This is little place is a gem. It's the kind of place that reminds you of the superiority of Portuguese produce from the land and makes you fall in love with them again and again. The owner, Nuno, is an wonderful host and highly knowledgeable about his wines. Definitely will be back next time!

we stopped in the afternoon after the visit of the castle, we asked for two glasses of Porto wine, the price of 6 euros it's a little high but it worths it. The problem is that the owner wanted to show his competence and remark our ignorance about the Porto wine. And immediately after talked with other clients saying "you... More

I first visited this wine bar in 2012 and had such a marvelous experience that I had to bring my husband and friends during our latest trip. This is the best wine bar experience I've ever had. Diogo was our server, and he was outstanding in every way. He asked us what kinds of wines and ports we usually drink,... More

We found this place while wandering back to our airbnb near St. George's castle. We'd just done dinner and Fado music, and this location was a perfect night cap (although the menu could have provided dinner on its own). The host was very knowledgeable about the wines and regions of Portugal and helped us try bottles we would never have... More

This is a fantastic place to sample different wines from all over Portugal. The owners were there and spent a great deal of time explaining the different wines and allowing us to sample several different ones before buying a glass. Would highly recommend!

We dropped in -4 of us- all looking for different things .. rose, light red, oaky white and bone dry white. This led to a brief tasting and great choices. Delicious charcuterie. Enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff. It is a great place to go for pleasure and education!

We took a group for a wine tasting and had a wonderful experience, the wines were excellent, everything was explained by our host. The cheese and meat selection went well with the wines, the cheeses especially showed a great range of local produce. All in all we had a great experience

I'm not a wine-expert but still didn't feel embarrassed at this place to taste several different and amazing wines from different regions in Portugal. We had some light snacks (sausage, ham, olives, cheese, jam and bread) with the wines. Charming place with excellent selection of wines, definitely recommended to visit.

Staying in Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria

Neighbourhood Profile
Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria
Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and, of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music. The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755 destroyed most of the city but the contiguous neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of Fado, where you'll discover the best "tascas," eat delicious fresh fish and drink great wines. Discover hidden viewpoints and ancient traces of other civilizational ruins in the heart of the Portuguese capital. These are centuries-old neighborhoods that will welcome you to the very best of old Lisbon culture.
