From Adelaide to Paris in 10 seconds

Walk through a doorway in an Adelaide laneway and you are instantly transported from South Australia to a Paris-style bar a vins.

I discovered La Buvette last week - a welcoming cross between Willi's and the Baron Rouge. 

There is the blackboard menu of mainly French wines by the glass; all reasonably priced. 

There is a food  menu featuring  classics like fresh oysters with mignonette; escargots a l'Alsacienne and boeuf bourguinon.

And there is an un mistakeable French joie de vivre.

Apparently it has been on Gresham St for years, with wine industry figure John Retsas a partner. But somehow it had passed me by. My bad. 

I popped in for a glass of Chablis. Next time I'll spend the evening. Maybe start with a Suze Tonic, or pastis and take it from there. 

There is a definite Euro-chic ambience here and seriously knowledgeable staff. 

You can even enjoy a drink on the sidewalk on warmer days. 

La Buvette is open Tuesday-Saturday.
