Only good thing here is the live Fado music. Food is overpriced. 15 euro for a dish that doesn't look or taste extraordinary. Evening was ruined by an incident between a customer and the manager. Not professional at all from him

We were wandering the Biarro Alto looking for a place for dinner. Were approached by a gentleman who asked if we were looking for a restaurant for dinner with fado, although we were a little sceptical, as it was starting to rain, we agreed. The...More

I went here with my friend to experience fado. The two singers were good, but the female was by far the best. We had dinner elsewhere prior to coming, but had drinks. Server was friendly. The breaks in between acts can be a bot annoying,...More

Fado is great! Lovely performers, but the food and service were terrible and expensive... It tasted like nothing.

I wish I could but I was there only once. My guess is that they don't take reservations and that they are open late. We arrived fairly early in the evening and it was not busy (during the week). It became busier as it got... More
