    We pre-booked through fork and arrived on time to be given the best table in the house. Service and food fabulous. Fado singers amazing. Wonderful atmosphere and we had a great experience.

    I haven't heard fado live before, but the sound of the guitars and the authentic passion of singers are absolutely thrilling. Food and wine are high quality too. A night at cafe luso is an axperience to live.

    Its an unusual experience. In between 20 minute bursts of Fado singing (literally yards from our table) the waiters fly around serving in the gaps - its an impressive spectacle watching them do it! Its the kind of thing that you are glad you did, but you would have to be a big Fado fan to go again.

    Thank you to the staff for dealing with our challenging dietary requirements with a smile. Great experience with amazing talent. We were lucky enough to go on a not so busy night but I can see how groups may impact your experience here. All in all, super traditional, good service and tasty food.

    Great hospitality. Got great wine recommendations from the waiter. The fado was awesome! The food was super tasty. A very interesting dessert which I can only describe as lemon cheesecake granita and chorizo flavoured dulce de leche creme caramel totally blew my mind.

    The food was absolutely worse than CATASTROPHIC, horrible wines, and. terrible atmosphere. It was certainly not worth the price we paid for it. We were completely disappointed.

    We had for the first time the experience of Fado music. Excellent combination at the Cafe Luso between a great dinner and a fantastic performance. The restaurant got packed verry soon after the opening time and food start coming. Probably being so busy we got delayed our main course for more than expected but in the end all went well and we shall go again for sure if opprtunity arises

    Delicious, amazing, but expensive food. Fado was incredible. Service was slow however. Had to get up at asking multiple waiters for the bill and stand by the exit in order to finally pay.

    Incredible service - so classy. Very special Fado experience and without feeling touristy. Two suggestions - you might inform guests not to use flash on camera and video on tripods as it’s very distracting and disrespectful to artists as well. And, you might offer at least one vegan option on menu. Not vegetarian but totally plant-based. Love Cafe Luso.

    Great atmosphere, very nice staff and impressive Fado! Not only foreign tourists but a lot of Portogeze too. No regrets at all going there and very recommended!

    I just feel that its overpriced. The Food and service are. Very good. But i feel that the prices are just too high. The Price should at least include the drinks

    What an extraordinary evening! Having read all reviews, we decided to walk past one evening and decide whether this was going to be our fado destination. Pedro was at the door and answered all of our questions patiently and with the most courteous smile, just the right balance of friendliness and efficiency. He even invited us for a quick glimpse of the fado recital of that evening. We returned next evening and had the best experience ever, with a beautiful show animated by Elsa Laboreiro, best table service and of course Pedro at hand, who made sure our evening would be unforgettable. From our heart to yours, thank you for this beautiful experience!
