We enjoyed our port flight with a platter of cheeses. The latter was very very generous. The flights come in a variety of choices so it is worth checking the list. A good way to taste and enjoy a variety of ports.

14 euro for a few slices of "cured" ham. Totally overpriced tourist scam! If you just want to drink water or a soft drink, this place is ok. Otherwise don't go here.

Absolutely great port wine tasting, they even leave the bottles out for a little bit so you can really see what you're tasting. Also very reasonable prices for the amount/quality of wine you get. Our server was absolutely lovely, super sweet, and spoke very good...More

We were wandering around gearing up for our first Port wine tasting and we were off the beaten path on a little side street when we saw a beautiful table and chairs set up with a tablecloth, and some glasses of port wine on it....More

Just stopped as fancied a beer but then saw the port tasting menu and for €6 you try 3 different ports. They explain about the different varieties and you get a very generous measure of each.
