Staff was friendly and very knowledgable about the wines. If you're buying by the glass they let you try several kinds before you pick the one you want. Cheese selection was quite good, and very diverse (cow milk, goat milk and sheep milk). I recommend stopping by in the afternoon, as it was not very crowded and I received great... More

Very poor service. Overrated. Staff was arrogant and looks down upon foreigners. Heard them joking about cheating customers.

Wow - this place is something else. Myself and a group of friends visited Wine Bar do Castelo three times during our trip around Portugal. The people who work here really know their wine and it's such great fun getting to try all the different kinds they have available. The cheese, meats and jams are so delicious. We could have... More

We visited on our way back down from a walk up to see the castle. The staff were friendly and a lot of wine was available. The waiter asked us what type of wine we wanted and what price. We thought 5 euros a glass would be reasonable. The wine was ok, shame about the amount that gets put in... More

I had a very nice visit here with a tour by Paolo of LisbonExplorer. The owners are friendly and knowledgeable. They demonstrated how the shape and size of the glass could change the taste of port and were so proud to show off the varieties they carry and share the background of each. The place was busy but the owners... More

The staff is qualified and friendly, it is sufficient to inform the waiter about your preferences, the price range and he will come to the table with few wines to taste in order to do the right choice. We also ordered a... More
