  • This is one of (or is) the oldest Fado restaurants in Lisbon. For a small price, you get a multi-course meal and some incredible entertainment. The food was great with some fantastic wine. We were fortunate to have some local friends get the reservation for us, so we were very close to the Fado musicians. We got to chat extensively with our neighbors from Finland and had a wonderful time. I recommend the Fish Stew and the steak. For dessert, share the chocolate mousse and ice cream. To die for.
  • Considering this is a music museum, pretty impressive what they have been able to put together, and well worth it to spend some time with the listening devices as you walk through the place. Great collection of music for sale - check out their website and have a listen on some of their shortlisted suggestions before going. Actually bought a cd (?) but its great!
