A wine bar in a former reservoir – a unique concept (by Portuguese standards) in a unique space. An impressive selection of both Portuguese and European fine wines is available by the glass, along with a menu of accompanying cheese-based dishes. Staff will gladly recommend complementary wines as well as offering a fine wine tasting selection, which changes every fortnight.
Owner João Paulo Martins is Portugal’s most famous wine writer, and you’re likely to taste some of the best pressings the country has to offer. Dating back to 1781, the aqueduct forms part of the Grand Aqueduct in Praça Espanha. A tunnel, which can still be viewed, leads to a museum in Principe Real. The large stone building is divided into two tiers by a grey metal mezzanine and can be quite cold in winter. Whether you’re in search of a satisfying dinner or eager to sink a few bottles of wine, Enoteca comes highly recommended.
