Very good food, the fish was just excellent and the tapas also. Laura is as kind as possible. Father, son and guest were good singers/players. We really enjoyed our Fado dinner!

Arrive early (around 7) to enjoy food and see how the owner starts singing Fado and then others from different generations come in to sing further songs. Amazing experience of hospitality and local culture.

Situated in old Alana. Really nice, local and authentic atmosphere. Great hospitality and tasty food as well as fair prices. Live music (fado). Sea bass and goat cheese is recommended.

A lovely, cosy, small (just 26 covers), wonderfully authentic Portuguese restaurant, with tasty food, great service, and live singing! Highly recommended.

The atmosphere was great and the fado singers genuine. Even the host joined in, after he had a few beers to loosen his vocal chords. The food was average, but the overall experience very worthwhile.

I’m not sure they take bookings but it’s great fun to buy a drink and queue in the street talking to fellow waiting diners!

I don't think you can book online. Be there at 8 p.m. and you will be able to get a table and have a bite before the music starts. All the fado places start early and close at about midnight. I was there two different days... More
