Great Fado, OK Food

The fado performances were great and we really enjoyed the show. They had 4 different performers throughout the night. However, the food was just average and a bit over priced... read more

This place was suggested by a local acquaintance! My experience with live Fado was limited however it was with great expectations that a group of friends decided to attend. The place is small and simple, but very cosy. The service was good and the food -contrary to usual expectations for similar establishments- was very good, bringing the whole experience to... More

This was our first time experiencing Fado live, and what a place to do it! It was recommended to us as the best place in Lisbon to see Fado, and we were not disappointed. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside it is an intimate small space with probably 30-40 seats, neatly decorated in traditional Portuguese style.... More

On my first trip to Lisbon , my wife booked a Fado & dinner for our first night there , we had communicated via email as we did not want to partake in the Valentine's day set menu , the choices were Hake with a curry sauce or a Pork Loin , this was not my idea of typical Lisbon... More

This was recommended to us mainly because of the Fado experience. We booked a table for 8pm and we needed a taxi as it was some way from the hotel. We actually arrived about 7-40pm only to be told by the Maitre D in a very brusque and rude way that they did open until 8pm - so we were... More

I'm still trying to recover from the amount of money we dished out for this less than memorable experience. My boyfriend and I decided to try this place out so that he could get an authentic "fado" experience while also feasting on real Portuguese cuisine. We knew it was expensive (we checked it out on TripAdvisor beforehand :)) but it... More

At the restaurant next to the hotel, we met a local gentleman who recommended Senhor Vinho. Every cab driver immediately knew what we meant. Saturday night we were turned away as they are full. I found out later the tables at this restaurant sells only once a night. We got in Sunday night. They have a prix fixe menu for... More

As far as I can remember I went to this renowned fado establishment. Tonight was special as this my first visit after my father's passing away. He knew Maria de Fe the (former) owner personally and so he always organised something as we never had to choose from the menu. Tonight we sorted with the clams and followed with the... More

As others have said at first sight this looks like an unpromising venue but the Fado was accomplished and the overall experience a good one. The food and atmosphere were both good although ruined some what by some diners using flash or filming lights on their phones. It clearly annoyed the performers as well. The food was good and the...

From the outside it looks like you've came to the wrong place. except for the kind man helping you out the taxi. Inside we felt like walking into a Portuguese livingroom, very cozy. The staff serviced us in a very polite and friendly manner, making us feel like home, and helped us with all our questions regarding the food and... More
