There is no doubting that Club de Fado does attract the tourists of Lisbon, but it also attracts the locals too. When we were there we met a local music teacher who said that he always brought friends of his to Club de Fado to experience quality Fado music. He told us that we were really experiencing the professionals. And Im sure that we were. We really, really enjoyed our night there. The staff are friendly, professional and unpretencious. At various times throughout the evening, a red light lights goes up and the rest of the lights go down ... and then Mario P (fantastic Portugese guitar player and owner) and various other beautiful friends come and sing fado in the middle of the restaurant. Yes, the prices are expensive for lisbon, but the food is good quality. We were lucky enough to meet the owner Mario - who was a really nice chap... after Club de Fado we went to the Brazilian bar directly opposite and danced the night away with 3 euro caiprenhias! Nice... Go there ... its a great experience. If you dont want to pay the money for the meal - the waiter told us that we could go another night - only later in the evening - 11pm onwards and sit and have a drink and listen to the fado - excellent
