“Great place to try port in a relaxed and low key atmosphere”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

Found this place after buying tinned sardines opposite. Good choice of wine and port (we had both!) and unlike other reviewers we really enjoyed as we knew from experience the price of bottles of port in Lisbon. Service was good, not the usual haphazard service we got used to in Lisbon and there were only 4 in the bar, very quiet all night. Go for a few drinks but don't buy full bottles which range from 30 - 300+ euros.

“Friendly service, great port”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

I've visited the Porto Wine Bar (with a fellow port lover) on three separate occasions. Each time we have been served by Carlos who has selected fantastic ports and has been generous with the measures and the information he has provided about the wine. We've tasted ports that we would have struggled to find elsewhere in Lisbon. Carlos also provided us with restuarant recommendations (which were all great) and told us where to visit in Sintra. The port prices are all displayed so we knew exactly what we would be paying. Having enjoyed three visits, I'm looking forward to my nextport tipple when next in Lisbon.

“A little gem in the heart of old Lisbon”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

This is the place where locals go for lunch in the Baixa. It's not fancy, you sit by the bar and the food is genuine home cooked Portuguese cuisine.
You are served by friendly Nuno who can talk to the customers in many languages and he'll explain exactly what the dishes are if you are not sure.
All this washed down with a beer,wine or freshly squeezed fruit juice.
We always make sure we eat at Tabuas whenever we visit Lisbon

“Wooouuuu....you must enter in”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

We found this place accidentally, we enter in a space with a hundreds of wine botle...and we spend about two hours inside and enjoyed. Young man who worked (I don't know if he is the owner) spend a lot of time with us, talking about wine region in Portugal, he explain us the best selection of wine, on big LCD was some nice fado music and we asked him to show us which DVD is on, and he show on map where we can buy that DVD. We went sleep, next day we went 4 days on Madeira, and after that we came back in Lisbon and again in this wine bar, and again same young man worked here. Very nice place to enjoy in portugese wine, good atmosphere, helpfull people...everything...

“Nice wine and friendly owner”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

We happened to pass by Porto in the morning while we were wandering around Lisbon. It was too early for wine so we came back in the evening. The vinho verde was very refreshing and the grilled Chorizo delicious. And the owner working behind the bar was very friendly even giving us a little top up of our wine so we had something to finish our Chorizo with. It's a no frills place that's just about the wine but it was a very nice place to spend the evening.
