Actually went to this wine bar as it was about 100m from where we were staying, had a look on trip advisor and discovered it was highly rated. I have to say it deserves it. This is not some pop in for a 10 minute drop of wine, this is the real deal. I've read a couple reviews saying they... More

Just 10 minutes ago ie 20:45 h we went to this bar and even though there was a lot of space at the bar and one table was free we were told it was not possible. .whatever this means. Funnily we just read the last review which is exactly what we experienced. Obviously the bar makes enough money so they... More

Dear Sir or Madam, We would like to refute your review in the following terms: Because we had a full house and were expecting a group who had made a reservation for a wine tasting, how could we accomodate any more guests? This is common sense, we believe. We want to welcome all our guests with optimal confort and do... More

We made a reservation after reading reviews on TripAdvisor and it was well worth it. The staff talk to you about what wine you like, then bring you a few to taste. Then you decide what to drink. It was good for a lighter lunch option - cheese, meats and bread. Do book - as there are not many tables... More

This was our second trip to Lisbon, and we seeked this place out again. Very knowledgeable staff, great for a very light snack instead of dinner plus education on Portuguese wines. Try to stop by earlier in the day to make a reservation. It's worth it, and prices are good.

I stopped by here for a glas of wine, and ended up spending more than an hour discussing wine with the waiters, who proved to be very knowledgeable and friendly (one of them worked on and off in different vineyards, and really knew his wines). It is a superb place with excellent wines. I will most definitely come back.

We visited with friends by chance as we were passing. The staff were very attentive and knowledgeable about all the products. We enjoyed the wine/Port/olive oil/meats/cheese tasting!! Fantastic place to visit, highly recommended.

A very nice small bar in the historical part of Lisbon, hidden in the labyrinth of narrow winding streets close to the walls of Castelo de Sao Jorge. There are only a few tables, and you need to book one in advance if you want a seat. The bar officially closes at 10 p.m. (though of course they work until... More
