot and lovely meal with great drink. We had an enjoyable dinner and a nice evening. I would thoroughly recommend, although perhaps I would suggest that you go there in more than a group of 2, so that you get 'longer time' to enjoy the visit. As the only light concern I would have is that when we ordering meals we were advised that we might want to order soon as there is only a 90 mins window for a 2 person table and that some of the meals (particularly the plates to share) take 45 mins to get ready. Although, beyond this the staff didn't put us under any pressure to leave at the end of our 90 mins period, there was a constant feeling that we ought to be eating up and moving on quickly.

I don't know how to resolve the issue of ensuring customers leave after a reasonable time, but perhaps the first stage would be to have meal options that didn't have a long preparation time so that the 'awkward' conversation was never really needed.

However, overall, I would recommend this place for a lovely meal, lovely food and wine and a pleasant atmosphere all round.
