The glug, glug of a 40-year-old tawny being poured is music to port-lovers’ ears here. Part of an 18th-century mansion, this low-lit, beamed cavern is ideal for nursing a glass from the 180-plus inventory of Portugal’s finest. Ports by the glass cost €2.80 to €13.50.

There are vivid menu descriptions of various styles for those in need of a primer. It feels like an outdated gentleman's club, but don't let that deter you from indulging in Portugal's most famous tipple.
