I'd read that this is not the greatest restaurant as far as food is concerned but the hotel recommended it for the fado. Prices are at least double what you pay elsewhere but on the other hand you get good fado performances so you have...More

We had a really good night there. Food was quite good - my wife's sole was as good as we have ever had. My steak was good and the bread etc kept us happy. The service was efficient and friendly and the Fado was great....More

Don't go save you money and time terrible place. We spent a fortune and the food had no taste, they placed items on our table without asking and charged, which is illegal. Music was awful, never again

The singers are average to good, but the song selection is tailored to be "up-tempo," presumably to cater to tourists' tastes. In fact their most lively song with audience participation encouraged, turns out to be a paean to the restaurant itself, with a recurring chorus...More

Fado is such a beautiful Portuguese tradition. The talent musicians are not served well by this establishment. I married into a Portuguese family. It pains me that unknowing travels will accept a meal at this restaurant as "typical." The food is inedible.P
