The importance of arriving on time at this establishment,  which  feels more like being invited to a friend's home, is quite clear.  Each patron is greeted personally and warmly by the husband and wife owners, and though the night begins with a handshake, it ends...More

We felt lucky to secure a reservation at this wonderfully small and intimate Fado venue. We'd read reviews, but still we're so amazingly impressed that the individuals who were fun and spirited during the dinner service also treated us to their talent. It felt like...More

Three stars is just above average, so this is really a 3 star review. First, the food and wine are great--choice of very typical Portuguese seafood stew or pork with clams for the entree (along with a great starter array of cheeses and meats). But...More

Everything was wonderful, food, hosts and Fado. We enjoyed the evening very much and even loved sitting very close to each other. The doors are closed at ten o'clock, there is no coming and going, which makes you feel like being on a private party.

This is a family owned establishment, where a couple and their daughter prepare/serve the food and perform the Fado. The food was amazing and the experience of Fado was wonderful We felt like family and would recommend to anyone visiting Lisbon.

Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and,
of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music.
The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755
destroyed most of the city but the contiguous
neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained
standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent
Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the

On off the least pretentious of Lisbon's Fado restaurants is also one of its finest. Hosts Duarte Santos and Ana Marina treat guests as family and the homely ambiance is warming and inviting. The homemade gastronomy is noted for its textures and flavours and generous portions, with the seafood cataplana (stew) a much-lauded feast. The menu is limited, but here it's all about the quality of the food. As for the entertainment, this is local fado at its most authentic -- the singers and musicians have known each other for years, and the performance is heartfelt and genuine. Quite often, diners are invited to join in which makes the evening truly memorable.
