If you want to have a fine evening with good food and original FADO you must try to visit Sr Fado in Lisboa. Make sure that you make your reservations early because only 24 people can be a guest in the restaurant. The food is...More

This was a fantastic experience. Intimate, engaging. I would highly recommend booking a visit/dinner here. The serving sizes were a little strange, and be warned, the port is quite expensive. We had a wonderful night.

We had quite a night at Sr Fado's. Food was terrific--especially the pork stew, which was incredible. Music was incredible. We especially loved bluesy-Nadja, the daughter. Be forewarned, though: dinner will run until nearly 11 PM, with the music starting then. Evening won't end until...More

Enjoyed the music more than the food to be honest. Amazing kid on Portugese guitar, and mother/ daughter sing beautifully. Other singers are impressive too, but don't expect to understand the lyrics if not Portugese. Food is catalpana or pork with rice.

For all Fado lovers, this typical family restaurant offers an insightful trip into the Portuguese cuisine & soul. It was great to listen various fado singers giving voice to so many different feelings, but mostly expressing their love for "bonita Lisboa". And the seafood Cataplana...More

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.
