Above title says it all. First we were ignored, then condescended to, then bossed around by the pushy server. once it because clear we were actually going to spend some money, she wouldn’t leave us alone! To the point of openly refusing to bring us our check because we ‘needed to relax some more’. Uhhh What? This also seems like a wine shop that just got some bar tables and stools... which hurt my back, which was one of the reasons we wanted to go, after two hours! Sigh. Well, the other server was sweet and so was the owner. But I’d rather go somewhere else.

We went here to enjoy good wine in the sun. Very good service and really good wines at reasonable prices. We didn't eat here, but this is a nice place for a quick lunch.

We booked for 8pm but it was clear from the moment we arrived that the lady serving us was in a rush to see us leave. We thought we were being presented with wine choice advice but it turned out that the only wines sold by the glass were the house white and house red. Both fine. Nothing to write home about. We had a cheese plate, bread, melon and smoked ham, olive oil. All fine. We were hurried through and were in and out in under an hour. We were repeatedly asked if we’d finished and were given our coats without requesting them before even finishing our second glass of wine. Not at all what we’d expected given the reviews.

We have decided to do an early evening bite and eat some tapas and drink a typical portugese good wine. This was the right address and in a beautiful and lively area and pretty close to Praca d/ Commercio.

My wife and I visited Lisbon for her 40th and loved the city. I looked before hand at places to go and Fado & Wine looked at great place to go and received really good reviews.

I can say you will not be disappointed we loved every minute at Fado & Wine the family run business is amazing the service faultless and the ambiance great.

We were asked what wine we liked how much was our budget and received one of the best bottles of red wine I and my wife have tasted we also asked for the continental meat platter which was excellent.

We were made to feel really welcome and if we visited Lisbon again Fado & Wine would be one of the first places we would go back to.

We used the FORK app to book a table which is linked to trip advisor and received 30% off the bill as well which came as an added bonus.
