The menu that is in the fork it is not the same as the one that is in the restaurant. I wanted the setubal friend codfish and was not present, the same for the chocolate cake with green tea ice cream. I didn't like the actual menu of the restaurant. They have to include the plates that they took away. The only positive fact was the fado: amazing.

The fado singer was great and that’s why we came. But the food was disappointing. We had soup, salad, and shrimp. All were bland. Service was fine.

We spent a very good time at this Fado ! The singer was amazing (Sonia Soprano) and the food was excellent ! Really nice. We were looking for a good typical cosy Fado and were not disappointed.

DISAPPOINTING. "Povo" means "people" refering to the Portuguese people. But the food of this restaurant is not copious as the real Portuguese people's food. Moreover, for the concert of Fado, we have to pay 4 euros more per person. So, at the end of the day, it's VERY EXPENSIVE for the offer.
There are other restaurants which offer a tasty portuguese food (with copious portions) and concert of Fado for a correct price (like "Retiro Dos Sentidos" no Bairro Alto).

First of all, the food was pricy but good. Service was one of the worst I ever experienced. "Live Fado from 8:30 - 10:30" is a joke. The fado players played 3 songs, then disappeared for 45min only to return for their next 3 songs and leave again. All this for 4€ extra per person for "live fado". We can't recommend this place.

Friendly and helpful staffs who speaks fluent english, is a great help to foreigners like us who can’t speak their native language. Love the ambience and great place to be introduce the art of Fado to foreigners.

Great fado music by young up-and-comers, great food, too. We had the mussels. Outstanding! Felt like a local scene with fewer tourists. We’d go back!

The food quality is excellent and it’s very special to have the Fado experience during your meal. Very recommended! The service is very nice and prices are reasonable. A very unique place that I would visit every time I visit Lisbon...

This restaurant was a great find. The food was good, not great (for Lisbon), but the intimate setting made up for it. Fado performance was amazing however. Really enjoyed it over all.

We went to Povo in order to listen to some Fado in a a friendly atmosphere (and without fixed menu...).
I liked much the fact that Fado is given in small "bits", 2/3 songs and then a pause for eating or ordering. The food is good and prices are reasonable. Thumbs up!

Staff is welcoming and attentive to a packed house except for one angry kid waiter with tattoos on his arm. He was rude to me while I was waiting to be seated outside (told me to get out of the way because apparently he needed to get some trays behind me, proceeded to be rude to other tables, and when he got to our table rushed us to order and then wouldn't let us order our dinner with an angry flippant "NO" (I guess they don't take orders when Fado is playing) but a simple professional explanation would suffice. Got angry to the point the Manager had to send him
home. If they don't fire this kid, which they should, be prepared to be disrespected for wasting your tatooed kid waiter's time time.

Some tables are much better than others. The 4 of us were stuffed in a corner. They don’t serve in order of service. We were a half hour with nothing on the table. 3 tables seated after us had service. We did have a reservation. The Fado was excellent. Sitting at the bar might be better.

The food in the restaurant is good, just a bit expensive, but good. The fado is really nice. But the really negative point is that we booked before to be sure we would have a table, and yes we got a table but a really bad one and in a corner with no place and where we couldn’t see the fado.

Cosy restaurant with an interesting tapas menu. We visited primarily to listen to some Fado and were not disappointed. Staff were very friendly and accommodating and for quite a tourist attraction the prices were reasonable. Would recommend.

Great place for Fado music. Especially if you don’t want to start late in the evening.
