Very nice small and cozy place with friendly staff and lots of Portugese wine to taste. Only downside is that they don't have a food menu. Would recommend going there.

A great hideaway for wine lovers, with friendly, expert advice on Portugese wines on hand. Lovely tapas too, although priced more highly than some, given its great location.

We came across this beside the castle. Sardines, tomato, bread and olive oil was the pick of our two dishes. I also got duck rice which was very nice but go for the sardines!
