We were originally excited to go to this restaurant based on a Fodor’s recommendation. It was stated as one $, meaning it was meant to be good value, good food, and inexpensive. None of that was true. We called and made a reservation as recommended....More
I found a suggestion for this place on the Lonely Planet and decided to visit. Nowhere the guide suggested advance reservation, nor on the website I found any option unless digging later in the pages only in Portuguese.
I was met at the door but...More
The acoustics are amazing! We went to dinner elsewhere before and arrived at 9:15 for the 9:30 show which gave us a great seat. It was 10 euros a person and included a welcome drink. The show lasted until 11:30-it was divided into 3 sets...More

Can’t beat the ambiance of Fado in an century old church :) Food and wine was excellent although expensive; staff very friendly, and performance, especially the Portugese guitar player, outstanding. The only downside is that there would be a break every few songs and impact...More
A great little place! Built as a synagogue in the 1300’s, converted to a Christian church, then abandoned until the current owners turned it into a music venue. This small venue is an intimate spot to listen to live music. They do serve food, but...More

The host explained to us that there is a €10 cover charge for the Fado show and you have two choices a...More
