Nice Off The Beaten Path Enoteca In Unique Space

Simple casual restaurant with a tapas type menu. Good selection of wine. Served in a cavernous centuries old structure that used to funnel water to the defunct fountain that fronts the restaurant. Food was good but not great. A bit rich but could have been a a result of my selection. Service... read more

Very, very difficult to find even with a map, but well worth it because we had a lovely meal last week. The waiting staff were very friendly and the food excellent.

We stopped in for drinks figuring we'd spend a short time over a glass of wine before a nearby jazz lounge opened but ended up skipping the music to revel in some fantastic wine. Wines are available by the glass and the bottle and we also ordered a vintage Port and Madiera. If you are wavering between one beverage or... More

Very attractive and historic, 'stone vault' setting. Tasty and well presented tapas style food. Very interesting wines, including those sold by the glass (which isn't always the case in wine bars). Proprietor very willing to talk about the wines and suggest food and wine pairings. We had two very enjoyable evenings there.

Well that was a huge disappointment!! Great location, and what a unique building for a restaurant, what a shame though that all their food is microwaved!! We ordered the 3 course menu with 2 wines for 22 euro, but when mussels arrived on a hot plate but were absolutely cold we knew something was up, we send the food back,... More

We had a late flight into Lisbon and an early flight out. Chafariz was a lovely place to hang out with late midnight dinner. Kitchen closes at 0100 and this made our pick... Very interesting pairings of wine and food with my favourite being the sparkling wine and bacon wrapped dates...

The setting is really special, as others have written, we thoroughly enjoyed both the experience and the food here. We tried the degustation menu which consisted of a glass of wine with each of the four courses: sparkling white with the starter, white with the fish course, red with the meat and port with the dessert.

Charming tapas bar with good wine selection and tasty tapas. A little bit on the expensive side but service and setting were really good.

Tucked into one of the stone water towers that were part of Lisbon's old aqueduct system, this enoteca delivers. The food was delicious, and the wine list was not huge but had a lot of interesting selections. João Paulo Martin, one of Portugal's best wine journalists consults on the list. Service was competent and gracious. Highly recommended.
