  • We regret not having found the octopus salad that was said of Octopus for the entries, which eventually leave us with some reservations about what would come after. .. surprised we found excellent fries, really good bacalhau à zé do pipo and cheeks look fabulous. I can't say the same of the squid stuffed that don't leave much to be desired. We have proved all the desserts, Orange pie left good memories! A dinner washed down good music! We recommend the area without any reservation!

  • Ideal place to delve into the Fado, Portugal's preeminent musical expression. It is a good visit to supplement going to see some show.

  • It is not possible to visit Portugal and not to visit this place,especially if you are a fan of Fado.

  • Excellent place to see, feel and listen to Fado. A must for anyone wishing to understand it a little bit more. They also have listening rooms to explore some of the past and current fado artists.
  • tudo lindo no museu
  • Went u were today, while learning about fado was interesting, the real highlight for us was the art. Only a few artists, but many of their pieces that we really loved. Sent here on a buy one get one free ticket from Castelo S. Jorge..
  • WE FOUND THIS PLACE AFTER LUNCH AND ENTERED FOR FREE (BEFORE 2PM). TIDY AND INFORMATIVE. GOOD TO LEARN A BIT MORE ABOUT FADO ALTHOUGH IF YOU ARE REALLY INTERESTED IT MIGHT BE BETTER TO EXPERIENCE A LIVE SHOW.
  • Fun tourist attraction, beautiful displays and music all around.
