We visited twice during our Lisbon trip. The staff were friendly and the ambience was excellent. We just had a drink before heading for dinner. The wine list is very good. Overall a really nice, relaxing spot and highly recommended.

They flavour their wines with a small seasoning of tapas. Great wine list and very knowledgeable sommeliers. Made for a great evening trying different wines with different nibbles to eat. They were quite happy to give tasters of the different wines to help with the choice

I'd go with many of the other reviewers and recommend this place. An upmarket wine bar in the Barrio Alto with a huge selection of wines and ports. Tapas plates are also good. Everything that I have tasted there has been excellent, and the staff know their stuff. You pay slightly more than the average wine/port bar but I think... More

On our first night in Lisbon we wanted to try some nice red wine and have a simple dinner. The Sommelier choose great Portugese wines ( we went with his choices) huge range by the glass. He gave samples of each. Food was simple, wine was great. Easy, casual and very very enjoyable.

Came across this place by accident and was very pleased we did! This is a very nice wine bar which also serves cheeses/ ham and tapas style nibbles rather than full meals. They have an extensive ( and I mean extensive) wine and port selection. The staff were lovely and clearly very knowledgeable about wine. They have taster packages (5... More

This was my best find in Lisbon! I went to Lisbon a couple of weeks ago and as much as I loved all aspects of Lisbon, this was my highlight. It is so nice to find a place that you can go for a pre and post dinnner drink in such a cool place. The wine list is superb and... More

Exxcellent Portuguese wines and extremely reasonable rates, the ambiance in an old pharmacy leads one to deduce that wine is the remedy to all ailments. Fun, friendly and fantastic.

Well worth a visit just to have a nosey at the place - it is unusual and pretty. Lovely light petiscos (Portuguese tapas) and a great selection of wines. Prices are reasonable and staff were friendly and accommodating.

The old pharmacy has its special charme due to the interior decoration with shelves full of wine bottles illuminated by changing coloured background light. The service is very friendly service in multiple languages. Before you order your wine or port you can taste different sorts, ages, or origins. Of course you must order some cheese or ham with bread to... More
