Unlike other reviewers who looked at the opinions of previous reviewers, we did not. We dropped in around 11am from a hop-on hop-off bus tour that stopped at the escarpment lookout. Eagle eyes me spotted the port wine sign and we went in, as you...More

Yes, we read the reviews. Yes, we ignored them. Yes, that was silly because yes, the staff is as terrible as everyone says. They not only don't care, they act as if you're disturbing them by placing an order. They barely speak to customers much...More

All the reviews that said this place is not helpful are correct. They will not tell you anything about port or even give you any idea of what you might want to try. If you come here definitely know something about what you like to...More

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.

We took Rick Steves advice and followed the plan he lays out in his Lisbon travel guide. Start with the lowest cost white port and work your way up the ladder. The Instituto is run by the government and showcases port from, of course, Portugal....More

Went to this place to try some porto. There were no other guests. The choice of wines is good but the two gentlemen serving the whole place were, well, sort of busy or better simply not present at all. Asking for a recommendation for a...More

Enjoy a cocktail, discover a jazz club, hit the dance

friends in the street: Bairro Alto, Bica and Cais do
Sodré are the core of it all. Amazing rooftops,

theaters abound. Start off by admiring the river from
the Santa Catarina belvedere, have a cocktail at
PARK's rooftop bar, try a typical Portuguese steak, or
