“Tram tour and tasting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

We visited for the tram tour. It was very popular and proved a great way to get out of the city centre for a short time, while enjoying some delicious wine and port wines. We had a little bit of cheese as well. The music was very entertaining.

“Great little place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

The concierge of the Intercontinental Hotel recommended us this little place, which is right around the corner. We started off by ordering a few tapas for a late afternoon snack but ended up staying there for two hours. Carlos, the owner, was very amicable and served different port wines with tapas and sweets all the while explaining to us the origins of the wines.
Everything is of highest quality and I especially loved the ham, But then came the famous chocolate cake which is heavenly!!
Carlos gave us some great insider tips about Porto and he and his collegue took the time to help me out with some flight booking troubles.
I also bought a beautiful Port wine for a quite reasonable price.
Much recommended!

“Changed our attitude about Port wine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

Our Hotel (Intercontinental) recommended this restaurant after asking us about our interests. Perfect choice. We have never liked Port wines but were looking for a place that would allow us a final tasting before giving up. We also wanted to eat more of a tapa or sampling of food rather than a full meal. Linha22 was the perfect choice. Carlos was very knowledgeable and patient with us. We tried a number of Ports and wines and had a sampling of Porto cuisine. We found that a few of the Ports from the smaller wineries were superior to any Ports we had ever had in the US. Carlos even stayed open late to help us (and sent us to see the incredible Lillo Library in between courses. Couldn't recommend this restaurant any stronger!

“Absolutely fantastic little place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014 via mobile

The owner is incredibly friendly and will teach you all about the processes of making Porto's famous wines as well as letting you taste them! Everything is of the highest quality, and the ham is particularly good.

“Enjoyable Wine Bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014

Cute little cafe' that we almost passed up in Porto. We are so glad we stopped in and met Carlos who taught us more about Port wine in a half hour than we every learn in the Port houses! He has a wonderful selection of local products Carlos also runs a Fado Tram tour that offers wine and cheese tastings in the Spring and Summer months. We will be back for the tour and chocolate cake the next time we are in Porto!
