I booked two seats months before, and because of the late concert time (9:45 pm), I specifically asked if it was possible to just have dessert and drinks, not a full dinner. I was told no problem. We were very excited about hearing fado in...More

Terrific Fado music in a small converted chapel. The musicians were amazing and their passion for the music infectious. We took the dinner option which we considered good value but you could also take a cheaper drink option. A fantastic night! Be sure to book...More
