“Great Location”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

We went to this Bar and followed the recommendations by Tripadvisor and everything became true:

Moses: Keep on rollin' - We had two very nice evenings, nice conversations AND very good wine and Tapas. Great Location, very relaxing!

“Excellent wines, brilliant views of river and bridge”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Just 15 metres from the river, with great views of the bridge, especially in nice weather when you can sit out on the raised pavement ever the Ribeira. There are some delicious and interesting wines from some top names - Filipa Pato, Rui Cunha, Po de Poeira, Quinta dos Termos, 'wine flights' if you want eg 3 glasses of 'mineral wines' or 'intense and complex reds'. Wine prices are very reasonable. The charcuterie is porco preto - really excellent, cheeses good too. Yes, limited food but very good. Inside the little fisherman's cottage is modern, black stools, benches, low tables, glass bar, expose granite walls.

“Fantastic drinking spot with gorgeous view and charming owner”
Reviewed November 6, 2012 via mobile

My dad and I came here twice over a period of three days in Porto having seen this place soar to the top of the list on trip advisor as the best restaurant in Porto.  This is both fair and unfair.  A major failing of this site is that it does not have a spectrum of "Eat" options and I would not say this place is a "stay" or a "see" (although the view at night is fantastic here).  

This is a wine bar put very simply.  Its narrow interior nests above the pedestrian area below before the Duoro river with an uninterrupted view of port houses, restaurants, boats and Ponte I.  The owner speaks very good English and is very hospitable taking time to talk to his guests, sharing information about the wine, port, the area, anecdotes about his life and getting to know people who come through the door.  The drink is also VERY REASONABLY PRICED and there is a wide fantastic selection of Portuguese wine and port on offer (as expected).  He is also a good source of information of restaurants in the area and places to go.  

We did not eat here as we used it just as a place to drink after a long day walking or somewhere to have a pre dinner drink.  Given its size, it can fill up quickly and I suspect that it must be very popular during the peak tourist season.  

If I come back to Porto I would happily come back here again for the setting, the booze, the affable owner and to build on my knowledge of Portuguese wine/port.  A very safe bet.

“For wine lovers”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

This is a superb location in Porto with a beautiful view to the Douro river. They serve large variety of Portuguese wines from Alentejo to Douro. You also have Ports if you are interested in those. A definitive choice for wine lovers. I noticed particularly that the staff was really experienced in suggesting the wines. They'll find a good wine for you, no matter what your wine skills are.

We found this wine bar really nice, because it offered a possibility to taste different Portuguese wines by the glass without having to buy the whole bottle. The first night, we skipped the dinner, because they offered such an excellent bread, ham and cheese. So we were more than content and decided to go there again next day. The staff there are super nice and relaxed, so you really feel welcomed. They also gave us excellent hints for the places to eat in Porto.
