I can’t think of one redeeming characteristic of this restaurant except for the good fado singing. Horrible service. Bad food—although the seafood pallella at our neighboring table looked delicious. There has to be a better dado restaurant to visit.

Esquina de Alfama is a tiny local restaurant serving local food along with Fado singing. The evening was the highlight of my trip to Lisbon. I particularly liked the homey atmosphere, the food was delicious, and the Fado singers who were exceptional. After starting off...More

Yes, this place is a tourist trap, but so what. If you want to enjoy fado music, one has to go to a tourist trap, just as if you want to hear country music in Nashville or jazz in New Orleans. The difference here is...More

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
