    Staff is welcoming and attentive to a packed house except for one angry kid waiter with tattoos on his arm. He was rude to me while I was waiting to be seated outside (told me to get out of the way because apparently he needed to get some trays behind me, proceeded to be rude to other tables, and when he got to our table rushed us to order and then wouldn't let us order our dinner with an angry flippant "NO" (I guess they don't take orders when Fado is playing) but a simple professional explanation would suffice. Got angry to the point the Manager had to send him home. If they don't fire this kid, which they should, be prepared to be disrespected for wasting your tatooed kid waiter's time time.

    Some tables are much better than others. The 4 of us were stuffed in a corner. They don’t serve in order of service. We were a half hour with nothing on the table. 3 tables seated after us had service. We did have a reservation. The Fado was excellent. Sitting at the bar might be better.

    The food in the restaurant is good, just a bit expensive, but good. The fado is really nice. But the really negative point is that we booked before to be sure we would have a table, and yes we got a table but a really bad one and in a corner with no place and where we couldn’t see the fado.

    Great Fado! (Paulo Rocha - amazing!). However, we were very disappointed with the food quality. Sorry to say, I would not return.

    An intimic portoguese experience. Good music, food, wine and atmosphire. Small place with great spirit. A place that you want to find as a tourist.

    Cosy restaurant with an interesting tapas menu. We visited primarily to listen to some Fado and were not disappointed. Staff were very friendly and accommodating and for quite a tourist attraction the prices were reasonable. Would recommend.

    Great place for Fado music. Especially if you don’t want to start late in the evening.

    Nice atmosphere it was disappointing that we waited 35 minutes at our table before someone came to take our order. No one apologized or anything. Waiter took our order, (tapas) but dishes were missing. Ordered a beer and it took 20 minutes before it came. When the bill came I didn’t want to leave cash on the table so I brought it to our waiter and he was at the computer, clearly saw I was there with money didn’t look up did nothing so I just left it and walked away. So disappointing because the atmosphere was nice and the food was good but the service was god awful.

    Servive was slow and the singer in the show that night looked bored during the show, not paying so much attention and efforts to connect with the public.

    Awesome atmosphere and the live Falda was fantastic. It was amazing to experience a tiny bit of Portuguese culture with these excellent artists

    The Gambas and Pica-pao were very tasty, but were better still if not only luke warm. The French fries were cold, hard and dry. The white wine from Alentejo was delicious.

    Very pleasant restaurant. The food is really distinguishing, and tasty. Very nice ambience, we really liked the Fado performers. However, be careful on some of your service employee, not always comprehensive. And please, be very careful on the bill, there was mistakes...

    Loved Povo on the famous pink Street! Small, but perfect in size for the performance, which we loved.

    The frustrating part was the table we were assign to, we barely could see the fado (the main reason we went to Povo). Also we were told that we should leave our table at 22h because they had other reservations which was not exactly a nice welcome.

    The Fado performance was really nice, plus the food is not that expensive, so I think it is worth it overall.
