I have been a fan of Fado for years before coming to Lisbon but this is only the second time I saw it live. My wife booked us a reservation here, which I felt very lucky to have because it got so packed. Really liked...More

Although our first visit to lisbon,Tasca do Chico has the appearance and feel of a genuine cultural experience. The room is tight with people, the performers are close, and their singing heartfelt. The Accompanying musicians were excellent, and they played all night as varying singers...More

I can recommend this place only if you want to listen to Portuguese Fado and feel some local atmosphere. However, if you want to have a proper dinner that is wrong place for you. Cafe offer only snacks for not very reasonable price. Service is...More

On one hand it's nice that it's old and tiny. I was incredibly lucky that a guide invited me. I got a seat at his table. Our view was blocked within minutes though. It's just too small to handle as many people as it attracts....More

If you love music and want to listen to it then this is the place. Don't expect to be able to hold a conversation though as you will be "shushed" and asked to be quiet while the performers are performing. Quite right... More
Hi, I've been trying to contact this bar to book a table (I've heard it's hard to get in on the night as it's always packed) - so do you have any contact details or tips for what time to arrive to get a decent spot for enjoying the Fado and getting a few drinks and tapas? Thank U.
