This place is very traditional in Coimbra. You should go there if you're visiting the city, you won't regret. You can have dinner and drink good wines while enjoying Fado, everynight. It's better to book a table.

Had a really nice Fado evening, even though I unfortunately don't speak Portoguese ( I understand very little). The place is quite hidden from the main street, but definitely worth a visit for a drink and some music.

Fado for locals. The native music of Portugal, with which guitarist and singers thrill the audience. It is great to see how the audience keeps silent, hears, feels, and hums the chorus ... Highly recommended!

This is where to go to avoid the tourist orientated Fado. Its a little bar with odd decoration, it felt like sitting inside a giraffe - if you visit you will see what I mean. They do basic food, its cheap and tasty, and goes...More
