At start we did take different kind of cheese, they were good. We did take two portion and then we share it. Food and wine was excellent. Service wasn't so good, although we were first only customers.

Found this place thanks to trip advisor, small quaint traditional in style, food was very good, we chose 5 different dishes from their 'snacks' menu and ate them between us tapas style, all very tasty and can happily recommend the visit, enjoy!

Directly across from similar name restaurant which is to be avoided. That said, this wine bar is cute & enjoyable with friendly knowledgeable staff. Huge hank of Iberian ham on bar adds to atmosphere. Small back room with tables, front room with low stools & 2-3 tables. Easy to mix & talk with other guests & staff.

One of the many small wine bars in this area. Friendly Portuguese owner (his wife has a restaurant opposite) and Brazilian staff. Good choice of wines, local ham, cheese and other food.

I am writing this review while i am still enjoying a glass of wine. We travelled from UK for a city break. This place is amazing, great food (try the black pork), great wine and great staff. I would definitely recommend this place. We might as well come back tomorrow to enjoy some more wine and food

It's a hole in the wall. Behind that wall is a #winelover paradise. Great wines, service and a homely feel. There is a wine for everyone, there is great food and there is heart. It is small place though so make sure to come early. This is a place where it is easy to spend a whole day though.

This is a nice wine bar in the Bairro Alto area of Lisbon. They have a nice range of wines served by the glass or bottle. They also specialise in "presiunto" which is cured Portuguese ham and also cheese. These are a great accompaniment for the wines. They also offer Alfaia beer "craft beer in a wine bar". I bought...

At first the waiter seemed a little standoffish, but turned out to be a wonderfully quirky character with excellent taste. He picked our wine and dishes, all of which were excellent. Left to my own devices I would have ordered all the wrong things.
