In 1946, fado singer Lucília do Carmo, mother of renowned fado singer Carlos do Carmo, together with Alfredo de Almeida opened a Fado House, at the time named Adega da Lucília. In 1980, “O Faia” was acquired by António Ramos, who together with his children continued to honor the original concept of O Faia: a family-run fado house.

To this day, the family maintains the daily mission of creating a harmony between the cultural experience of a Fado night and the gastronomic culture. Aromas and flavors that are discovered in a creative and contemporary cuisine without forgetting the tradition of Portuguese cuisine.



Bairro Alto

Bohemian is the most natural of adjectives to describe the Bairro Alto, as the area is famous for the nightlife that animates the steep streets of this Lisbon hill, where every door opens to the outside, a bar, a restaurant or a fado house. But the days in the Bairro Alto are equally full of life with an eclectic and creative offer, side by side with the traditional churches and monuments.
