Best Quality:Price Wine in Chengdu
(by a huge margin)
I have been going to this place for the best part of the year and I love it, not least because it remains pretty obscure. I'm now worried that my personal contributions aren't going to keep their business afloat; so please give it a go, you won't regret it.
The decor recently received an upgrade and no longer looks savaged by someone with a fetish for metal, concrete and torturous seating. It's comfortable, offers a reasonable amount of privacy, if needed, and is generally very pleasant. The curtains separating 'the booths' still feel like they've been pulled out of a bordello, but that just adds to the charm.
The food still feels like it's flown in from somewhere very far away, but at least it arrives warm and they are happy to offer their hangry customers a discount (or some complimentary stuff) if you ask. The owner is usually cool with ordering in shaokao, noodles or chuancai from nearby restaurants... some of which actually go surprisingly well with wine.
In contrast to the review below, I find the pricing to be sober compared to other places offering wines, and I'm not exactly working at Chevron. Though you might have to fork out for a bottle to really feel the value.

The food is ok, we had the charcuterie and le plateau du chef. The bread is aweful, it's some sweet toast which does not go with the food nor the wine. The service is very slow, it took a long time for the bread to come. We took 2 glasses of wine, the cheapest glass is for 35 RMB. The place isn't cozy, you just feel not comfortable in the chairs and the small table, the music was loud. The overall experience wasn't good. The staff are friendly.
It's pricy relatively to the value
