We went here to taste port wines. The place was recommended to us by another restaurateur who said we could taste good port wines there. The guy who introduced us to port wines, Rúben, was phenomenal. It seemed that he knew all there was to know about port wines. He took us an a journey (I am not exaggerating, I... More

We ordered a mixed meat and cheese platter which was delicious, our waiter was very helpful and recommended a very reasonable but excellent bottle of wine which paired fantastically with our...

Wine lovers heaven !! One of my favourites places in Lisbon. Plenty of wine choices , in fact you need to walk in with a rough idea of your wine choice or you can get lost in the menu. Lovely food and great customer service. Sometimes life music to serenade you. Highly recommend it.

We were looking for a local tapas place. All the guide books recommend this place and we guess therefore it kind of lost its way. We had the mussels in tomato sauce and the chicken sausage with fries and a glass of Douro. The Mussels were okay but the chicken sausage and fries were dreadfully untasteful. For €35 it was...

We had a 24 hour layover in Lisbon and decided to try this restaurant. Thank goodness we did... we had the sangria, the cheese and sausage tapas, chicken sausage, tuna, codfish along with 3 deserts... everything was out of this world delicious! This place is a must for anyone visiting or passing through Lisbon.

Description
Located in the heart of Lisbon, in a mandatory visit neighborhood as the Bairro Alto, just a few meters away from Chiado, you find in this Wine House a committed team in a relaxed, family atmosphere, accompanied by live music that animates every night. Between the passion for wines of Antonio Baeta and the passion for cuisine of Silvia Mendes, we get the alchemical mixture of two key ingredients that make the success of this house. On the one hand, more than 1000 national references between white, red, green, sparkling and fortified wine, where the vast majority can be tasted by glass, or even taken home bottled, on the other hand, a continuous search for the best Portuguese delicacies turned into simple dishes, but with great flavor, from cheese and sausages boards with homemade jams, to mussels or scallops gratinated, seared canned tuna, or even cod or octopus in the oven. Upstairs this XVIII century building, fully redone, you can find a room for the night in a cozy environment. Six bedrooms, some with private bathroom, a mixed dormitory, a common living room, a common kitchen where breakfasts are served or where you can cook your own food and an outdoor patio, make of this Hostel a selected place for those who like to enjoy the night of Bairro Alto, and want to stick around. Enjoy every moment of the two spaces in a relaxed way and with quality. Wine House Open every day from 12h00 to 24h00.
