I made a reservation here because I wanted to see some fado and get at least decent food at the same time. I certainly got that. The bread was possibly the most fantastic bread I have ever had. After 2.5 weeks in Portugal and Spain, my wife and I ate still talking about it. My Portuguese style steak was great.... More

A "must have" experience of the famous Fado singing in the Alfama district of Lisbon, which was very good, and well worth hearing. We only wish we could have understood the words, but the soulful anguish and melancholy portrayed by the singing was palpable and very moving. This certainly outweighed the food and the service which were mediocre.

Lacklustre food- mediocre fado - bucket list ambition disappointed - a pity because the owner, Mario Pacheco is one of the best advocates for this beautiful music and that night the experience did not match the hype

Good food with nice Fado. The steaks were especially juicy. Not cheap but if you want to experience Fado and have good food while at it... This is the place :-)

A nice family run restaurant in the centre of Alfama Lisbon to take in a standard Fado concert and 3 courses of fair tasting food. This pace is easy to get in even if you land up in Lisbon without a reservation

Visited with friends. Three performances of 15-20 min each with three different singers. Especially the male singer was excellent. The portuguise guitar with the special sound was imptessing; the player was second to none. The food was ok and was served well and without too much waiting

Clube do fado has a long history and it shows. Musicians and singers are excellent not only because they have nice voices but because they can transmit you their passion for fado even if you don't understand a word of the lyrics. As one of the reasons we visited Lisbon was to hear the original and good fado I didn't... More
