Description: 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.

“Let Rui be your guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

Had an amazing experience here 2 out of my 3 nights in Lisbon - Rui and his staff gave me a great tour of Portuguese wines. Definitely make a res as the space is tiny but this is one of the best wine / cheese experiences I have ever had. Believe the ratings - this place is the real deal.

“A very personal experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

We walked in to this unassuming room with 5 tables and wondered why it was ranked the number 1 place to eat in Lisbon. We even considered making a speedy escape, but the owner welcomed us, we sat down and before long we were swept away on a magical tour or the Portuguese vineyards.

We sampled 12 wines between us. The sommelier told us the story of each, masterfully guiding us through grape combinations, soil acidity etc. going into as much or as little complexity as we liked. By the time we reached the final bottle we were practically experts, slightly tipsy and most definitely happy that we stayed.

The meat and cheese platter was a perfect accompaniment to the wines.

It is clear that the owner and the sommelier have a deep passion for what they do and they share it with every person individually. It's a wonderfully intimate way to learn about wine and enjoy a long evening.

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

The waitress asked what type of wine we liked, then made recommendations for tasting based on our preferences. She was spot on and we both bought a few bottles to take home. Also had a remarkable cheese platter with pumpkin jam. Must make a reservation, as very small.
