If you like fado without being served expensive plates of shrimps,- that you have not asked for, being out all night, listening to fado within long intervals,- this is where you go. The music was great and the singers had clear voices. A very sympatric...More

I loved this show, it started off as mellow and soft spoken but quickly turned into a passionate and mind blowing story, the actors and singers portraying their art snd talent beautifully.Would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Lisbon.

An enjoyable one hour show; the guitarists were excellent and the singers decent. The show takes place in a small theatre with rows of chairs; drinking and eating is not permitted. It is definitely aimed more at tourists than locals and they tried to involve...More

We didn't want to eat and listen, so we went to this lovely theatre and spent 45 minutes listening to Fado music, the music of Lisbon and the sea. Two great guitarists and two singers. We enjoyed it, expanded ourselves and went out again, all...More

It was our first time there. The singers are very good and it only lasts 50 minutes. Starts at 19.00 so it’s perfect because it’s the right time for dinner afterwards. A must if you are in Chiado.

If you just want to hear good Fado music without paying for a meal, this is the place to go. Seats are not numbered, so first in first gets, so get there at least 15-30 minutes before the start time. We were lucky to be...More

The show is only 45 min long and to be honest I thought it would be commercialized with you going in and out and you won’t be able to connect with the musician and singers. Boy was I wrong, the performers and singers are so...More

We had literally nothing to compare this to, but really enjoyed the 50 min show. The singers were extremely talented, as were the guitarists. Song choices were more upbeat, but still very soulful. Can see how it may be considered cheesy or touristy, as they...More
