Excellent Fado, what a wonderful experience in a more genuine Fado club than some others. New Fado resident (1st night) was excellent.

We had a great experience at Povo. The food was delicious. Hands down, I can honestly recommend the clams in beans stew. The staff and overall mood were quite pleasant, and the fado performers for the night were just lovely.

Great music with fado trio. Friendly frantic service, but all done right. This isn’t fine dining, but the food and entertainment were excellent.

The food and service were very good! It’s sad that we had to pay for music/artists while we didn’t ask that on our online reservation. Nice music but it would be better when we are allowed to eat while they sing/play music. Our meal got cold...

Food was decent and good quality for the money. 4 euro cover for terrific Fado was totally worth it. Glad we chose Povo for our Fado experience in Lisboa.

Nice food, the Fado performance was good too but we were seating just in front of the singer so it was a bit odd.

My friend and I had an amazing time at Povo. Food was really good, the staff was very nice and smily, the fado session very special and unique. We’ll definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Lisboa!

I'm very happy to have seen a fado performance at Povo. The food was good and the service was very good, but the performance was excellent. If you're going to see fado in Lisbon, it's worth coming here for an authentic experience instead of being taken in by a gimmick somewhere else. Highly recommended!

The food was fine and the fadó singing was nice but the service was really terrible. The staff seemed to be totally disorganised and there was tension between them. The server looking after us was very rude, She mixed up our orders and rolled her eyes when we told her that we did not order the dishes she served us.

It was quite expensive seeing as the food was so-so. Overall the terrible service left a bad taste in our mouths and we would not recommend it to anyone.

We had a wonderful evening at Povo – fabulous food, beautiful fado music and altogether a great atmosphere! The fado is performed in four short sets with breaks in between over the course of two hours, and there is no service while the music is being played – but it’s worth it as it doesn’t disturb the music! Otherwise the service is extremely friendly and efficient. Make sure not to talk during the music or you will get hushed! Food was spectacular – our highlights include the pork cheeks in red wine and the swordfish in lemon sauce. If you’re looking to dine and enjoy fado simultaneously, you’d struggle to find anywhere better than this! Make sure to book in advance as this is clearly a very popular spot.
