Highly recommend coming here for Fado! We asked around for Fado recommendations - from random waiters and cafe baristas in Lisbon - and everyone said Tasca do Chico. Unlike the other restaurants, you're not required to order an over-priced dinner. You can order tapas or just drinks if you want. Intimate and laid-back. Tips: get their early. the staff at the Barrio Alto location are much friendlier than the Alfama location.

My wife and I simply chanced upon this fantastic little Pub/snackery (as with the Museu do Fado virtually opposite) as we were meandering through the narrow cobbled Alfama streetlets on the way back to our hotel. Somehow Joao Carlos himself caught our eye and ushered us inside for an unbelievable nights` entertainment. The place was cosy, warm and bunged; drinks on the more expensive side (as against which, no cover charge) and people were still arriving and having freshly-grilled lingüiça (sausage) after 10pm. The singers, and especially the musicians, were excellent. Superb; only too sad that capacity will inevitably prove restrictive - but if it was a bigger venue, the atmosphere would suffer. Do try it; if you`re in luck, you`ll also be VERY contented!

We did not book so after some begging we managed to sit and wait for the performance. The owner not real accomodating but the personnel very nice, simple food but good music..very much enjoyed. Be careful they have 2 sites one in Barrio and one in Alfama.

Intense, intimate fado as it should be. Loved it! Even though drinks were good, the athmosphere was something so much more. Highly recommend!

Ok, it's a very small place, you better go early to take a place but it's totally worth it!

Great fado, great snacks and atmosphere..
You should try Sangria, Cheese, Chouriço and olives.. And a good price!
