If you love tradition, actually even if you don't, you should try to listen to Fado. This is a nice, cosy place. We even made friends from Turkey and Austria, as we were next to each other.

This small family run restaurant is a fantastic. A fun evening with plenty of food, wine and great music. The highlight for me was the 12 string guitarist... an amazing talent.

Marina and Duarte are truly amazing - the hospitality, the food, the atmosphere, the fado music. Everything was way beyond out expectations. It was like being in a Portuguese home and really connected with both Marina and Duarte. Will definitely be back. Highly highly recommended.More

What could we potentially have done wrong to deserve such a bad fado experience. While the food and service was good it took until 11.00pm to start the fado. Or something that should be the fado. The two guitar players asked the public to start...More

It was tasty and it was fun. The food was traditional and copious. The owners/performers were wonderful. A tiny and cosy place, but not too small. I recommend it!

Description
On off the least pretentious of Lisbon's Fado restaurants is also one of its finest. Hosts Duarte Santos and Ana Marina treat guests as family and the homely ambiance is warming and inviting. The homemade gastronomy is noted for its textures and flavours and generous portions, with the seafood cataplana (stew) a much-lauded feast. The menu is limited, but here it's all about the quality of the food. As for the entertainment, this is local fado at its most authentic -- the singers and musicians have known each other for years, and the performance is heartfelt and genuine. Quite often, diners are invited to join in which makes the evening truly memorable.
