The food is good, not delicious, the plates are medium. The music is beautiful and is a very big "pro" for the place.

Dear Client, Fado and Folk Dances/Music are two different popular expressions of Portuguese Cultures, which are both presented at Timpanas. Hoper yoy understood that the prices also reflect the show presented. Thank you very much for visiting Timpanas.
