We went there last week just before Easter. Service is perfect, food is very good and as fado is included, it is priced similarly to other fado houses of this class. However i was disappointed with the fado singers. Firstly, they come out in very extended intervals. So the first singer came out at 9pm and as I realised the first singer is usually the youngest and with least of a voice. Second one came probably 40 min after the first one left and this lady had a presence and a voice and when she was getting the audience merry, she left unfortunately. 40 min later the third singer arrived and although she must have been the most experienced fado singer of them all, her voice unfortunately showed evident signs of years of smoking with no resonance at all. When this lady finished her show, it was already midnight, we felt it's time to call it a night. Overall a lovely ambience, many Portuguese in the audience which is always a good sign, and more fun because they typically will join in (and already started to join in the song with the second singer). If you are more interested in the dinner than in fado, then it's the place for you. But if you really want to hear great voices, then probably not.
