Went there with colleagues to have dinner. My plate was pork scallops and fries and it was superb. Loved the singing too. Waitress was also helpful and friendly

Being here as a last minute option before new years eve and had a pleasant experience. Fado was good and the food as well. Only trouble was the price which was kind expensive at the time but a part from that had no problems.

This was truly the worst dinner I have ever had. The restaurant is extremely dated and basic. The menu was too large and desperately needs updated. I ordered the grilled chicken with chips and salad - the chicken arrived in offcuts of meat (ribs, leg and spine?) and was luke warm. The chips were soggy and full of oil. My... More

Do not eat here! It was quite expensive for terrible service and average food. The fado was ok but too loud and once we had eaten our meal they couldn't get us out of there fast enough.

We visited twice had the sea bass and steak. Both meals were cooked fresh and were lovely. Staff friendly and attentive. Good prices on par with other restuarants. Fado music gave a great atmosphere. We would visit again.

One guy to look pretty and stand pointing at the sign, one to serve EVERYONE and is rushed off his feet. 20 minutes to receive a menu and 45 minutes to get your first course. The food is ok, middle of the road, but the service is what let's this place down. They seem more concerned with enticing people in... More

We went to this place after they stopped us in the street, I love the Bacalhau a Bras, but it was only potatoes in the plate. Expensive and not interesting. Many better places in Lisboa to eat. House wine very basic...

We loved the place and the food also very much, ordered a seafood plate with rice, it was delicious and a very big portion, we almost could not finish it!:D During our dinner there was a very nice woman singing fado music, the whole thing was very cozy! I can recommend the place to everyone!;)
