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

We had been recommended this place and as keen wine fans my boyfriend and I decided to give it a go. The building itself if very interesting and unusual, and the wine list is relatively extensive, with the owner providing some good advice regarding the menu. However, when we gave him our order for food, he appeared to not really... More

Worst thing ever! The food is just awfull, and a very bad representation of Portuguese cuisine. The place is suposed to be all about wines but it was just a terrible experience. I've asked for 2 wines that they did not have, after that the owner came to out table and told us that they didn't have much wines at... 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.
