We were a large party of 12 but had booked in advance. Unfortunately they struggled to fit us in and it was very cramped. Our orders didn’t arrive together and some of the items were not cooked well. It’s a shame as gas the potential to be good

It was a wonderful experience at your restaurant. The fado was fabulous and very exciting for me to be there. My daughter also enjoyed it as a totally new experience. Your personnel were so nice and pleasant and made it a perfect evening for us on our first visit to Lisbon. We plan to return.

We have been looking for a place to enjoy Fado and Povo did the job perfectly fine.
I would not particularly recommend it for food, as there are better places to go, but in combination with the music we havd a super enjoyable evening, service was awesome and value for money really good.

Restaurant is right on pink street, easy to find. Food was pretty good, although a bit pricey. The Fado performance was excellent- but just know they charge €4pp as an entertainment fee.

Amazing food and Fado music! Warning, be prepared to be silent and listen when performance is in progress. They perform in 10 minute segments with breaks so you can chat in between sets.

There were extra charges that were not shown on the website and we were told we must leave by 10pm. The food was cold and when we sent it back 1 of the 3 dishes was still cold.

The dessert and coffee was great, as was the Fado.

Fado in Povo was wonderful; with wine, prosciutto and cheese, a very beautiful experience of a beautiful Portuguese song.
The only suggestion is a little longer repertoire.
Certainly recommendations!

The food was very good but à little expensive. It is not the true spirit of a portuguese restorante. The soul of fado was not there.

o restaurante é fantástico para descobrir jovens artistas de fado enquanto desfrutam de algumas tapas. Com a família ou amigos é um ótimo momento esperando por você. Só é necessário ter conhecimento dos protocolos do lugar. Por favor, se você não está acostumado com os lugares ou não conhece a atmosfera dos restaurantes de fado: Não faça barulho, não fale, e quando tirar fotos faça isso sem o flash quando os artistas cantam.


O fado é uma música excepcional, mas precisa de intimidade e silêncio para ser sentido da forma mais intensa possível.

Only it is necessary to take knowledge of the protocols of the place. Please, if you are not used to the places or do not know the atmosphere of fado restaurants: Do not make noise, do not talk, and when you take photos do it without the flash when the artists sing.

I went with my partner to see the fado as there were many good comments. We arrived at 8 and were sat down, where we were told about the artist fee of 4 euro each, which we accepted. We were told the show would start at 20.30 but they didn't start until 20.45. Barely 10 minutes later there was a break of 15 minutes. Then 3 songs later and the show was over. The food was nice and authentic but we felt slightly defrauded with the performance. The artists were great but the performance was very short!!

This is a Tapas restaurant. The tomato soup was delicious. My husband and I ordered the cod with potatoes and eggs. The waitress accidentally delivered the wrong dish to us. When we discovered it, she was very sorry and offered to replace them right away. My husband kept the dish and my dish was replaced. Both dishes were very good. The staff was pleasant. There was a charge of 4 Euros a person for Fado. The singer and musicians were wonderful. We were informed that we needed to vacate our seats by 10pm for a second seating. That was fine, as we arrived at 7:30 and had plenty of time to eat.
