    This is a great place to have a pleasant meal and listen to Fado at the same time. The atmosphere is very authentic and the music of excellent quality. The food was very good too. Catering for vegetarians ok. One French speaking waiter was very friendly indeed. Another one who spoke no French was much less delicate. The price isn’t so high if you take the music into account.

    The place was quite empty when we went so it felt a bit empty throughout the evening. However, the food was good - even if a bit pricy. The singing was good but there could have been a bit more engagement from the singers.

    Wine food service environment are all good. Fado inside the Box is an excellent way to enjoy Fado. It actually lasts for an hour with joyful interaction between performers and audience.

    This little restaurant is located in the centre of Lisbon and we made a reservation for the Fado performance. We really enjoyed the Fado performance overall, the songs are meant to be emotional and melancholic. The reservation comes with a glass of wine and some cheese and cold cuts to accompany. Really enjoyed the performance. Mind you that our reservation is pre-dinner, so we did not manage to sample the food.

    From the moment we were met at the reception, to the amazing server to the actual performance we felt like we were home and welcomed into someone's house. What a wonderful performance. Have already booked again for a few days from now. Perfect time. Thank you

    Adela Machado was a spectacular treat. Superb service in a welcoming environment and great food and wine.. and then there’s the Fado music. We had 3 extraordinary guitarists and 3 different and each wonderful singers. 3 sets of great music for almost no additional cost. We will be back and would highly recommend.

    Went to "Fado in the box" and had a great time. The setting is intimate and the service was great. The musicians/singers do a really great job of both entertaining you and getting you involved (without being forceful).

    We absolutely loved our evening because we wanted just a taste of fado and a little snack. Your offering was just right for us. The service, food, wine, and music were delightful.

    I had the best time ever tonight. The setting was intimate and the performers were incredible professionals that exuded talent. This was our first experience with Fado and they have set the bar high! The matre'd and staff were friendly, welcoming us with an appreciation befitting old friends, not mere patrons. We will be back!!

    The owner/maitre d' was abrupt and officious and PUSHY. The tables were set with a single pale, dry roll and a 3-part dish with 4 thin, small slices of proscuitto, olives and 6-7 narrow cheese slices. We were there for the 5 p.m. Fado show. The show was OK but the male singer was wearing such heavy perfume we could smell him from our table. The second the show ended the waiter was at the table collecting our money. The whole experience felt like a factory: get them in and get them out. Would not recommend.

    Wonderful hourlong show, great performers. Great value //' nice tapas dish of ham, cheese, bread and olives plus large glass of wine plus show for 17 Euros. No long waits between short sets, no mandatory expensive dinner. Just an hour of music and snacks. Very pleasant venue. Highly recommended.

    Excellent location, warm welcome, we were up to a great evening. Unfortunately two out of three main courses were very disappointing and my wife and daughter didn’t enjoy their meal. We told the owner who was embarrassed and took action: we were offered dessert and port. Still we didn’t feel like staying for the whole fado performance.

    We had an absolutely wonderful time! Our first Fado experience and would do it again. Even got to meet the singers as they were leaving while we were taking pictures outside and shared our appreciation of their talents! Thanks so much for a great time.
