Avoid! Tourist trap and hidden prices.

I was staying in an apartment down the street from this place, and as I was about to enter the apartment, I heard singing. I decided to take a look, and it seemed nice. Since we had already eaten, we ordered one beer each. After a few songs, we were ready to go, so I motioned to the waiter that... read more

Tired of over priced inauthentic fado places??? This is your best alternative. Delicious food (we came back twice) and very enjoyable fado. Every member of the staff (including the cook) came out to sing.

A guy invites us to his restaurant up the street and I knew it would not end well, but hey, let's give it a try. As soon as we sat down, the ham and cheese appeared and we were offered port. The food we ordered was to be honest, OK, but we did not ask for the tomato salad that... More

We went there after dinner, reading all the reviews. The fado is nice. We heard tree differtent fadista's en two very very pleasant to listen to. We had a coffee, a water and a table wine and had to pay 10 euro, which is a log for Lisbon, but maybe fair if you consider that the fadista's get a little... More

I am surprised to see all the negative reviews. My husband and I stumbled upon this restaurant on our first night in Lisbon while walking around the little streets trying to find a place to have dinner and this one caught our attention. The fado was great, the servers/ fado singers were very attentive, sure they want you to buy... More

This is a typical restaurant with a difference: waiter and waitress stop serving to sing the Fado, accompanied by two elderly gentleman musicians, plus another fantastic Fado singer. Come early, as it is always full, you just pay for food and drinks, no extra charge for the Fado, normal prices, incredible atmosphere

This is a simple restaurant with mostly non professional fado singers. Some are better than others, but that is part of the charm. One of the cooks sings, then one of the waiters, then a lady and a second lady who may be related to the owners, and finally a gentleman that was a really good singer. Yes, they will... More
