We arranged our visit here through our AirBnB host Ricardo. My wife is vegetarian and Ricardo made sure the restaurant could accommodate us. Turns out they provided a great vegetarian meal. The waiters were easy going and fun. The food great and the music wonderful.

A tiny bit on the expensive side but the food was top notch and the music was divine. I would definitely recommend for the music and also for a great night out.

Fado is not a very well know Porto tradition. However, its not only a tradition from Lisbon or Coimbra. There are 'fados' about Porto and its people. And Fado is also related to some traditions from the Porto University community. The restaurant is small, the...More

Nao e o mellor sitio para ir con criancas. E mais un restaurante para almorzar con amigos. De todos modos pode levar, a comida esta ben e o prezo tamben.
