A Portuguese house, for sure - O Faia

Singing Fado since 1947.
Considered a reference in Lisbon's nightlife, O Faia is a restaurant for Fado lovers and the curious. Fado is indeed sung all over the city, but in the oldest districts, there is an atmosphere that distinguishes it and strikes a chord with those who listen to it. It is through the voice of Fado that we get to know nostalgia and the city, love, and tragedy. It is through the voice of Fado that we get to know Lisbon. 
O Faia is the perfect combination of the cultural experience of a Fado night in Lisbon and typical Portuguese gastronomy. The meal with the show included is 67 euros per person (without drinks).

A classic – O Trevo 

The bifana is the star.
Among the dishes and soups of the day, croquettes, and rissoles, we find O Trevo's bifanas. If you are looking for a quick and cheap Lisbon-flavoured meal, O Trevo is a must. With lots of mustard and piri-piri (the latter only for the bravest), the bifanas from this Lisbon café are a must-try. Take the opportunity to try the delicious caldo verde: a typically Portuguese soup with cabbage and slices of chorizo. 
Did you know that even the late Anthony Bourdain tasted one of these bifanas? No need to say anything else. Try it and tell us what you think.
