I can only confirm the bad comments: terrible food and overpriced. Some waiters are ok, but they know already that nobody will give them a tip. Next time I should check the comments first...

This was the worst restaurant experience in our stay nearby. Absolutely the poorest service, mediocre food served lukewarm, but a nice setting to lure you in. The waiter ignored us for quite a while, then insisted that the only water available was (expensive) bottled water,...More

We only came here as the Fado place opposite in the road was fully booked. The restaurant is nice inside, great location, traditional decoration and with Fado music, but only a 15 min performance every hour. Food was ok, but compared with another restaurants I've...More

This is a perfect example of what I would call a tourist trap, someone nice is standing outside the restaurant to lure you in. Other good restaurants nearby are packed and so you thought dinner and fado, how bad could it be? It was bad,...More

We went for our final meal in Lisbon and came away disappointed. The Fado is good. No complaints at all there - talented players with good singing. The atmosphere / table dressing is also ok.... Hence two stars and not one! The problem is the...More

Inedible steak, overpriced, bad service. Fado guitarists were good but very short set, singer OK voice but volume way too loud for small space. Definite tourist trap, wish we had read reviews before going!

Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and,
of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music.
The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755
destroyed most of the city but the contiguous
neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained
standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent
Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the
Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of
