Description: Located in the heart of Lisbon, in a mandatory visit neighborhood as the Bairro Alto, just a few meters away from Chiado, you find in this Wine House a committed team in a relaxed, family atmosphere, accompanied by live music that animates every night. Between the passion for wines of Antonio Baeta and the passion for cuisine of Silvia Mendes, we get the alchemical mixture of two key ingredients that make the success of this house. On the one hand, more than 1000 national references between white, red, green, sparkling and fortified wine, where the vast majority can be tasted by glass, or even taken home bottled, on the other hand, a continuous search for the best Portuguese delicacies turned into simple dishes, but with great flavor, from cheese and sausages boards with homemade jams, to mussels or scallops gratinated, seared canned tuna, or even cod or octopus in the oven. Upstairs this XVIII century building, fully redone, you can find a room for the night in a cozy environment. Six bedrooms, some with private bathroom, a mixed dormitory, a common living room, a common kitchen where breakfasts are served or where you can cook your own food and an outdoor patio, make of this Hostel a selected place for those who like to enjoy the night of Bairro Alto, and want to stick around. Enjoy every moment of the two spaces in a relaxed way and with quality. Wine House Open every day from 12h00 to 24h00.

“Atmosphere with a capital 'A'”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

This is a review of the Grapes and Bites wine bar where we had a fantastic time: although the menu is tapas based it is possible to have a perfectly reasonably sized (and tasty) evening meal. Wine accompaniment is excellent as you would expect, and the general feel of the place with the live music sessions add to the atmosphere. There was a mixed demographic - it wasn't only young people eating there, and despite the music it was possible to have a chat amid the hustle and bustle: the noise was not overwhelming. Grapes and Bites is extremely popular (people on the busy street were hanging around to catch the vibe) so you are strongly advised to book: especially at the weekend. Great place / great fun / not to be missed if you are staying in central Lisbon . . .

“Fantastic Atmosphere and Food!”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Wine was superb and the Duck I had was just stunning! Even the guy singing hits from the 80's and 90's was great! Never thought I would ever have written that last sentence. Fantastic night!

“WOW!”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

What a great place. The food was excellent. We went there twice, we liked it so much the first time. The staff really knows their stuff about the wines and ports they serve. Atmosphere was great and my (very) finicky kids ate all their food.
