I've worked in the wine industry for most of my working life and I can honestly say I've never come across an establishment which offered service so poor and an environment so hostile in which to discover new wines. Visiting Lisbon with friends for a...More

The waiters are not overly friendly but polite. The setting is indeed old but I personally loved it. There's a huge amount of porto's to choose from and the combination with cheese is delicious. It was perfect to end the day quietly, before going back...More

The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally,
"squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers
plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can
stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its
streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and
viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the
famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa,
