Move along, folks! Nothing really happening here. I mean, it's not the best but I guess word has gone around that it's something to try while in Lisbon, ergo, the line in front. Not particularly impressive but for a buck and a quarter, why not...More

Wonderful stop to forget about any stress you might have in Lisbon, although very unlikely in this beautiful city. Good to have a couple of sour cherry liquour shots passing by. I strongly recommend.

A super authentic ginjinha bar in the centre of Lisbon. We enjoyed a five minute trip to the bar to sample the ginjinha. Would definitely seek out again for a truly Lisboan experience.

For me this is one of the most iconic spots in Lisbon. You must try ginjinha when in Lisbon and this is the place to try it. Always a queue and the taste warrants the wait.
