The people who liked this club are the ones that didn't go to any other fado clubs. This was the wrose fado club that we had in Lisbon. It is true it is famous but trust me you should checkout articles about where to go if you want an authentic experience. We had to wait a lot even if we... More

I had a fantastic evening at Clube de Fado. The food was so-so but the fado itself was fantastic. Two brilliant musicians and three amazing woman vocalists. The set-up is singing and eating in between - so if you are looking for non-stop music, this is probably not the place. For me it was a perfect balance. Go and visit... More

Being in Lisbon we tried to find a specific Lisbon restaurant where to eat something traditional and to listen fado music. For this place was easy to make a reservation and the price of a taxi was about 6-8 euros. The atmosphere was as we thought, meaning well and the fado music perfect. The problem is that all the entrances... More

I felt the urge to leave my point of view after reading several negative reviews about this place. We went here for New Year's Eve, and I was absolutely amazed by what Club de Fado offered us. Yes, I have to agree that the interior design is not very romantic. But once the red lights go on, and the fado... More

My husband and I went to several fado shows while we were on Portugal, this is the worst one by far. We arrived at 8:00pm and was stuck at a corner in the restaurant where there is no way to see the stage. Half of my table was wet from the leak in the ceiling upstairs. I did not realize... More

I had a different conception of what the program would be like at Club de Fado. I arrived way too early (doors open at 8 PM). If you have a reservation, you can arrive minutes before the show. I was given appetizers I did not order and they were added to my bill (5 euros). My hotel told me there... More

I bring my old Lady there and se got in na nobody told us you have to pay 10€ for watching The fado singing. We had a wine for 37€ (The wine cost 4€ in a market). We thought expensive and left for dinner another place: we paid 79€ for a wine and 5min fado.

We arrived a bit early at 20:30 and were seated near the show. Extremely polite and competent service with outstanding recommendation for the wine selection. We were served a big plate of cheese sausages fried vegetables and olives. Could easily have passed on the starter. The show was very authentic and exceeded our expectations.

I just want to echo what many others have said about Mario Pacheco's Clube de Fado. This is a wonderfully friendly, welcoming place where you can hear the "Portuguese Blues" better known as Fado. Mr. Pacheco himself performs along with several wonderful young singers, including an unusual male fado singer. Come here for the music and atmosphere. The food is... More

Other friends who have frequented Clube de Fado recommended us to visit while we were in Lisbon. It is not a disappointment. The music - the guitarist, the vocals, the band are very talented. The food is ok. While we did go there for dinner and music, I recommend going there a bit later and only for drinks as the... More
