The Sabor a Fado Restaurante is located among the line-up restaurants in the 'Old Town' area in Funchal. The Sabor a Fado is a highly recommended restaurant for those looking for food accompanied by a Portuguese Fado experience. A family-run restaurant which is small in size meaning tables may need to be shared. Atmosphere is very warm and cosy with the dining room perfectly designed to create the ideal mood for a true taste of Fado as the restaurant's name states. Service is friendly with all staff taking turns in singing a Fado song whilst serving meals. Menu and foods are simple with typical homemade Madeiran dishes and desserts on offer at moderate prices for this area. A charismatic and extremely lively locale to eat in.

Brilliant night out - obrigado/a
By Brian Robertson ( and Frankie) on 2015-03-07
About a year ago I almost died following a fire at work. Fortunately I didn't. Tonight was such an exceptional night. The food was absolutely brilliant and the entertainment was spectacular. I don't speak Portuguese but that didn't matter. We felt every sensation coming through our bodies. Everyone in the restaurant took part in providing what can only be described as "something quite fantastic". We sat beside a group of Germans and really enjoyed their company - slainthe Werner! A brilliant night - one which makes me glad I survived. And people are complaining about the broccoli! - Get a life! B/R/L
A great fado experience

We visited on August 1th 2014 Sabor a Fado. It was a great experience. The 5 members of the family who were singing fado all had a very good and intense performance, the guitar players were also inspiring. In the small and friendly restaurant we had the best evening in our 14 days visit of Madeira.

Ótimo espaço para quem aprecia um bom momento de fado. Ontem foi pela primeira vez ao Sabor a Fado, adorei o ambiente, com pessoas simples e simpáticas. Recomendo a lá irem .Grandes vozes,sim senhor.....!A fazer-me lembrar Lisboa, Bairro Alto. Bem hajam

Ruoka maukasta ja kohtuu hintaista. Palvelu tehokasta, sydämellistä ja ensiluokkaista. Ilmapiiri kotoisa ja lämminhenkinen. Kaiken kruunaa henkilökunnan esittämä Fado-musiikki.
Très décevant / very desapointing
By Isabelle Millies on 2017-08-16
Quelques chansons de Fado plus ou moins bien chantées selon la chanteuse (ici toute la famille chante, cuisine et assure le service en même temps), un repas sans intérêt, voire gras et dégoulinant d'huile (calamars), un très mauvais Madère, pour un prix exorbitant (3 fois le prix d'un restaurant de qualité du même quartier, certes sans fado...). Nous le déconseillons.
