Authentic Fado experience

Went here with my husband to hear Fado music. We were told when going to hear good Fado music not to go for the food and I would say that is true. The music was excellent and it is a very intimate restaurant. You will probably need a reservation; the music starts around 9 and I would go... read more

Location was good. That's it. The food was nothing out of the ordinary and highly overpriced compared to other restaurants and it took about 50 min to get 4 tapas. The octopus (main course) we ordered was overcooked and the waitress said that it was "the way they cook it": the tenticles were so burned that they tasted like nothing.... More

We had the most amazing fish platter ever! Delicious is not a sufficient word to describe the food here! We stayed outside on the narrow street getting the vibe of the old town. A very pleasant experience! We will always come back! Compliments to the chef!

Four of us had lunch at this restaurant, inside rather than in the courtyard. Both areas were pleasant and airy - and quiet because it is located on a pedestrianised alleyway off the main street. A few smokers outside if that worries you. It was all good without being outstanding; the service was a little hesitant at times but that... More

we came here late at night to listen to fado - it's a tiny little bar with very little sitting room, and they have fado later at night. SO worth it - the night we were there, the world famous Fado singer, Mariza, made a special appearance and sang. It was hauntingly beautiful, and definitely a treat, as the locals... More

The service is very good and friendly. You will get all necessary recommendations and explanation about the food served. As we were a bit cold after Cabo da Roca we ordered tea, that costed us 5.60 euros for 2 people!!!! After 1 starter and main dish for 2 persons (arroz with seafood, it's a traditional Portuguese dish, served for 2)... More

Well, they try, a bit. But Sintra at lunchtime is heaving with tourists so they don't really try very much! Cod fritters were very disappointing and shrimp in aioli ditto. Nice glass of Alentejo wine though and a kind waiter who carefully found somewhere for us to sit.

This was recommended by our B & B host. It's in a pleasant alley off the main street so there was no traffic noise. Food was very good - I had the vegetarian option and it was excellent. I thought the prices were good too. The only problem from our perspective was the guitarist who was serenading the outside tables.... More
