I will echo all of the reviews - BA Wine Bar is a perfect, intimate wine bar and a nice break from the chaos of Bairro Alto. It's usually fully reserved, so either reserve ahead or, as we did, show up right at 6 and sit at one of the tables before the reservation shows up (though you may often... More

It is a great option to have some Portuguese wine and cheese. The staff is awesome. Really friendly and helpful. They make great recommendations. Make sure you have a reservation because the restaurant is really small.

Such a lovely little place in the heart of Bairro Alto. The staff are just brilliant, Very kind and knowledgable.

Can also recommended the platter with an assortment of cheese, meat, bread, olive oil and different jams. Visit... More

The lovely part about this bar is that you have a wide breadth of Portuguese wine available to you and they're more than happy to basically give you as many tastings as you'd like and explain all about the wine. Same for the cheese, olive oils, and meats. An awesome, wide range of offerings so you'll get to discover quickly!

Place to enjoy wines - first of all, place to be mesmerized by service telling you stories about wines. And then it's coming to food which is not much to have but very selected to go with wines. Place to come again and again

Small wine bar specialising in wines, cheeses and cold meats. Their knowledge of the produce they sell is phenomenal and led to a wonderful evening. You do need to book as it is extremely popular.

Lovely evening with great wine and food. Although not a restaurant as such, the plates of ham and cheese are superb and even the small plates are generous. Staff are very knowledgeable and attentive. We booked for 630 on a Saturday and were the second table in. By 730 it was full. Go, you won't be disappointed (unless you don't... More

Description
More than 150 wines by the glass. Port wine flights. One of the best selections of portuguese cheeses, and charcuterie, combined in mixed boards. Handmade canned fish delights. Rare and old Port and Madeira wines collection, also by the glass.

Please note: this is a small and informal traditional wine bar with tapas of cheese and charcuterie that does NOT have any cooked meals; opens around 6pm and starts closing at 11pm, therefore the options breakfast/brunch and late night do not apply; closes on Mondays. Thank you.
