Wine Odyssey is a chic, romantic wine bar and restaurant located in Hannam-dong. Warm and inviting, it breeds the feeling of romance as soon as you walk in, with the dim lights and plush furnishings. With an extensive wine list, it’s the perfect place for oenophiles. They also have live music on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. The perfect ambiance for those looking to go somewhere special.
The menu is large, filled with Spanish and Italian tapas dishes and main courses, with a few Russian favourites thrown in as a nod to its owner. The Setas à la Cazuela (W18,000) comes highly recommended. Garlic mushrooms came sizzling in the pan and doused in a delicious garlic oil that was perfectly flavoured with garlic without being too strong. The mushrooms are so juicy you will want to wipe the bowl clean.
The Lobster Pasta (W35,000) is another stand out dish. It is so beautifully presented you’ll feel as though you are being spoiled. Generous chunks of lobster are strewn through the rich and tasty tomato sauce, and served over spaghetti.
