Service is good, people are really Friendly. The food can sometimes take a while but it's definitely worth the wait.

“Awful, not going back”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014 via mobile

Long wait for a standard Portuguese cod dish; when it arrived (on cold plates), the fish was overcooked and tasted bad. We couldn't eat it.

“A place not to return”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

After ordering my favorite portuguese dish, Bacalhau a Bras, I tried it and realized it was not okay (the fish did not taste fine and it had a lot of fish bones). I did not eat anything from my plate, since it was not good enough to eat.
The waiter apologized, however they charged me the meal I did not eat.
Terrible food and disrespect towards client, makes me sure I will not come back.

“Really cosy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

I just went to dine in O Fado and I have to say; for a reasonable price you had good food and a good atmosphere. What more could you want?
