As well as a popular daytime haunt, this snug rustic-style bar is a favourite after hours option for those seeking fine wine and good conversation. Tucked away at the top of a narrow lane under the shadow of Lisbon's castle, the location couldn't be more romantic. The wines, from vineyards across Portugal, are simply outstanding and sold by the bottle or glass. Complementing the reds, whites, ports and Madeiras is a menu of appetising snacks, regional delicacies that include tangy cheeses and smoked ham cuts. This is the perfect venue to unwind with your other half or with a select group of friends. Bereft of loud music and flashing lights, the bar instead is hushed and intimate, and exudes a delightfully civilised atmosphere.
