Perfect hostess, great menu with a wide range of interesting flavours, fado music softly in the background, lovely red house wine - all at a very decent price. Speaking English was no problem at all, and help in choosing was provided.

Fangas is easy enough to find - the original, smaller, establishment is located at 45 Rua Fernandes Tomas. It was closed on the day I visited - but there was a large blackboard outside directing you to Fangas Maior, just down the road at 29...More

We loved everything about Fangas. The food was amazing and such uniquely wonderful flavors. The service was first class. The ambience was lovely. They serve only small dishes or 'tapas', so you can mix and match. Everything we had was fabulous. Duck, steak, chestnuts, stuffed...More

Food tasted great and authentic, with an interesting mix of flavours and dishes; although a little pricey in comparison to other places we had been to.
