We very much liked the music, the service and the food. We had just come from Lisbon and Coimbra where the fado was excellent and everyone was quiet and respectful during the performance. I remember that at each place the person introducing the musicians and...More

Good food. Lovely music. Overall very enjoyable. Pricey compared to other Porto places with similar food, but of course you get a small concert.

Amazing people, really friendly, smiley, and very chatty and helpful. Amazing food as well, we had some young lamb and it was melting in the mouth. Fado was pretty nice, the atmosphere created was pretty exceptional. An evening well spent.

As other reviews have said, the reason for choosing this place is the fado, which is really excellent, rather than the food, which, though generously portioned and perfectly edible, is less exceptional. Service is charming. Yes, it's not the cheapest place in town, especially if...More

Do you have Fado show during lunch time and are Fado shows daily? Is there an entry fee or additional charges over food. We are a group of 8, do we need to book in advance?

As someone who visited recently I don't think there is a Fado show at lunchtime. There were no entry fee or extra charges. I would definitely pre-book. I hope this helps.
