What a wonderful experience. I had heard Fado forty years ago the first time I was in Lisbon and was stunned by the beauty and emotion of the genre. When I prepared to return for the first time since then, I knew that I wanted to hear it again. I researched many places and and from the enthusiastic reviews on Trip Advisor made a reservation. The experience was so heartfelt that I returned a few days later and was once again greeted with the warmth and personal attention that I had had before. What an unusual feeling it is to be remembered by name and greeted as an old friend. Duarte and Marina are family as soon as you walk in.
I was hoping to return a third time but had to return early because of an emergeny. I visited four different fado experiences while I was in Lisbon. None could come close to what I felt there. If you are ever in Lisbon, please do yourself a favor and go. Make a reservation. It is a very small place (24 or 25 guests maximum). If you have never had the experience of hearing Fado you will be hooked for life after a visit. If you know and love Fado you will fall in love all over again. If you need to know anything about Duarte and Marina, just notice that they respond to every review on this site; how much more personal can you expect. Thank you Duarte, thank you Marina. I will never forget you.
