Located in the heart of Lisbon, in a mandatory visit neighborhood as the Bairro Alto, just a few meters away from Chiado, you find in this Wine House a committed team in a relaxed, family atmosphere, accompanied by live music that animates every night. Between the passion for wines of Antonio Baeta and the passion for cuisine of Silvia Mendes, we get the alchemical mixture of two key ingredients that make the success of this house. On the one hand, more than 1000 national references between white, red, green, sparkling and fortified wine, where the vast majority can be tasted by glass, or even taken home bottled, on the other hand, a continuous search for the best Portuguese delicacies turned into simple dishes, but with great flavor, from cheese and sausages boards with homemade jams, to mussels or scallops gratinated, seared canned tuna, or even cod or octopus in the oven. Upstairs this XVIII century building, fully redone, you can find a room for the night in a cozy environment. Six bedrooms, some with private bathroom, a mixed dormitory, a common living room, a common kitchen where breakfasts are served or where you can cook your own food and an outdoor patio, make of this Hostel a selected place for those who like to enjoy the night of Bairro Alto, and want to stick around. Enjoy every moment of the two spaces in a relaxed way and with quality. Wine House Open every day from 12h00 to 24h00.

Delicious Food & Delightful Entertainment

We ate here on the last night of our vacation--one of our favorite meals! The food was on-par with a long wine list, and the music was such fun. The whole restaurant ended up singing along. A great experience!

Went in the afternoon for drinks. The staff are friendly and helpful and offer their knowledge on wines. The selection of over 650 is vast. A cosy place with barrel tables filled with local ports to the side of the main dining area and walls lined by row upon row of different wines. Having enjoyed the atmosphere we decided to... More

We found this place on our first nite in Lisbon and went back for our last. Great live music while we dined - the guitarist had the whole place singing! An absolutely delicious meal both times.

I went here on a recommendation from a family friend and was not disappointed. The restaurant is small and ambient but can pack a lot of people in it. Thankfully we arrived at a quieter time (around 7.30) so we managed to get a proper table. There was a lot of staff who were very attentive in the beginning, however,... More

This place has a very comfortable atmosphere, hiden behind the main street with lovely staff. The waiter ordered for us and also let us try a few wines before selecting one. Its was 37 euro for a plate and 2 wines which is a bit more than expected but worth it.

We attended with a private guide, but the ambiance and selection of ports by the glass was excellent. Ricardo was attentive server. Live music was played (on a Sunday night). Great atmosphere, look forward to returning.

Unreal experience. Music was the best entertainment during a meal we had on our entire 9 week Euro trip. The food was incredible. I would recommend the surprise tapas and the plate of their finest meats and cheeses. Bottles of wine were reasonable and very good. It was crowded but with good reason. I cant miss if in Lisbon.
