You will be forced to forgive the ridiculously priced tiny little mineral water, crappy wine list, overpriced crappy starters, average main course at fine dining prices and friendly but mostly absent service. Your chair will torture you. If you are over 6 foot you will have to stoop everywhere. All this is true. But you will still leave happy. The fado is just that good. And the owner takes it very seriously. It is a cultural patrimony proudly protected and your eyes will leak. And you will be enchanted. Just be prepared to spend around 80 Euro a head for the privilege. I would again.

The music by the owners is excellent. Service is attentive. Menu is imaginative. It was a very special night with 3 fado singers, intimate atmosphere, and, unlike most fado clubs, very good food.

We ate here in recently as a suggestion from an aquaitence. Loved the singers and atmosphere, small but quaint. The food was very overpriced, which you can somewhat justify since there is no charge for the performances. However, 3.50 for a small bottle of water and 15 euros for a tiny portion of shrimp appetizer is crazy! (that's more than $20 Canadian for about 8 small shrimp!). And no restaurant should deny tap water if a customer requests it, saying we don't have that (sure...then what comes out of the tap in the washroom?! Lol). We had an older, shorter woman as our waitress who appeared polite at times, but would seem to get easily annoyed when asked questions about the menu and rolled her eyes on more than one occasion. Luckily, we enjoyed the musical performances more than the service or inflated prices.

We had been looking forward to this experience at what the owners say is the oldest fado and probably most authentic fado in Lisbon. While the fado entertainment is advertised as being free there is a minimum charge of 30 euros per person. While I was happy to splash out on this on our penultimate night in Lisbon we really expected a high quality of food. The reality is that eating out in Lisbon is generally cheap. You can get a very nice meal in Alfama for 15 euros or less. The restaurant has a capacity of about 60 people and it does present itself both from the outside and interior as being a pretty cool place to go - even though we were all squashed in like sardines- ironically. There were two waitresses to service the 60 customers and so there was a wait to be given the menu, invited to order a drink and our orders taken. I would say there is a heavy reliance on the tourist markets and the cruise ships which park almost across the road. There were three sessions of Fado each of which was about 4 songs. Three separate singers were accompanied by strings - one of which I believe is the restaurant owner. We ordered a shared entree - which was very nice - two main dishes, a bottle of the cheapest white wine and a bottle of water. The total cost was 88 euros. I had the cheapest main there was - baked monk fish. It arrived complete with 4 tiny potatoes and some silver beat very nicely presented in a ball. The reality is that the meals were not of high value and not particularly delicious. In New Zealand dollars this meal cost us about $150 and in our view was very much over priced. Far better meals are available in Lisbon and the addition of the Fado did not do it for us. I think there are far ether options available. I believe the meals were simply a rip off and disappointing for Lisbon.

What a lovely evening. Sitting between a lovely Australian couple and two sweet Dutch ladies, we really enjoyed our last night in Lisbon. The food was excellent and the 5 musicians gave a very professional performance of Fado. The service was also excellent. Quite pricey 100 euros for two but you have to push the boat out once during a holiday. We loved it!
