We visited here after seeing the recommendations on trip advisor and we were not disappointed! The service was outstanding, the atmosphere was lovely and the food was to die for!! We ordered the surprise menu which consisted of 10 tasters, all of which were delicious. Highly recommended and would go back here in a heart beat!

Great atmosphere, large tables and barrels to sit around, friendly and competent staff, large selection of wines and portos and good on top. We really appreciated the suggestions from the waiter.Price is according to the wine chosen. A bit expensive for Portugal but it's worth it. A very good evening.

What a fantastic wine bar this is in the centre of the Barrio Alto region of Lisbon! We had read about this bar before we arrived in Lisbon and, as we didn't land until late in the afternoon on a Thursday, we decided to head here for the first night. From that point onwards, we were hooked by the brilliant... More

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.
