We found this place on a walk around Porto and booked the Fado show that day. It was just delightful. The guitarists were superb and the singer exuded charm. She did some narration in English and Portuguese- enough to get the sense of what she was singing about. It was just right - excellent performance In an intimate setting. Highly recommend.

The show was amazing! We are students and wanted to feel a little Portuguese culture. Well, that was a big success here! The first half they played some slow beautiful Fado, and the second half it was more up tempo and we could clap along. We also drank some port. Very worth it!!

The singer and the musicians were incredible good. She - the signer - even got us to participate, singing "lalala", which was a great moment of sharing between the participants and with the performers. The glass of port in the middle was also much appreciated. We highly recommend this show!

We attended a 6pm concert on May 13, 2022 and were extremely disappointed. The musicians (especially the one playing the portuguese guitar) were mediocre and the lady singer plain, to say the least. I don't pretend to be expert on fado but I can tell the difference with what we heard at the casa da Marinquinhas two days before. In addition to that, we came to listen to Portuguese music, not to endure an audience singing along off-key and clapping off-rhythm. Small consolation the glass of Porto wine was good...

Great activity when you have limited time but really want to have a feeling of Fado, while enjoying a good glass of Porto.

The singer's voice is enchanting and the musicians very talented. The songs include some joyful ones.
In addition, you can admire a nice collection of Portugese and other types of guitars.

We had a lovely experience at the Fado show in Porto's Casa da Guitarra.
The musicians we're so professional- beautiful guitar playing- and the singer, Carla, was excellent.
She was a brilliant singer but also an entertainer and there was a great mixture of solemn Fado and more upbeat music- she made it fun.
I would definitely recommend this venue.
All of the staff were welcoming and the walls are decorated with interesting instruments.
We also had a lovely glass of port in the interval.

We were impressed by the traditional fado concert as it was so emotional! The band was really good as well as the singer as I could feel what the song was about even without understanding Portuguese. They also gave us a glass of Port wine which was very good. I highly recommend this place for an authentic fado concert.

As a guitar player, I was interested to see the techniques used to play this unique and beautiful form of music called Fado. I didn't understand the lyrics but the emotion conveyed by the singer made clear what the songs were about. It was an extremely enjoyable hour. And the glass of Port served at intermission was delicious!

The fado show at Casa da Guitarra was incredible. It was one of the best things we did while in Portugal. The artists were exceptional and our family loved experiencing passion they exhibited. I didn't know what to expect and we were truly blown away.

A very memorable experience. We wanted to hear some Fado and someone mentioned the Casa da Guitarra performances. I went along expecting to hear something produced for the tourists - and found an extraordinary performance from people who obviously loved and cared for their music and tradition. Superb playing of guitar and Portuguese (16 string) guitar with the lovely singing voice of Carla Cortez.
It is always great to hear musicians at the top of their game. It was also good to see a music student invited to play with them on stage - important that traditions and musicianship are passed on to the next generation.
