Timpanas is a restaurant with excellent food although the venue is really dedicated to showcasing the music traditional to Lisbon and the music and dance traditional to the countryside near Lisbon. The artists are world class musicians, singers and dancers and recordings of their music/singing or videos of their dance & music are available for sale at the restaurant. Of course I bought one for each musician and singer. I had to bring them back with me.
Interestingly the food and wine is wonderful and reasonable in cost (actually cheap if you consider that it includes the entertainment). The clams "Bulhao do papo" just melted in your mouth and the sauce was wonderful for dipping their hearty bread. They have an extensive wine list but there's no need to fret over a selection. The house recommended wine was delicious. Don't miss Timpanas when you're in Lisbon or you'll miss out on an important component of the Portuguese culture.
