Found this place by chance after walking down from Castelo São Jorge. A great little tapas bar with a quirky, hipster vibe to it. The food we had was good and was washed down by a couple of jugs of the surprisingly good Portuguese house red. The waitress was really friendly and even helped us out with our less-than-brilliant portuguese! All in all a great spot for a drink and a few tapas under candlelight!

We came upon this bar by chance and found it so charming that we decided to enter. We had two glasses of Portuguese wine which was so bad it gave you heartburn after just one sip. It came with a free tapa - a piece of bread with smoked ham that smelled very suspicious. Despite the cute decoration, the place lacked something..

Agardecemos a sua opinião,
mas achamos que uma vez que não teve efectivamente uma real experiência com a nossa cozinha, nem com nossas porções ou as nossas tapas.
Não deveria classificar a nossa comida, uma vez que foi algo que não experimentou.
Convidamo-la a vir experimentar a nossa cozinha de azeite, pois acreditamos que depois desta experiência gastronomica mudará a sua opinião.
O tapas do além tejo não oferece tapas, informação que não está correcta.
Oferecemos em determinadas promoções pintxos ou montaditos(tipo bruxeta) para acompanhar o vinho a copo.
Os nossos pintxos são condimentados com pasta de azeitona ou molho pesto, o que pode ser um sabor um pouco forte para algumas pessoas e desconhecido para outras.
Em relação ao nosso vinho, penso que o Tapas do além tejo nada tem a comentar, já existem comentarios bastante positivos em outras experiências.
Até Breve.

This a very nice restaurant, with a good decoration and atmosphere. Where you could have nice and very good Petiscos from Portugal.
This restaurant is located near the S.Jorge Castle, and is a nice place to take a meal before our after visit the Castle.

In the nice neighborhood of Muraria, close to the S.Jorge Castle, there is a small nice restaurant of tapas (in Portugal they would say petiscos). Rute and his boyfriend run with great enthusiasm this multipurpose space. They created in the middle of the crisis (just a year ago) a restaurant and a meeting point for creative people (painting exhibitions and aircraft selling..) promoting Portugal and its genuine products in an "emerging neighborhood" . The atmosphere is great and the service superb, including the advices Rute is willing to give, food more sophisticated than an average Portuguese restaurants, and prices are fair. Excellent wine of the house! Perfect for a young couple first date and with few friends.On thursday night fado can be arranged if booked previously.. DON'T MISS IT!
