“Great post dinner post”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013 via mobile

We stopped hear almost by accident for a drink after dinner, Werner with great service, amazing wine list and a opportunity to try some different Portuguese wines and ports in a relaxed space. When we arrived the place was quite busy, and for a Monday night in Lisbon this says something - would definitely suggest this for a post dinner drink one evening.

“Excellent wine bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

We stopped here for pre-dinner drinks 3 times during a 4 night stay which must say something. It is an attractive, grown up wine bar with a nice atmosphere and helpful, unpushy staff who guided us through their extensive local wine list. Can't comment on the food as we didn't try it, but the wine & service were excellent.

“Fantastic wine selection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

Great selection of wines, would not recommend for dinner, but nice for a great glass of wine, good recommendations, and good value. If you like fado, you will enjoy the music as well.

“Great wine, food could be better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

Came back after some months, and witnessed great improvement. Great wines, all the one I asked were available, great value (other wine bars around charge 30-50% more for same wine), staff is nice yet reserved. Non-smoking, a plus for a Lisbon wine bar. Food could improve, but its more a after dinner place anyway.

“Novelty value, but not that great”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

The building that houses this restaurant is impressive, but the service was awful! We had a variety of tapas for lunch, all of which were tasty but very small portions. The waiter was unfriendly and we waited an age for the bill. The surroundings give the place novelty value, but it smelled a little 'chemically' and wasn't inviting or comfortable. Wouldn't go back.
