We were tonight, first of all someone put wrong location of bar on trip advisor do we almost didnt find it. Forget "navigate me" function. The bar is small (6 tables). The vines, food and staff were good. But at the end of dinner, we got not regular bill, only with numbers and corected by hand. Every item raised: chesse... More

BA is indeed a very small place and we know exactly who was here last night, table by table. About the location: some say wrong, but other devices show right. The "someone" is not us. Anyway, in such a short street, with the door number on the internet, it shouldn't be a problem, should it? Still, this issue was already... More

Extremely impressive wine collection. A very good place to kill hours together friends with a helpful staff with an excellent knowledge of Portuguese wine. Book in advance as the BA has few tables.

Thank you to the owners of this wonderful restaurant for having welcomed us so warmly! The premises are small but welcoming and you feel directly at home, thanks to the kindness of the owners (and like all Portuguese people in general!). This restaurant is located in a small street of the most living nightlife area of Lisbon which is also... More

BA wine bar is a small gem in Bairro Alto district. It is hardly noticeable from outside and rather small in size but highly generous when it comes to Portuguese wine selection and hospitality. We were supposed to dine there however because our flight was delayed for almost 2 hours we were able to arrive around 11 pm. Nevertheless Daniel... More

I'm not sure to review this as a restaurant or an attraction, it's a theme park for wine lovers with some excellent charcuterie and cheese to accompany the great wines. This is a small place and you must book ahead, we saw many people turned away at the door. The staff are very well trained and hugely helpful in working... More

I emailed the restaurant on a Tuesday trying to make reservations and they were booked through Friday so make reservations way in advanced. They emailed me back Tuesday night and said they had a cancellation and they saved the table for 20 minutes until we arrived. I was so lucky in that it was everything everyone has already said. As...

Had a wonderful evening last week at BA wine Bar. On entering, the clinical look of white walls, polished tables and counter at the back might put you off but as soon as you are greeted, this is forgotten. Food is simple, cured hams, cheeses and chorizo but they are all from artisan suppliers, however it is the wine and... More

If you want to find out about Portuguese wine from people who really know what they are talking about then this is the place for you. The cheese, fish and charcuterie are absolutely delicious and match the wine perfectly too. We can't recommend this place highly enough.

This is a very special place, with very special people. Do not expect a full meal, as they have limited small plates. That said, the wonderful assortments of cheeses, meats and sardines accompany their vast selection of Portuguese wine perfectly. Rui and his team make you feel very special, and let you taste as much wine as you need to... More
