  • Disappointed by the offer of the neighborhood of Bairro Alto in Lisbon for Fado that became a "tourism industry", we hoped, in conclusion our Portuguese in Porto 15 find a place where to feast upon our ears. The office of tourism of the city we indicated this address, for lack of better there have price 2 places (10 euros each, not prohibitive either..). Are left at the intermission of the recital of an hour, after 6 songs, after having swallowed our glass of port offered (...). 2 guitarists not really to the point with a charming singer with a voice "blah". "Well dressed" but low-quality provision, a trap at toutouristes what! Fado deserves much better!

  • A dream place for good amateurs to music in general and especially for "collectors" of stringed instruments. They are handcrafted gems that will delight fans of the classical instruments. Staff friendly, efficient and knowledgeable about the material with which they work. Very good programming of activities. Definitely a place to visit if in Oporto and the music you like.

  • We fell in love with this shop in Porto. We were treated very nicely and had expert help in buying a beautiful Mandolin. Now that we are back in the states we are looking for a Mandolin teacher so we can learn to play this great instrument. It really is a great place to visit and learn about these locally made instruments.
  • You'll not find a cheap bargain here, but the choice of local instruments and the friendly welcome make up for that. Grab any guitarra you want and strum away. Impromptu jam sessions do not seem uncommon.
  • To organise an evening touching fado performance live from intermezzato a great shot of the Harbour to try
