When i saw this shop i really got suprised. It's adorable. The products are unique, the staff is perfect (Joanna the owner's daughter is very sweet and helpful) and you can really forget the time tasting all these goodies. We ate a sandwich and we drunk a glass of Red wine with only 5 euros but we bought cheese, porto wine jam, sardines and other exceptional local products.Such kind of small gourmet shops/restaurants make me really happy. In a touristic area like Sintra, this shop is really a small paradise!

Discovered this place by accident when exploring the back streets of Sintra. Tucked at the end of an alleyway it could easily be missed. It looks like a delicatessen/wine shop, which it is but it also has a few tables where glasses of wine and sharing platters can be enjoyed. It´s also possible to buy items to take away as well.

We ordered a sharing platter of salamis, sardine pate, cheese - and one of these was outstanding - Azeitão - we hadn´t tried this before. I can only compare it to a wonderful runny Camembert - it was superb and served just right.

We were also given the opportunity to sample a few of the red wines before choosing the bottle we wanted, which I thought was a lovely touch and made our lunch here outstanding. Our lunch was perfect and so enjoyable.

One of the first along the town route with signs for Ginja. (Spelled many ways)
Clerk was super courteous, store offers a sample shot in a chocolate cup for one euro. I expressed some interest in a pear brandy and she readily offered me a sample. Not for me. After walking around some more, I came back and bought some of the Ginja. There were some small tasting options with the chocolate cups but I didn't think they'd survive the airplane trip. I opted for a small bottle for 11 euros to take home. The clerk was again very welcoming and offered to have me try more items.

Almost missed this little gem. Fabulous bread/cheese platter followed by Ginjinha in chocolate cups. Divine! Opportunity to sample other fare from the little shop too before buying. Staff so friendly too which is a plus.

An amazing little place which we almost missed. We had just enjoyed a tapas meal just down the street when my son in law spied this little place which he just had to visit.

The staff were amazing, their knowledge of the wines was superb. They explained the various platters and we opted for the €25 platter for two which was ENORMOUS and was ample for a party of 5 who had had some tapas a short time earlier.

This little find was really one of the highlights of this short (first visit) to Lisbon
