We got convinced by a taxi driver that brought us directly to this expensive trap. The good was just ok, nothing fancy or particularly good. Regular beer 6€ the small bottle, they charged 90€ us for 2 beers and 2 dishes. Complete scam, avoid this...More

Other than the price, can't fault anything there, good service, nice portions size and OK taste. Question is if everything is OK, why should one pay so much when there are so many more affordable and same level restaurants in the area?

Excellent Fado evening with several singers through the dinner. The food is ok, but not the reason to visit, it's rather the Fado experience and the fact that locals go here. All in all a great evening.

The restaurant is amid the bairro alto and it is named after a legend of fados. The prices are very high but with the dining you are paying for the fado show. There are two fadistas that have been there for quite some time and...More
