Great atmosphere, perfect fado, good food and very nice service. This is not a tourist trap and the prices are reasonably. Especially if you keep in mind that you get a private fado concert. Very nice experience!

This was our second time at povo during our trip. We had a fabulous time. The food was great and the fado was superb. Really fun experience and the kids loved it also. Will return next time in Lisboa.

This was a wonderful wonderful experience and from nowhere, and not understanding the language, I had tears in my eyes from the music. Unlike other reviews of other fado joints, the food was fabulous. just a word to the restaurant to suggest that as the audience are asked be quiet stopping staff talking, and in particular a young waiter singing quietly (but not silently) with the singer behind me , would be better. But this is I am sure the place to be moved by fado.

What a great evening. The fado was excellent as was the ambience. The garlic prawns were cold when they came to the table, however everything else mar up for it. We will definitely go again.

Ambience was good but we found it commercial and very touristic. Food was not very good and disappointing. Fado was pretty short.

For those who want to discover Fado without knowing if you are going to like it or not, Povo is THE place for you!
You will have the chance to listen to excellent modern Fado for about 15 minutes every hour. A perfect combination for staters :)

The food was goid, the fado was magic but the service was inacceptable and under the standard you could expect in a restaurant. The waiteress made us repeat our order several times all this finally to forget 4 of the items we actually ordered, we never got them as she didn’t initually admit the error or offer quickly a solution. For such a nice place, we were very disappointed about the service. Her attitude was not professional, very arrogant, she actually called one of us “Stupid”- this is not a way to treat clients!

Booked at 8pm, in time for the first Fado performance of the night. There were multiple performances spaced out into manageable chunks. Not too strict so you could take photos and eat your meal if you wished during.
Food is large tapas style portions, reasonably priced for size. Drinks good value for money.
Service a little busy-had to ask a couple of times for a replacement drink and 1 thing missed from final food order (was only a side dish so not terrible). But overall a great experience to have!
