This was an absolutely amazing experience. As soon as we walked in, we felt like we were long lost family. The owner and his wife are the waiter and cook. They make everyone in this small restaurant feel like they are all friends sharing a joyful experience. After dinner, which was extremely good, all the plates are cleared. The cook, owner, goes into another room and emerges dressed up to sing. The owner (whose name I have forgotten) sits down with another musician and for the next two house puts on an authentic and wonderful Fado performance with his wife singing and 2 guest performers. This was the best experience we had in Lisbon and we would recommend it to anyone. A reservation several days or a week in advance is recommended. Several people were turned away.
