For a "dinner theater" (fado) the food and service were very good. The sea bass was excellent, the fish stew very good. All in all, a wonderful way to experience the food and fado of Portugal!!!!

I was part of a large group booking dining at Senhor Vinho. We had been recommended the venue by our agency. Senhor Vinho is a very typical Fado music venue. Fado is a deeply important part of Portuguese culture. Respect is expected whenever a singer...More

This place was suggested by a local acquaintance! My experience with live Fado was limited however it was with great expectations that a group of friends decided to attend. The place is small and simple, but very cosy. The service was good and the food...More

Fado usually starts around 20:30 so should be fine for your kids.
