We had a brilliant time at this tasca enjoying the high quality fado singers. Don't come for the food, do come for the fado. Drinks wee bit more expensive but seeing as there's no cover charge you're still doing very well!

No, good luck finding a way to make a reservation. My advice would be to call or stop in on one night to make it for another night.

I am afraid you need to call them for advice. They are supposed to have performance every night. Usually, every hour, such as 8pm, 9pm, 10pm, +10 mins maybe. When the fado performance is on, they will be shut.
