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, but the singers were very nice and chatted with us.

Touristy, you say? Some friends (a Portuguese couple) who love all things Portuguese, especially Fado, were chatting with us about Fado and a great place they love, sharing that it is a place the Portuguese enjoy and not a tourist destination (but the menu has several languages). I'll take their word over that of disgruntled tourists who have decided it's... More

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

Is a small but nice place, food is ok for the direct fado they got. You will have to wait if arrive late. All kind of "bacalao".

It's nice cosy (mom and pop) place. You will see the regular customer around that came for fado. Me and my friend like it so much so we came back again. It's popular and crowdy so try to come early.

We had a nice meal, a bottle of wine and listened to FADO music for 41 Euros. The female singer, Linda, had a lovely voice. The male singer seemed new and was perhaps in training. They were frustrated at one point with the talking level in the restaurant, which I would have thought they would be used to. They were... More

It's a scam. Don't go there. Me and my fiancée have a tendency of indecision and we were suckered in because it was there after wandering around Bairro Alto aimlessly for a while and because we needed food. From the window it looked like it was a kind of friendly place and it was filled with people which is usually... More

The place is nice, a bit touristy but still charming..the singers alternate every 30 mins more or less with a 3 songs show each time...the food is not that good, a bit overpriced the wine but me and my girlfriend went on a late Sunday night and we got the show just for us. Really nice experience..we are not experts... More

I went to see tasca do chiko nearby but they were fully booked and it seemed impossible to get in there. As for alternative we tried this place as we leave next day and i really wanted to see a fado show. We were told that no cover for show and just need to pay for foods. We were seated... More

Like others we were enticed by a nice young lady promising Fado. This place is a tourist trap of the worst kind. The fado is ok, but it consists of 10 mins fado followed by 30 mins 'break', basically the singers are doing the rounds. The food was awful, the wine the most overpriced cash and carry plonk and the... More
