Located in the Barrio Alto it has a huge variety of porto wines by the glass. Prices per bottle to take away are cheaper than most tourist areas and much cheaper than the airport's duty free. The stuff will answer your questions nicely and patiently.

So what if the service is inattentive and slow? Once they start bringing the samples of port you will not care how long you sit in the comfortable leather chairs in the air-conditioned room trying to get the waiter's attention. It's a great opportunity to...More

Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally,
"squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers
plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can
stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its
streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and
viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the
famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa,
having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used
