I thought I had already posted a review on TA, but I think I must have only told my friends in person. BA Wine Bar is a phenomenal experience. They have a great staff and a great selection and will guide you through the wines (and ports) of Portugal. It's a small spot so call ahead and book a reservation.

I can't say enough about this place - it is simply perfect. Worth every step of the climb up to it, located in a very cool part of the city and it more than lives up to its reputation as one of the best restaurants in Europe. The selection of wines is unparalleled, the meat and cheese were the best... More

A guided table top wine tasting tour brought us to this local gem. Lovely plates and expert sommeliers made for a perfect evening. An excellent way to discover Portuguese wines!

We really liked the wines and the food. We had a small cheese platter and it was really delicious. It was a bit too busy which made that the waitress didn't really have time for us. She referred us to the shop where we could buy the cheeses but the shop didn't sell the cheeses. The wines are also pretty... More

This wine bar is located in Bairro Alto where hundreds of bars and restaurants are, we were not sure if we have reached the right location as the entrance was quiet. The two sommeliers were very very knowledgable about Portuguese wine and olive oil, they are also good "mind readers" that helped us to find most suitable wine for our... More

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

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.
