The owners and staff of Povo clearly care a lot about their restaurant. Wonderful ambience, outstanding service, tasty and diverse menu, and beautiful fado that starts and ends early enough to go listen to more fado! Remember: silêncio durante o fado!

Bohemian restaurant​ with variety of dishes. Traditional and creative portuguese cooking and tasty desserts.
We also enjoyed with reading of Portuguese Poetry by stunning artists of Lisbon.

We really enjoyed the Fado. The food was also lovely but the service was slow. We'd still recommend it as a Fado experience to friends who visit Lisbon. I really enjoyed the octopus salad, pig cheeks and fresh bread!

Une belle découverte avec de très bons plats et du bon vin. Le spectacle Fado est aussi très bien. Dommage toutefois que dès notre entrée, on nous parle anglais alors que nous sommes au Portugal !!

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.
