Last night in Lisbon we decided to visit a live Fedo music... found this restaurant and at about 9.30 we went in. The waiter asked what we wanted and when I answered “a couple of drinks”, he made a face, looked at his watch and...More

The food isn't amazing, but it is easily worth the money. It's standard bar food and beer and some great amateur fado. The only reason why I wouldn't rate the experience 5 stars is that it gets so stuffy in the place due to how...More

Lovely super small place with live fado music and rustic food. It was recommended by Locals as real taste of Lisbon .

Great fado experience, glad we were able to see it during our time in Lisbon. Crowed yet enjoyable. One of the few fado's where you can come and go in 15 - 20 minute intervals and stand at the bar. Talented performers.

This is a difficult review. If you consider this place as a Restaurant, I would give 2 stars (expensive low-quality food). However, if you rate the atmosphere, then it is a five-star place!

We can wait 10 minutes outside to listen to fado standing when the restaurant is full. There is good atmosphere, the restaurant is very tiny.

Tasca do Chico is one of those places that you don’t even want to tell to anyone because you want to have it all to yourself! This is my must visit place every time in Lisbon and one of the best fado places in town....More

We went there for dinner and live fado. The fado was exceptional! Very emotional, atmospheric and felt genuine. 4 different singers where changing throughout the night. Each excellent in its own way! I suppose this is the best true authentic fado experience you can have...More

My tip. Go there early because it's very small and it gets full. When the show is about to start they let some people enter and watch the show (which takes 30 min). then they close the door, shut down the lights and turn on...More
