I came upon The Old Pharmacy whilst wandering one night in Bairro Alto. It was a serendipitous discovery! One thing I should mention is that they do try to up-sell you on things, but all of their recommendations were good and the prices were reasonable....More

Great value - an 8 euro port or wine tasting gets you three glasses to try. Add cheese and ham and you've supper. They know their stuff and have endless advice to give. We loved it.

Make sure you try to sit in the main section, the other area is a little quiet and featureless. Wonderful wines to accompany wonderful meats and cheeses. Good mix of locals and tourists. Recommend either booking or getting there early, as it's tiny.

Bairro Alto, Bica & Cais do Sodre
Enjoy a cocktail, discover a jazz club, hit the dance
floor or simply grab a beer and catch up with your
friends in the street: Bairro Alto, Bica and Cais do
Sodré are the core of it all. Amazing rooftops,
restaurants, cafes, bars, art galleries, museums and
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
