We were glad we went to the performance and got a sense of what Fado is, but I thought the performers were quite average, and I thought the performance could have done more to present what Fado is all about. The musicians were excellent and...More

We went here because it was so close to where we were staying. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't very engaging either. I can see why other reviewers complained about the sterile environment. But the performers make a big difference. We saw three flamenco performances...More

Great to see the show, understand what Fado is and it's place in Portuguese life. Musicians and singers were excellent. It earned a check mark on my list of things to do but doubt a second Fado show is in my future

First time for us to enjoy Fado. We have been disappointed by the lack of atmosphere that Fado needs to make the audience feel the deep sentiments link to Fado: nostalgia, sadness. Artists are of good quality. We think that it is mission impossible to...More

The singers were wonderful! The guitar players were amazing! Some songs were sad or nostalgic. Other songs were lively & upbeat. We, the audience, sang along - a basic "la, la, la." A charming & must see experience!

Total tourist rip off. 17euros for what felt like a cheap 50 mins. performance. The male singer was poor. We saw street performers that were way better.

An absolute MUST in Lisbon! Excellent food and service, authentic Fado singers, very emotional and passionate.We walked to restaurant and took taxi back. Views nearby are spectacular at sunset. Get there earlier than reservation or you may lose spot!

We went here to listen to some fado. It truly was very soulful and emotive. The guitar players and the artistes were in synch and even got the audience involved. Highly recommend this. It is everyday at 7 pm and takes about 50 minutes. Well...More

The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally,
"squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers
plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can
stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its
streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and
viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the
famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa,
having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used
