Salty and oily fish, cheating in the bill, but good fado

Too much oil in the fish and extremely salty salad. Poor waiters except one lady, Christina, I think. Poor english. In the bill the sum was incorrect. The fado was good though.

The worst food in Lisbon! After not eating one meal they tried to charge us for lots of bits in the bill overpriced, 9 euro for cheese? Get real! An awful overpriced meal with stressed staff!

Hi! After a really poor dinner we discover that the price for 2dishes of fish, salad, white potatoes and half bottle of wine the bill was 64 euros (10euros instead of 9 for the wine, and the same for almost every dish) so my boyfriend complained for the wrong prices and the addiction of 8euros for some Jamon and 8...

This fado restaurant caters not like so many others only for tourists. When I was there there were also Portugese eating there. The food is simple but good and not expensive. The fado also was good (exept the first singer, but that appeared to be the dish washing lady who also gave it a shot).

We came for the experience of the famous fado singing and we got it. Great atmosphere with five different people performing, a mix from young woman over mature women to older man. They sang with much feeling each in their own style. We enjoyed that a lot. However, the food ... hmm, well, I won't put into words what it... More

A few days before out hotel recommended a Fado restaurant that we decided not to book. It sounded too touristy. On this evening we decided just to walk around the Chiado neighborhood and find something that looked good. We found this Fado restaurant and decided to try it. The food was fine - nothing special. Service was attentive. It looked... More

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
