The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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"!
How to get there

Although you can find cherry liquor all over Portugal, this one by the Rossio square counts into the oldest and most famous ones.
It's a small shop where you'll see queues (go very fast) for that famous cherry. You get it in a shot glass (1,50 Eur) and drink it right on the square in front, no tables or chairs.
TIP: do visit the amazing next door Dominic Church (see that review).

The treat the driver promised was for real excellent. We had a chocolate cup filled with Ginjinja and an infused sour cherry. It was really special on a rainy, cold day. The old part of the city is quaint and would have been a lot of fun in the sun.

I had seen Rick Steves in one of his Lisbon videos going here and I simply loved this tradition. 'A Ginjinha' is a tiny bar opened in 1840, next to Rossio Square. They serve 'Ginja' which is a local favourite sweet cherry liqueur served as a shot. A shot of Ginja costs €1.20, we tried it and liked the taste and experience. When in Lisbon definitely worth going here and trying it.

For someone who doesn't like cherry, the cherry liqueur was surprisingly very nice! Best way to enjoy is to have it mid-day in the sunshine. Centrally located so an easy quick stop. Sadly no chocolate cups to have with it though.

It was great fun to stop on the street with others and drink some ginjinha. It really warmed me up. I tried it in other places (indoors) in Lisboa, but none seemed to be as delicious (or as good of a time) as the quick stop at A Ginjinha. Also, a great souvenir was to buy a couple bottles of ginjinha at duty free in the airport.

A 23% alcohol shot of sherry liquor at 9:30am while being jet lagged... You damn right it gets a 5-star review.

My partner and I visited while staying close by , we watched the great no reservations program. Staff lovely, friendly atmosphere ( we had another one close to our hotel and it seemed sketchy, full of homeless locals) this one is definitely a nicer environment. Gorgeous cherry 🍒 liquor.

Move along, folks! Nothing really happening here. I mean, it's not the best but I guess word has gone around that it's something to try while in Lisbon, ergo, the line in front. Not particularly impressive but for a buck and a quarter, why not give it a go?

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).
