A tiny and cozy fado bar full of atmosphere. Bar will be closed for a performance of 3 fado songs every hour at night. Don't expect a prompt service as only 2 to 3 people are working. Do come here for a drink and have...More

Thanks to all previous reviews on trip advisor, we went and had the time of our lives. It was classic fado. Just what we were looking for!

Amazing place, very small. So best to come in a bit earlier. Very authentic, we met lots of interesting people there the night we went. The fado singers are the best I've seen in all the bars we've visited, really get to your soul.

It's good to know that this is a Fado club, not really a restaurant. Table reservations are for those who will order food, mostly simple, like plates of ham and cheese, and bread, something to go with your sangria or wine or beer. It's small...More

We made reservations months ahead through email - and I'm glad we did bc we got the best seats in the house directly in front of the fado singers and people were standing if they didn't have reservations. We got there at 8 and the...More

Although our first visit to lisbon,Tasca do Chico has the appearance and feel of a genuine cultural experience. The room is tight with people, the performers are close, and their singing heartfelt. The Accompanying musicians were excellent, and they played all night as varying singers...More

We were looking for a place to listen to some Fado and we found this one online. It didn't disappoint. They let you go inside and when the performance is about to start, they close the doors to the street to avoid interruptions. Performances are...More

Our friend recommended this fado club to us. It is very small, crowded and its very hot inside. Food is bad, vine is OK but the best thing is fado and guitar players. So, if you do not care about food and you only want...More

Bairro Alto, Bica & Cais do Sodre
Enjoy a cocktail, discover a jazz club, hit the dance
floor or simply grab a beer and catch up with your
friends in the street: Bairro Alto, Bica and Cais do
Sodré are the core of it all. Amazing rooftops,
restaurants, cafes, bars, art galleries, museums and
theaters abound. Start off by admiring the river from
the Santa Catarina belvedere, have a cocktail at
PARK's rooftop bar, try a typical Portuguese steak, or

Yes, they do take reservations. Depending on the size of your group, you may well share a table, which we find quite fun! Enjoy!

If you love music and want to listen to it then this is the place. Don't expect to be able to hold a conversation though as you will be "shushed" and asked to be quiet while the performers are performing. Quite right... More
