I’m reviewing the guitar store this time. We visited the guitar store two years ago when it was located near the river AND went to the Fado across the street. Both were EXCELLENT. Today we visited the guitar store in their new location near Cedofieta...More

But it has a classy air, this shop. I will one day however make it to see Fado here, and have my port.

The place to go and get rapt in the passion of this wonderful, uniquely Portuguese singing. No clinking glassware or chomping diners - just the exquisite skills of the performers and perfect acoustics. Only interruption was the ill-bred woman next to me who filmed the...More

Just an amazing performance, taking full advantage of the wonderful acoustic. The duet literally made the hairs on my neck stand on end.

What a fabulous event, the singer AnaMargarida sang as if it was her one and only performance, giving her all (but the show runs almost every evening). Everyone enjoyed it in a very small intimate setting. The staff was friendly and personable. Highly recommended.

We had never been to see Fado before and were worried that this was going to be a tourist trap rip-off. How wrong we were. The guitarists were amazing and the control the singer has over her voice is outstanding. Neither of us speak Portuguese...More

Fado performances are not that easily found in Porto compared to Lisbon. I stumbled upon this place randomly and loved it - the fado performance was wonderful! The hall was just the right size -not big and not too small, around 30-35 people. They serve...More
