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.

“Make sure you go here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012 via mobile

Just home from a great night at BA. Service was great and the owner is very knowledgable and clearly loves his business. He managed to select just the right wines for us, we ate a mixed ham and cheese platter which was great and the ports we had at the end were superb. Thoroughly recommend, but get here before 9 as it is clearly a very popular choice. I didnt think that cheese, ham and some wine would be enough to last the whole evening but it was. This place is a little gem and well worthy of its ranking on TA. Cost was 60euros for 6 glasses of wine, olive oil tasting, meats and cheeses and numerous free tasters that came our way. Outstanding evening!

“A wine tour of Portugal at your table”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

What a fantastic experience for tasting the best of Portuguese wines. Rui was an absolute mine of information and facts on his incredible stock of wines. We thought we knew a few things about wine, but this was absolutely fascinating. We would have stayed later had we not been so jet lagged. Try the tasting plate of black pig ham and local cheeses - sublime with the wine. We'll be back for more next time we're in Lisbon.

“Great experience for wine lovers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

In BA wine bar in addition to drinking good Portuguese wines (big surprises) and savor Portuguese gourmet products, is the friendliness and dedication accompanied by a culture and history about the wines, grapes, manufacture and demarcated wine regions. Did you know that the oldest demarcated wine region is Portuguese? Rui Rossa tells you many stories and trivia about Portuguese wines. Congratulations Rui. We loved.

“The best wine, the best service, the best evening...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

Please visit this wine bar - we'll make sure to come back the next time we visit Lisboa. We had a very special and wonderful evening - all our best recommendations for this place. The wine was wonderful - and the service fantastic. We tasted many fine wines - served with delicious cheese and meat - and stories. Thank you very much, BA. All our best wishes for you. Kind regards, T. and T./Denmark.
