Fado is a classic Irish Pub - so much so that you feel as if you are in County Cork! The beer is plentiful and food is as you would expect.

On a Saturday evening, it was very loud. The food was good pub food. Dessert was amazing. It would have been far more enjoyable with friends!

I visited the pub before and after I went to some Capitals and Wizards games. A really friendly atmosphere in the place and really friendly and helpful staff even though the place was packed with people.

Yes, there shouldn't be an issue because this is also a restaurant and I have seen families with under age children in Fado's having a meal.
