The wine and drink options here are never-ending. We only popped in for a quick drink but the drinks were made very nice and the staff were friendly enough. Their isn't much seating at the front of the bar and the back of the bar is often closed for private parties. It's lovely for a quick drink and a getaway... More

I booked a table for 10 and only 2 of us showed up. I understand this was not an ideal situation for the owner and although it was out of my control was very apologetic after he made a big deal of it so my friend and I finished our wine and left to free up the table for another... More

This is without a doubt the best wine bar in Nyon, fantastic selection of reds, whites and rosés, plus a complete bar with whiskeys (Scottish and Japanese) rums, gins, everything! Also not to be missed is the beer selection from all over the world, including local micro brews!

I love coming here. The wine is good, the tapas are very good and service is friendly. The years go by and Nyon changes, but certain places don't change. "Le Café des Arts" is such a place. I'll keep coming and will always bring friends.

A really friendly place with an impressive selection of wines and knowledgeable manager. I would agree with other reviewers it's definitely not a restaurant but it does do a wonderful selection of steak tartars. A pleasant place to sit outside during the summer.

Looks like an endless happy hour. Impressive wine supply. Limited menu with many tartars, salads& cheese. Warm place, full of life.

Very good wine list, good localization, a bit expensive but it's SWI. The owner could be more kindful, and not so dry. The terrace it's great, but inside a bit cold decoration.

The choice of wines is excellent and constantly updated. This is the ideal place to chill out after a long day at work or visiting Nyon. The atmosphere is calm and cozy so do not expect any animation. During the summer the small terrasse is nice an cool and in the winter the couches are perfect. This is NOT a... More

This is my favorite place to go in Nyon. Its got outside tables, a bar inside and back room with couches etc.. Its the kind of place to go with a friend for a few very good wines and aperitifs. Ive had the food a few times and its simple and very good quality, for example the salmon tartare is... More
