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

It´s not the first time I went to this place and the experience repeat itself: they have excellent musicians that play very well, specially one that plays Portuguese viola and good singers for Fado. The place is cozy and the neighborhood very beautiful, with the charm of the old Lisbon, with narrow streets in a hill, houses built in colonial... More

I read about Fado music in the travel books. Basically, it's Portuguese blues. So when my cousin decided to treat me out to a restaurant that featured live Fado music, I was eager to experience it. My visit to Clube de Fado really felt like I was in Europe. It's located in downtown Lisbon on a very narrow street. Inside,... More

Clube de Fado may be a tourists' favourite but it doesn't feel like a tourist trap. We visited on a Saturday in October and there was a full house for dinner. Music didn't start until after 9.30 and in the three hours we were there we heard three superb female fado singers and one male, each with distinctive styles, and... More

My wife and I searched around for a Fado restaurant during our stay in Lisbon and decided on Clube Fado, despite the wildly varying reviews. As many have said, the food is certainly on the expensive side, but I just considered it a cover charge for the music. The food was really good, with one issue. They brought my food... More

We went to this place because of Fado. The music was good and we enjoy it, but the prices for drinks and dinner were very painfull. After leaving the location we recognized, during study the bill, that we payed for mussles which we did not ordered. We had also pay for the Fado itself (7.50 ? p./P.) We did not... More

It was Saturday night, and we did not have a reservation. The goal was to listen to authentic good fado in not so touristy neighborhood, and decent food would have been a bonus. We came in around 9pm, and they had 1 table available because someone did not show up for their reservation, so we got seated right away. Food... More

If you´re a great fan or wish to have a true initiation to the magic of Portuguese Fado, this is the place en Lisbon. Aspiring Fado singers as well as seasoned performers can be enjoyed in this truly folk place. The food is reasonably good as it sticks to a very standard menu. Try to listen to as many rounds...

The guide book described this as touristy and it was a little although nothing like as tacky as some touristy restaurants I've been to. The food was very good and the portions generous - don't bother with a starter as they bring ham and cheese and delicious bread to nibble at. The Fado music was in 4 short sessions, each... More

A visit to a Fado house is a ‘must’ for any trip to Lisbon. We were recommended this place by one of our Portuguese hotel staff. It gets incredibly busy so a reservation is essential. We booked for 8.00 pm, with the Fado singing due to begin by 9.30 pm. It has a great authentic feel, not like one of... More
