We took tuna salad and steak off grill. The salad was rotten and the streak was awiful. They didnt't ask us how we wanted our steak, and tuna salad was just tuna with rotten salad and egg. Avoid at all cost.

All singers and the musicians were absolutely great. Sadly, I can not say the same about the food, or the service. The cod is really chewy and far too oily, the starter mushrooms way too salty, the side rice completely tasteless and the Francencihna swimming...More

Offering a nice Fado show is a good thing, however, the show has been shadowed by a poor service and a poor dinner. Obviously, they serve enough, even too much, food, but they'd rather opt for quality instead of quantity (Starters were basic, soup was...More
