About Bartolomeu Bistro & Wine

Our History

Inspired by the theme of the Portuguese discoveries, Bartolomeu Bistro & Wine is named after the Portuguese explorer Bartolomeu Dias. Born in 1450, he was a nobleman of the Portuguese royal household. In 1488, he was the first person to sail around the southernmost tip of Africa, setting up the route from Europe to Asia. Dias is the first European to land at what is present-day South Africa.

Bartolomeu Bistro & Wine is part and parcel of the “Torel 1884 Suites & Apartments”, a luxury boutique hotel that opened in February 2019. Located in the heart of Porto, it offers 12 rooms and suites and 11 apartments. Torel 1884 Suites & Apartments is part of the Torel Boutiques collection.

 Torel Boutiques is the story of three people whose paths crossed in Lisbon when all of them had decided to change their lives: João Pedro Tavares, Barbara Ott, and Ingrid Koeck. Starting with the luxury boutique hotel “Torel Palace Lisbon” in Lisbon in 2013, the five-star hotel Torel Avantgarde” in Porto featuring the restaurant & bar "Digby" in 2017, "Torel 1884 Suites & Apartments" and our most recent project, inaugurated in 2020, the five-star hotel "Torel Palace Porto", featuring the refined restaurant & bar "Blind".

All our establishments encompass the spirit of comfort and refinement, providing dedicated service, and hosting our guests in a very personal manner.
