“Excellent Fado, good food, obviously at a price”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

This is a very special place. Food and service are excellent, and the performance by the artists is amazing. I would recommend to arrive for an early dinner around 8.30 pm so that you have the chance to eat before the performances. Also, not the place to go with children as there has to be absolute silence during the performances and the place is rather small so nowhere to hide if you are not going to be silent. It is not cheap, but this is an experience worth paying for.

“First class food and Fado!”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

My wife and I visited Senhor Vinho on Saturday evening in March after considerable deliberation over which of the many Fado venues to try in Lisboa. We could not have asked for a better experience. We were actually the first in the restaurant to be seated at 8:30 (under the impression that the singing was going to start at 9:00....it actually started closer to 10:00 on this evening). Reservations are a must. Try to get a table towards the middle of the room where the performers are located. Settle in for a long evening of great food and unforgettable music. The performers will come out (usually 4-5 singers during the evening) for 4-5 songs each (roughly 15 minutes total) with about 30 minutes in between performances. So if you get there after the first performance, there will still be many more following. The performers - musicians and singers alike - were everything that I had hoped for in a Fado performance. Couldn't have asked for a better evening!

Came here with a group and spent six hours with live music, delicious food and the most helpful staff you can ever ask for. A must for every Lusabon visitor! Highly recommendable!

“Essential stop for real Fado lovers”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

The food may not be the best in Lisbon - you are probably safest having the set menu - but the Fado singing certainly is. This restaurant is a must for Fado lovers, but book well in advance, especially at week ends.

“A perfect Fado experience”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

We would like to see Lisbon Fado and had made some resorts.
Our choice was Sr. Vinho because it looked like a good combination of quality Fado and a good dinner. And it certainly lived up to our expectations.
The Fado music was in the top - there were four different performances each with three numbers - and they were all really good and of high quality - fantastic.
The meal - it was excellent and there was a great selection of wines and and if you want value for money is the house wine recommendable.
Eating and performance went up to a higher level. The service was also in the top and the food was served with respect to performances by a court in each break. There was a real good atmosphere, all in all a really good overall experience.
And the price: Overall, with both performances and meal it was definitely reasonable
