Note - This review is for the restaurant only!
Well, first off it's open on Sunday; there we were idly roaming around to try and find a decent place to eat and we found this treasure ..........
By no means a swanky restaurant, this is a wine lovers paradise with a huge choice of both Portuguese and foreign wines to enjoy with some light nibbles and 'tapas; style food. The staff were absolutely charming; we were looked after by Alex, who appeared to know intimately every wine on the menu and everybody in the restaurant - we were impressed how the wide range of nationalities were made instantly at home as he greeted and worked with them all in their native language (I certainly heard French, Spanish, English and German being spoken with a fair degree of fluency).
The food was good (but not the main event); the wine was excellent (you can then buy those you like to take away) and of course the live music - absolutely superb! I'm sure this would be a fantastic venue any day of the week, but certainly a great, boozy, cheesy, sausagey (they did also have vegetarian dishes I should point out), way to end the weekend.
Go and enjoy it!
