Amazing place to learn and enjoy great Portuguese wine. The food is delicious and you will have an explosion of flavours. The Pani Puri shrimp and truffle is highly recommended.

Small but perfectly formed wine bar. Excellent range of wine and the bar man (sommelier really), knows his wine and shares his passion with you. Good choice by the glass, even more by the bottle. Vinho verde excellent. Wine flight good too. Short menu, which...changes, hence you don’t get a definitive one on the website. The dishes we had were: Pork belly tacos, which were complex with layers of flavour. Gyoza in Tom Yam type broth - light fragrant and lovely. Finally a very good, Portuguese cheeseboard. High quality, food, wine , staff and place.More

This is a lovely win bar in the heart of the old town. I wanted to try some different wines and asked for suggestions based on some general guidelines. I tried 3 wines based on their suggestions and they were all lovely. They clearly are...very knowledgable about the wines and take great pride in making their selections. I also had some amazing cheese to pair with the wines. The is a perfect place for wine lovers to explore!More

I wandered past this bar and remembered it had good ratings do thought I would pop in for a glass of wine before dinner. Ended up doing the 6 wine tasting flight which was a really enjoyable experience and had their fantastic cheese plate. A...couple of hours later I was super happy filled with good cheese, wine, and knowledge from the sommelier on the great range of Portuguese wines. Highly recommended.More

We do not understand the raving reviews at all. When we entered the bar it was 3 meters to a table. The owner pointed out in a rather unfriendly way we had to wear our face masks. So we did put them on, to immediately...take them off again, because we sat down. Nice start. But it is about the wines no? We asked for a full, but smooth wine, with not too much tannines. What we were served was a very acid wine, high in the tannines. When we said we would like to have a more smooth wine, not sweet, but higher in the sugars, we were told that Portugese wines do not have sugars, except for Port. Is this a joke? The new wine we received was a little better. There is no wine card/menu, and we were not told what (a glass of) the wine costs. The owner didn't bother to tell which region the wine is coming from and from what grapes it was made. Another thing we noticed was that all bottles of wines were standing up. We are not connoisseurs or sommeliers, but as far as we know, this is not done (cork drying out). We were outside again after 10 minutes and were far from impressed.More

We have visited this beautiful bar last week and we were very happy. Daniel has a very good range of wines and his team is very friendly and they have a big knowledge about their wines. They really know what they do. On this day...he offered a bottle wine and oysters in this bar. Best oysters I have tried here in Algarve. We took a natural sparkling wine to the Oysters, perfect match. Thanks for this beautiful evening. We will come back:)More
