Must-do !

Typical cherry liquor served in a small plastic glass for 1,4 euros. I am not a great fan of the drink to be honest but it is still a place to stop.

I will go again to Lisbon next week, and the first walk begin in Ginjinha. I love it. This place is the substance of the city, what I love.

The Ginja tasted ok- not our favourite but OK. The cherries tasted awful- really bitter, my wife said I've never pulled a face like that! Worth a try- clearly an historic place- but I would skip eating the cherries here (they tasted delicious when we tried them in ginja elsewhere).

We were nearby leaving a restaurant, and saw a huge line of people lined up for port. There is some really cool history behind this place that I cannot remember, but the port was out of this world. Nowhere to sit or anything, just a counter with hundreds of bottles of their port..a nice stop for after dinner for some... More

Two little bars near Rossio square. One tucked in a side street and the other close by. We tried both the one in the side street make it on the premise and has the edge on the other one. Rick Stein, Antony Bourdain have both featured the A Ginjinha on their TV shows.Don't be put off by the people outside,... More

Reminded me of taking cold medicine, but still worth going by to drink a traditional drink. It was and fun and cheap was to feel like a local for a few minutes

Everyone visiting Lisbon would have been told to try the Ginja or sweet cherry/berry wine. This is served as dessert wine in restaurants, or simply drunk at bars but here in front of the Igreja Sao Domingos (St Domingos) church is the first stand alone Ginja bar or shop I have come across. It is practically a "hole in the... More

It would be a sin not to try the sour cherry liquor, ginjinha, while in Lisbon, and this is the perfect place to do it. Right off of Rossio, this little hole in the wall serves up shots of ginjinha (for just €1.40) which you can enjoy outside on the street and then return your glass. I loved that there... More

A sort of hole in the wall serving the traditional Ginjinha at 1.40 euros. Something to try once if you are in Lisbon.

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighborhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
