Visited recently whilst on a trip to Lisbon following a recommendation from a friend who had visited in 2016. Made a reservation prior to travelling which was crucial as a number of people were turned away as the place was fully booked. Initially struggled to find the location as it was closed when we walked past and we didn't notice... More

This was a truly great find. This wine bar sits 20-25. Cozy venue - great friendly staff. The cheese and ham platter would easily feed 4 - really great selection of local ham and cheese. We had local bubbles (Murganheira) to drink inexpensive and really great.

We were fully aware of what to expect as we had read the reviews. Great cold meats and cheese board while trying the different types of wine from different areas of Portugal. Simples.......Slight downside lacks atmosphere ....but we enjoyed the wine and the knowledge of the waitress. about all the wines which we loved.

Made a reservation in advance of try out this wine bar. Great hostess helped us choose a very nice bottle of wine from Portugal. We had a mixed plate of delicious hams and cheeses with a a nice jam. Don't expect a hot meal here. It's all about the amazing wine and cheese. Sit back and enjoy

This was my second trip to the BA Wine Bar. The first time was in March of 2016. Back then there was 7 people in our group, which nearly filled this tiny place to half capacity. Even with 7 people, Carla, our excellent sommelier, took the time to give each of us her undivided attention. When I found out I... More

This wine bar is very small but very good. It can really only accommodate a maximum of 15 guests at a time; but the owner does not even like his establishment filled to maximum occupancy because he does not want the quality of the service to deteriorate as there are only three of them serving and enlightening us. We had... More

I was lucky enough to spend the evening here and it was fantastic. It's a small and compact place, only about 6 or 7 tables so you're going to have to book well in advance or get very lucky. The service and food was simply awesome. They have a massive wine range and take their time to discuss the options... More

Had a fantastic evening at this wine bar. Tiny little place in a side street with about 5 tables. Gets busy so you just book or come late and chance your luck. We tried sparking wines and red wine and in the end had a bottle of some lovely Portuguese red wine with our sharing platter of cheese and meats... More

Loved our evening here. We had wines by the glass and started by giving out very knowledgable host and indication of our tastes. We were then bought a number of bottles to taste in order to chose our favourite. For food we had the meat and cheese plate along with tinned sardines. All food was really high quality. Great place... More

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.
