It was great fun to stop on the street with others and drink some ginjinha. It really warmed me up. I tried it in other places (indoors) in Lisboa, but none seemed to be as delicious (or as good of a time) as the quick...More

The Ginja tasted ok- not our favourite but OK. The cherries tasted awful- really bitter, my wife said I've never pulled a face like that! Worth a try- clearly an historic place- but I would skip eating the cherries here (they tasted delicious when we...More

We always stop in on our visits to Lisbon, just like the many others that live in Lisbon do on a daily basis and have a Ginjinha (with or without) the cherry in the glass.

This shop was the first to commercialized the sale of the drink hence it is worth a visit! Have a shot of Ginjinha anytime of the day. We actually had one at 10 am during our walking tour. Not bad! The place is small. Get...More

Recommended by the tv cook Anthony Bourdain who recently passed away unfortunately. Any recommendations from him are worth a try and when you’re in for something sweet and alcoholic this is the right stop before you climb one of the hills in Lissabon.

This tucked away gem is a must. A great little view into a Lisbon treat. The cherry liquor is tasty and the cherry at the bottom of your cup is more spicy than sour.

This is a must do in Lisbon! A cherry brandy at any time of day stood on the beautiful square! This place makes its own much nicer than the copies!

Read about this place on a website that I used to help me plan our holiday. It's great; a small kiosk dedicated to the sale of a locally made cherry brandy. For €1.40 a shot, you can't go wrong. I waited just a few minutes...More

Perfect place (very near Rossio square) to buy a bottle or a small glass of tasty Lizbon's famous cherry liqueur.

A place that you must visit and try a cherry liqueur. One glass is not enough. And if you get our hands dirty while eating cherries from the glass, you can use the sink, which is located in the shop.

VERY long line (popular with both tourists and locals) but overall good. Apparently it's pretty famous.

A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,
Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply
"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake
construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755
earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the
