Excellent place for a cozy dinner with a partner or friends to listen to traditional Portugese Fado. Even if you don’t understand the words you’ll get the emotion behind the songs. Make sure to get a reservation because place is tiny and gets filled quickly....More

Granted, the food is very expensive - it is good, but certainly not worth that money. An unpleasant surprise they charged us a complete menu even for the kids, no warning. But given the fact that you pay for the show, I’d say it is...More
