Lovely experience for savoring and learning about wine

This is a fantastic wine bar experience - the waitstaff is knowledgable, passionate and patient. You try a few wines based on your preferences before going for a full glass and get a whole education along the way. Definitely make reservations if you are coming in past 7 or so.

We visited as a group of friends with only one of us having experience of wine tasting before. The staff were really knowledgeable and friendly. One of our best nights out. Definitely book a table as lots of people were getting turned away. The cheese board was fab so highly recommend that.

We stumbled upon this place by coincidence. The place has a wide variety of wine which is explained in great detail by the friendly hosts. If you like wine this place is a must visit!

This wine bar is unique in the way they offer wine by region and price, food is limited as is space but that never comes to mind when you enter from just below the Castello. Outstanding atmosphere and a place to not miss on your trip to Lisbon.

This place is super; charming and knowledgable staff and definitively worth a visit. The ham and cheese on offer is fantastic and no pretension whatsoever!

We were in Lisbon for a day on a cruise. Our friend found this originally on trip advisor so we checked it out. We were asked by the waiter/manager what kind of wines we liked which were varied. He then brought out 5 different wines for us to try. They were all wonderful but we picked our favourite and ended... More

My fiance and I dropped to experience some Portuguese wine while visiting Lisbon on Valentine's weekend. We booked a table upfront (pretty easy online booking via BestTables). If you plan visiting, we would defo recommend booking upfront as the place is not big and places are limited in order to offer the best experience to customers. Regarding our experience: The...

Called in for a glass of wine after visiting the castle and stayed for 2 hours! Great wines which you can sample and fantastic food, you have to try the plate with cheeses, hams and sausage, best we've had in Portugal. The proprietor is so knowledgeable and passionate about Portuguese, wine and food, every sip and bite is and education.... More
