In early 19th-century in Lisbon, fado was on the fringe. Singers were sailors, bohemians and prostitutes. They performed in taverns, alleys and brothels, telling stories of love and loss in the neighborhood: who stabbed whom, who went to bed with whom. The fado scene has long been scrubbed of rough types and rough places. However, there’s authenticity to be found if you go where the locals go out these days. And this experience is all about it: about giving you a true Fado experience in a wonderful place, around a good diner. Get ready to experience a wonderful show, an amazing way of communicating; of living together with local, just like in the old days.

The beauty of Fado

I had forgotten what sweet sorrow it is to listen to good fado. And then I retuned to Mesa de Frades. The place had been renovated, it is much smarter and the setting does contribute to the quality of the fine performances we witnessed. We were there after dinner, so we did not eat ordering only wine, and the staff were lovely!

Culture in all corners

This old chapell is turned into a fantastic fado restaurant. Dining starts late in Lisbon. The entertainment much later. Great food selection witn a lot of small dishes. Simple wine selection, but all tasty and including. The fado entertainment is great. We spoted some of the greatest musicians within the fado world at Mesa de Frades. A great night.
