Very good porto at unbeatable price. Sort of a mecca of porto. You can try so many porto that you will have hard time coming down the Calcada do Gloria! Try it and you will enjoy it. Old style salon, nothing moderne there however.

If you want to try many different ports, this is the place. It's like entering a library, very quiet. You'll be handed a booklet when you sit, and you can browse and select what appeals to you. Don't expect a recommendation though. They aren't helpful...More

We went to this "port library" twice during our visit to Lisbon. We understood that the Institute is run by the Portuguese Government to support the port producers, which obviously helps the country's economy. The facility is quiet and has comfortable chairs and sofas to...More
