Firstly this is a beautiful Port bar. And it's the ideal place to be introduced to Port for the first time.

The staff are all experts and passionate about what they do. Tastings of various ports are available with expert info on the subtle differences. And in so many different languages.

It's a little more expensive naturally than bars off the main strip but you are paying for location, setting and expertise.

Highly recommended

We had a few-hour layover in Porto, so we took a taxi into town for lunch and a port tasting.
When we arrived at Portologia, we only had 30 minutes remaining before we had to return to the airport, but Dominic kindly offered us a rapid tasting.
Somehow he managed to fit in a moderately in-depth explanation of the different types of port, and we were able to sample 4 different styles, each matched with the perfect piece of chocolate.
Dominic was engaging, funny, informative and kind. I wish we had more time to spend learning from him.

We weren't blown away by the ports on offer for the tasting we had, but it was nice to try some smaller suppliers. Best of all was the service - very friendly and informative, and the tasting never felt rushed. Definitely worth a visit.

This is a great place to try some port served by experts. There is a huge selection to try and the staff will walk you through all of them. Great place to spend an hour or so and get to know all about port.
