We were picked up at our hotel at 7:45 p.m., the driver was very friendly, he made us take a long drive by night including crossing the bridges over the Douro, he was waiting for us at the end of the show and we brought back to our hotel. Fixed menu meal including wine rated medium plus, Fado 3 times between dishes rated excellent, 2 guitars and 2 singers who take turns, professionals. Finally a good evening

Everything about this experience was perfect! Our guide was so sweet and thoughtful and the car he picked us up in was lovely. We enjoyed our sparkling wine as he gave us a spectacular sunset tour of the city which ended at the monastery with a panoramic view of the bay and city below. Once at the restaurant the staff was wonderful, attentive, and welcoming. We had never seen a Fado show before but this performance has made us fans of the style even though we don’t speak Portuguese! To top off a perfect evening the driver found out it was my birthday and let the restaurant know discretely so at the end of the evening the musicians and staff all surprised me by singing happy birthday and dedicating one Fado song to me as a present. I really cannot say enough good things about this activity and I highly recommend it.

Great evening.

We've thoroughly enjoyed the whole evening - from the tour round old part of Porto through the Fado show and the delicious dinner. Our guide/driver was great giving us some information about the city and it's monuments during the tour and took us up to the hill with the cathedral where we could admire the view of the city while the sun was setting. We even had a bottle of champagne chilling at the back seat of the car for us! The dinner was really good - the service really nice and friendly and the Fado show was great. The restaurant is tucked away in a side street and the atmosphere there is very intimate which made the whole experience quite unique to us (comparing to most of places in the are buzzing with people). We would thoroughly recommend it to anyone - no matter if it's your first or 10th visit to the beautiful city of Porto.
