Lovely dinner with a whole mix of tapas...enjoyed the owner’s recommendations including “green wine” (a slightly acidic kind of white wine). Was a nice change of pace from the heavier meals we’ve been having (and enjoying) during a week in Lisbon.

We had dinner at Banca de Pau and enjoyed the food, wine and service so much. Sergio gave us very good wine/food recommendations and took his time to explain everything. I recommend to pre-book your table for Dinner.

Depends on how early you go. We had a reservation (luckily) and it was quite busy. It was round 7ish when we went.
