We reserved a table here after all the great reviews on trip advisor and so glad we did! This place is so different from all the typical tourist spots in Libson serving the usual sandwiches and salads from those plastic menus... You don't go here looking for a slap up meal - you go here to sample some Portuguese wines... More

We visited this wonderful wine bar last night. It was busy but the owners were so kind as to arrange a table 20 mins later. When we arrived, we were ushered to our table. We weren't sure of what wines to drink but the owners allowed us to taste four wines before choosing. The owners' knowledge of wine is encyclopedic... More

My best idea ever was to order the port flight here. We lucked out by getting the one server that spoke English and she took us on an amazing adventure explaining the differences in port wine. Who knew it came from Portugal? ;-) She also prepared a sweet treat plate for us to taste with our port.

We went there last Wednesday and Thursday. On Wednesday only had time for a glass of wine before dinner, but liked it so much we booked for Thursday night. The place is a must go for people interested in wine. They take great pride in finding good quality Portuguese wines that suit you taste. You give them a bit of... More

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

Very unfriendly owner who really looks down upon his customers. They serve various wines and curated meats and cheeses. Nothing special as there are many unbelievable good restaurants in Lisbon. Portugal is a culinary affordable delight ranging from traditional to more modern prepared food. Don't waste your time as this place if for tourists!

The expertise of the staff combined with the wine and food offered made this the highlight of Lisbon. The owner made us feel welcome and made tremendous suggestions. We only had 90 minutes there bet next time I'll carve out at least 3 hours.

What an amazing treasure for Lisbon. Booked for my partner's birthday as a surprise (he is not a great wine drinker). The atmosphere was charming, the food was amazing, the wine was perfect (even had my partner hooked) but the real icing on the cake was the expertise of those working there and their knowledge of all produce from Portugal....

This is a winebar and not really a restaurant. Don't get me wrong, they have some wonderful cold dishes and cheese, the tapas style. The people working there are very kind and helpful and they do know their portuguese wines. You'll be safe in their hands. If you can't decide between two (or more) wines? Don't worry, they let you... More

The staff tries to create a cozy hangout that feels more like a coffee shop than a restaurant. Our waiter was incredibly helpful and gave some great recommendations for sampling all that Portuguese wine & cheese have to offer. They gave us the whole evening with them. We saw the staff turn away several parties looking for tables - a... More
