When we arrived, a performance was already on. The staff ensured we understood to be very quiet and wait near the back until it was over (most Fado songs and sets are fairly short). Within 5-8 min, after already realizing we were hearing some wonderful Fado, we were seated. The prices are high IF people think they're ONLY paying for the food. But I wonder how much the people who've complained about the food prices here have paid for concert tickets? There were 3 different singers who performed several 12-18 min sets each and then finished with all 3 performing a few songs. It was fabulous. The food was good and the wine, though expensive was great. The service was very good and the whole staff clearly conveyed to the patrons that we were all (staff included) to be quiet and pay attention to the performances and they were also often the first to applaud at the end of many songs. Nobody asked for money for the performers after, that's the whole point of the higher food prices. It's built in. At a cheaper place, people talked away, disturbing us and the performers. And, the staff at the cheaper place didn't have the thought to ask the noisy patrons to be quiet, I almost did.
