Go for the Fado! This small restaurant seats about 30. It is family operated. Musicians included the son, Pedro, on Portuguese Bass, a guest classical guitarist the night we were there, Mother, Alexandra, (also the greeter), Silvia, her daughter (also the waitress) and daughter-in-law, Sofia, who appears from the kitchen. All know their parts well, both serving and singing. Sometimes two more heads show through the kitchen window to join in a chorus and sometimes the audience is invited to join in song or clapping. I would say they de-emphasized the soulful longing of Fado in favour of some lighter fare for tourists. A good introduction if you are not familiar with Fado. Given that the main attraction was the Fado, the food was satisfactory. We had a very tasty pureed caldo verde and a good espetada (skewered steak) (but not outstanding). We had taken the prix fixe feeling the restaurant might be better prepared for this given the required co-ordination with the show. The night we were there they ran out of their usual house wine and did not hesitate to provide an apparently better alternative. Reservations are advised.
