Expect good food and wine from Wine BOS, a retailer and whoesaler of wines from Asutralia, Spain, France and Italy.
Have been patronising this chill-out place shortly after its opening at Klapa.
Great place for hanging out with friends because of its affordable range of wine. My first bottle is Searidge Merlot and it has always been my choice of wine till now. Good recommendation from the server.
Great ambience. Love the band but the speakers could use some maintenance. If you love alfresco chill-out, this is the place to go. The tables are well-spaced compared to the branch at Katong.
Service has always been warm for all my visits and the servers have never failed to acede to my requests for refills of water, more serviettes, sauces etc.
Wine promotion is rather value for money. When I first visit Winebos, the third bottle of wine is free if you order 2 bottles. They keep your bottle for you if you are not able to finish it. Now the promotion has changed to minimum order of $80 worth of wine before getting the next bottle free.
Heard that the Klapa branch has shifted its shoplot further down the alley. Has yet to visit it. Will update again once I drop by.
My friends (5 pax) and I went to Wine Bos (Jalan Klapa) this evening for dinner...the service from that old man could have been more approachable.
Moreover, the same old man could have been more upfront with the promo sirlon steak going for $9. We gathered from another staff that that promo was only possible if we were to order a drink with it....
This review will be about their service and organization, not their food and drink.
I called them on Friday October 3 to make sure they would be open on the following Monday because Monday would be a holiday. I was told yes. I then asked if they would still have their happy hour special, again because of the holiday. The person on the other end of the phone checked with someone else and then told me yes. I proceeded to make arrangements for a party of six to come there on Monday at 6 pm. After a one hour bus ride, I got there about 5:45 pm. There were no tables set up outside and the door was locked. Was I too early I thought? No, at the front of the restaurant was a sign saying they are closed on Monday October 6. Very disappointing.

I spent a few nights last World Cup at Winebos at Jalan Klapa cheering on the Holland team and nursing some delightfully budget wines. It’s a nice casual place for a cheap night out and the wine selection, though limited, is generally quite palatable. When I first heard Winebos opened a new outlet at Katong Village, I was ecstatic – yay new hangout place in the east!
The new Winebos is a much bigger place compared to the Jalan Klapa outlet. There’s both al fresco and indoor seating, and the general décor here is slightly more posh. The food menu here also seems to have expanded. Other than the reliable steak which is a staple order for me, we also ordered the pork knuckle and the veal. They have a separate menu which allows us to order from the neighboring restaurants so in true gluttony fashion, we ordered some roasted pork and braised chicken (from the Hong Kong Café).
The food was generally competent and all that meat was crying out for red wine accompaniment. I picked out a 2007 Barbera d'Alba "Bricco dei Merli" which at $78 a bottle was excellent – deep ruby red, soft and velvety, bursting with sweet cherries, perfect! We were quite happily savoring our very meaty dinner.
The live band started playing at around 10pm and they were surprisingly good. Service was acceptable, it was difficult getting the wait staff at times but the boss came around and asked how we liked the food, so that was a nice touch. It’s good to know that the 1 free bottle for every two bottles purchased promotion is also available at this new outlet.
I love that I now have a new wine joint in my backyard. I am already plotting when next to lure my westie friends to the east! Can’ wait to try out the Domaine Grand Veneur Chateauneuf du pape ($108), yums.
