The Chinese woman who is probably managing the restaurant lied about an artistic partnership between the Maria Jo Jo and the famous Brazilian singer Martinho da Vila. Actually Martinho da Vila made a duo with the Portuguese Fado singer called Kátia Guerreiro. The House wine for twenty euros a bottle was horrible and made me sick the other day. Besides,... More

I have been there twice, and did not have bad experience. At least they allowed us just for drinks and appetizers; without any requirement of main dish. (Although the price for chese and pasteis de bacalhau for 2 people almost equal to a main dish). Note that they charge you with the minimum price of 10 € per person for... More

This place is part of a scam. We got a taxi to go to a highly recommended fado club which we knew was expensive. Our taxi driver told us that he was a fado singer and that he knew a better place which was not a rip off. I stupidly believed him and he took us to this empty restaurant,... More

Justs came back from the birthday voucher dinner i received. The staff seemed upset at our presence, were quite rude towards us but the fado was amazing and it compensated for everything. Ppl here complain on being shushed but one needs to understand that during fadistas performance speaking is a sign of bad manners so before u go please get... More

Extremely overpriced, not restaurant quality food at all. We were lured in by nice atmosphere and fado music, but when the food arrived the experience turned ridiculous. We ordered marinated shrimps 20E per person, and requested rice as a side dish. Half a litre of house white wine was 15E. Shrimps were overcooked and the portions were very small. No... More

My wife and I were looking for a restaurant with a Fado show that started before 11 p.m. (as most shows seem to do. We also wanted an a la carte menu instead of the pricey fixed price planes that routinely charged $ 45 E. Per person. We were relieved to come across the Taverna Del Rey that offered an... More

Do not waste your time with this place. The service is deplorable. The food is muck. The owners have some neck on them. There was 7 of us at a table they asked if we wanted bread which was fine, they also brought some salami on a plate. Which they charged €20 for. They charged €17.50 for a cod fish... More

Our cab driver took us here about 1030pm. We went in and ordered a couple drinks (no food). The inside is small but nicely decorated and clean. We listened to 2 different singers over the course of an hour. The singers (a man and a woman) were very good, as were the 2 guitarists who accompanied them. We paid for... More

Staying in Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria

Neighbourhood Profile
Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria
Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and, of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music. The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755 destroyed most of the city but the contiguous neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of Fado, where you'll discover the best "tascas," eat delicious fresh fish and drink great wines. Discover hidden viewpoints and ancient traces of other civilizational ruins in the heart of the Portuguese capital. These are centuries-old neighborhoods that will welcome you to the very best of old Lisbon culture.
