I was recommended Povo by a friend, and I am certainly glad I took his advice, aside from the beautiful Fado music that was played during dinner, the food was fantastic and far exceeded my expectations. The service was nice and friendly and the atmosphere was intimate and lovely. My only complaint was some of the other patrons were talking over the Fado sets, which was outside of the establishment's control. Make sure you book a table with Fado for the best experience.

Absolutely loved our evening at Povo. The food was excellent and the fado singing was incredible. Was one of the best nights we had during our two week vacation in Europe.

The Fado was great--loved the guitarists and singer's rapport and skill. The meal was good, especially the caldo verde. The wait staff were lovely and attentive. I enjoyed my time very much. Other diners were enjoying their dishes too, and my next-door-tsble companions espeically liked the shrimp dish.

Food was OK, I really liked fresh bread and duck legs were 8/10, but a bit disappointed with the Povo cod... Atmosphere and Fado was 1st class though, really recommend it. The service was good as well!

If you want to eat here, you absolutely must make reservations. A local restaurant featuring young fado singers. The singers are contracted for three months, then make a recording. All to encourage the local art and tradition of Fado. Away from tourist traps..genuine and genuinely good. Great food. Great prices. Welcoming service. Will be going back before we leave.

Reservations are highly recommended if you intend to stay for the Fado performance. The restaurant is on the small side so seating is limited. The food was delicious with ample portions. When we attended there were three performers: a female singer with two male guitarists. While we do not understand Portugese the emotion of the songs came through clearly. We had a little difficulty finding the place, but it was well worth the effort.

Very good quality, and low price, for: quejio de azeitao, octopus salad, bacalhau a braz, water, cerveja, two glass of Porto, and also included a Fado show, with a beautiful and value singer, Sofia Ramos, that, with two guitarist, played for us, for about 40 minutes, without surcharges. Recommended!

Hard to write a restaurant review to what is not only a restaurant but also a concert place. The fado was delightful, yet the food was good, with a mix of Portuguese traditional dishes and more modern recipes, such as a chocolate and macha desert! The service was very friendly. Overall, this was a really enjoyable experience for a very reasonable price. To be recommended for any visit to Lisbon!

Simply put--carefully prepared and outstanding small plates . The sardines and codfish salad could not have been better. Our waiters were congenial and concerned enough, but let us enjoy a special treat.

We had a wonderful time at this restaurant on June 28th, combining good food with great music. It was our introduction to Fado, and we loved it.
