I have lived in Portugal for four years and I have seen Fado in a number of Fado houses as well as friends´ homes. It is a style of music unique to Lisbon and should not be missed. This taverna, however is one to avoid. My first clue should have been that there were more empty tables than full. Then... More

I was suggested this restaurant by friends who live in Lisbon. We were looking for a place where to have dinner and listen to Fado. I was also told the two don't come together very often. The food was simple and good; the Fado was also very enjoyable. What was not, were the prices. I ordered such simple fare as... More

Fado House with very typical great Fado singers with exceptional service and hospitality. If you are in a Fado mood don't loose this. I went there with some friends last week and it was just wonderful !!

I went to the place with a discount coupon, so I had a fixed menu. It corresponded to a medium quality with princes in a range of medium to high. The night was with intervals of eating and 3 songs, then again a long period for talking and eating and more 3 songs.

I went to this restaurant with a big group (with reservation and fixed menu). The restaurant has a terrible space-organisation and is not comfortable. But the worst is the food, the quantity of food is a joke (not enough even for tasting). I am local and I went there for the fist time, for sure that I will not visit... More

This was my first trip to Portugal and my husband wanted to take me to a Fado house. We happened upon EstaFado by chance and we were not disappointed. We enjoyed our last night in Portugal with family, good food, and wonderful song. What an amazing night.

Thanks to the warm hospitality of the owner Hugo, I was very lucky to be able to have some drinks and enjoy the fado show in Estafado in 16th September because the restaurant was fully booked and entirely packed that night, which I assume is very common given its fame and reputation in Lisbon. I didn't have the chance to... More

We have been to several fado clubs in Lisbon and really enjoyed EstaFado. It is small and doesn't cater to tourist groups (though tourists are very welcome). The evening we were there, four very good fado singers performed even though only two were originally planned - it is not unusual at some clubs for fado singers to show up unannounced... More

With a group of friends, we were suggested to have supper at Esta Fado. Food was excellent. The restaurant is very well decored and the Fado experience was just amazing. We could feel every emotion as the singers and musicians were standing at a meter in front of us. Hugo, the owner was very kind and friendly. He made us... More
