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!

My husband and I were looking for a casual wine bar with food and music. We were recommended further down the road but returned after the woman at the door kindly offered us a restaurant guide of the city. We were shown to the best seat in the house...a couch with full view of the guitarist, people and wine. We were treated to recommendations for both wine and food after the most amazing waiter choose our wine perfectly. We had the plate to share and requested a dessert and port recommendation. He opened the vintage Port in the traditional way, glass heated, cracked, and top removed. It was very spectacular and the pairing with the chocolate was out of this world. What a great experience!

Taste Portugal with a great guide (Alex). Olive oil, cheese, meats and a few other surprises were well matched to a fine selection of wines from sparkling and crisp whites, nice full-bodied reds, and an intro to port wines. Great location and atmosphere...a must do in Lisbon!

Grapes & bites is a great hostel, very well designed.
It's located in Bairro Alto bar erea. Something to take under consideration - noise.
Be sure that sleeping there will put you right in the center where the nightlife happens.
Under the hostel you can find grapes & Bites resturant where you get a discount as well as amazing food!

Great location for this newly renovated guest house/hostel, if you don't mind being in the centre of Lisbon nightlife. If not for the spacious and cute rooms in a old house with high ceilings, you should come just for the great service: the girls working there are amazingly helpful and nice! And the breakfast in the morning, all sitting at the huge kitchen table, is just great.
Definitively a place to remember.

Had dinner here based on trip advisor reviews. They more than lived up to them!!! Food was stunning. Love music was just fabulous and the wine was to die for! We got the platter of everything and just shared it all between us. Amazing cool vibe and fun atmosphere. Again could have say there all night but had kids to get to their bed. Will defiantly go back.

We heard about this restaurant from some other Australians who had be there
Organised a party of 7 at short notice and nothing was too much trouble for explanations about wine and food
Had an enjoyable night but they had live music and in the confines made conversation a bit difficult.
Is a bit difficult to find but we'll worth the effort
