Suganda M's recent review is accurate albeit the Rating is a tad harsh. Chico's is about the Fado first, and then the food. It is the culture, the atmosphere and the emotion, and then the service and drinks. If you keep this in mind you...More

Fado in this place must be really beautiful for people to bear it. Its very cramped, workers are arrogant or are just plain unhappy - couldn't figure. We came 10 minutes earlier than our booking, they won't even accomodate us for drinks. So came back...More

First off you must make a reservation to see the Fado. Second eat before you go; the food is more like tapas and not that great. This place is for the drinks and the Fado. They have a great lineup of amazing Fado that will...More

No, good luck finding a way to make a reservation. My advice would be to call or stop in on one night to make it for another night.
