This tapas bar/restaurant is very small (holding approx.20/25 guests at a sitting). Booking is only allowed when it opens @ 6.30 pm so you'll need to be prepared to sit at the bar and wait for a table. However it is worth it! The authentic Portuguese food is served tapas style and is delicious. It is prepared and served with... More

What a great little discovery, right in the heart of the Bairro Alto. We received a really warm welcome on both visits and given just the right amount of attention and advice/choice. They are very knowledgable about the wines and the pairings were perfect. It's tiny, which is lovely and so you need to book and they like to give... More

I took my husband to BA wines on the strength of reviews on here...and we weren't disappointed! I was a bit worried that the size and limited menu would be a minus, but the success of this bar lies in its focus on providing amazing wine with an amazing service. The waitress we had had the most superb knowledge of... More

This is a wonderful, unassuming little bar. The staff will ask you what kinds of wine you like and will bring some (4) for you to taste. You will learn a bit about each one and select your favorite- by the class so you can really try different things and not commit to a bottle. We did it with whites... More

Had an excellent night here, sampling and learning about Portguese wines. One of the highlights of our week in Portugal. Service is fantastic and wines are all served with cold cuts and cheese. Absolutely deserves the positive TA reviews.

Please note that this is NOT a restaurant. It is a wine bar where your host will ask you about what types of wines you enjoy, then bring you a variety of reds and whites to try. You can buy by the glass or bottle. They serve cheeses, meats, delicious bread, and olives. We had a wonderful time!

My wife booked this wonderful restaurant based on the reviews on trip advisor. We had high expectations and were not disappointed. We arrived earlier than our booking which worked out well as we had more time to talk to the staff about the wine selection. The staff were very generous with their time and advise. After sampling many different wines... More

My wife booked this as a surprise 50th birthday present because I'm a wine enthusiast. This place lived up to all the previous reviews and recommendations. The whole trip to Lisbon was based on a recommendation to visit this bar. As a real wine nut, I was not let down! Staff were knowledgeable, friendly and informative. The whole experience was...

Having read lovely things about this restaurant, i booked a table, what a great decision. We started with a wine tasting of sparkling wine, which were lovely, we then had bread and olive oils which were delicious. We then had a white tasting which again were different than our normal choice, but again very nice. Followed by a cheese and... More

More than 150 wines by the glass. Port wine flights. One of the best selections of portuguese cheeses, and charcuterie, combined in mixed boards. Handmade canned fish delights. Rare and old Port and Madeira wines collection, also by the glass.

Please note: this is a small and informal traditional wine bar with tapas of cheese and charcuterie that does NOT have any cooked meals; opens around 6pm and starts closing at 11pm, therefore the options breakfast/brunch and late night do not apply; closes on Mondays. Thank you.
