NileGuide Expert tip:
Try the Catarina, a white wine from Setúbal and one of the owner's favourites.
As the name implies, this cosy candlelit establishment combines the owner's love of antique art with her passion for fine wine. Look out for the 17th-century tiles (azulejos
) displayed in glass cases, and the Indian tribal masks. All artwork can be purchased. Wines sold by the glass include Chaminé, a fruity red from the Alentejo, and a lovely vinho verde
, Alvarinho Deu La Deu. There are some rare bottles for sale too, notably a Barca Velha 2000 from the Douro, and Pera Manca 2001, an exceptional red from the Alentejo. The bar's easy-going ambiance and friendly vibe makes it a great place to meet for a drink with friends. There's also an appetising menu of tasty tapas to tempt those taste buds.
