“Great Fado experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

We did not book so after some begging we managed to sit and wait for the performance. The owner not real accomodating but the personnel very nice, simple food but good music..very much enjoyed. Be careful they have 2 sites one in Barrio and one in Alfama.

“Unforgettable fado night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Intense, intimate fado as it should be. Loved it! Even though drinks were good, the athmosphere was something so much more. Highly recommend!

“You won't find more typical than this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Ok, it's a very small place, you better go early to take a place but it's totally worth it!

Great fado, great snacks and atmosphere..
You should try Sangria, Cheese, Chouriço and olives.. And a good price!

“Best place for fado!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

It's one of the best place for the real fado.
You can sit if you find a place! Other wise you'll sted up and wait with a good glass of vinho branco o verde!!

“Fun Night with Fado”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

Not sure why this place is listed under restaurant. I would call it a bar with Fado music and some snacks perhaps.

That said, we went there on a Wednesday night having heard that it's one of the open mic nights. We had so much fun experiencing the traditional Portuguese music while being packed in like sardines.

We made an 8:30 reservation and showed up around 9. Thank goodness for the reservation, or we would probably be standing the whole night!
