The Fado is nice and the food is nice as well but very very very overpriced. A normal 3-4€ bottle of wine at the store costs 30-40€ at the restaurant while a soup costs 11-12€. You can draw your own conclusions.

Don’t be fooled by the crowded restaurant and an incorrect time out review u to thinking this place is anything but bad. The food is bland and underwhelming we left embarrassed we wasted a night in this place. Avoid at all costs.

Easiest way is just to call restaurant. It caters for tourists and all staff seemed to speak good English.
