We had a nice meal, a bottle of wine and listened to FADO music for 41 Euros. The female singer, Linda, had a lovely voice. The male singer seemed new and was perhaps in training. They were frustrated at one point with the talking level...More

Like others we were enticed by a nice young lady promising Fado. This place is a tourist trap of the worst kind. The fado is ok, but it consists of 10 mins fado followed by 30 mins 'break', basically the singers are doing the rounds....More

We went here because we wanted to experience Fado on our last night in Lisbon. First, they pack everyone in, so if you don't like sitting right next to someone you don't know, this won't be for you. It took a very long time for...More
