We visited this restaurant to enjoy Fado - the experience was exhilarating and included some great food but the experience was better than that. Many Fado singers including a guest visitor must of the singers also waited in tables, locals singing along with the singers in what seemed like a family run business - very comfortable with air con and...

Don't dream, it's just business. We just passed by the restaurant, it was packed and the boss was singing fado on the street. Wow, and there's a free table for 2...! Immediately you're getting some dishes without request. Later on the bill you're 20 euros lifted just for that: ham,butter and bread. Enjoy the ride!

Among all the restaurants which offer dinner with fado, this one looked as the most genuine! The owners and waiters were both serving tables and singing for the guests. Price is average for Bairro Alto, food is delicious!

Dropped into this place the other evening to see if it had improved since my last visit, when I got grossly overcharged (see earlier Tripadvisor report). I refused everything except a glass of wine. They are still at it - quite a lot of consternation from customers when they saw their bills. But what I really can't understand is why... More

First, the food is decent here. If I ate like this in an Amsterdam or a Copenhagen for a comparable price, I would give the place 4 stars. But by local standards, the pricing is extortionate, pumped up by unseen add-ons and unwanted extras. How a dinner of two EUR 15 mains and a bottle of wine got to be... More

First off I'm not sure why everyone else is complaining about the expensive bread/cheese/butter they put at your table when you sit down. Literally every restaurant around Lisbon and Portugal we ate at over a week did this and they all charge about the same ridiculous prices. It's not relatively that shocking actually. Locals just refuse it when it's put... More

Food very expensive and poor. Serve and bring things as we did not order. Several guests did"t understand the bill.

The "speciality of the house" - bacalhau com natas ... The worst sh.t I ever eat! The prices: 5€ for a tiny Porto glass, 15€ for a poor quality wine and on the invoice a lot of differences comparing to menu (bacalhau invoiced 15€ instead of 12€) and a lot of things we didn't order!! All of this on a... More

When queried we were spoke down to & told that this was the charge. Food was dry and needless to say we will never return when in... More

The only way to escape daylight robbery in this joint, if you insist on going there, is by walking in after sunset. The down-to-earth, simple atmosphere of this place betrays its Michelin-Star worthy prices. Needless to say the food has a long way to go to reach that category. The chocolate ice cream contained more watery frozen splinters than chocolate... More
