I am travelling to Lisbon in just one week, and I would appreciate any recommendations on restaurants in Lisbon and where to see real fado in the city. I would really like something local, we are not interested in following the most glamourous venues or anything like that, we like something more authentic, so if any local from Lisbon can advise I would very much thank the tips.
We would really love to taste real portuguese and local food from Lisbon, nothing fancy or popular, just good food.

Thanks if anyone can help!!!!!!

Hi Yolandac8

if you want to eat real Portugues food, you can go to the so-called tasquinhas (sorry Portugues, my skills with this language are going worst and worst :( ). They are really small restaurant, runned by family and you can see them because otuside there is a blackboard with the menu. They are cheap and authentic
have a nice time in Lisbon!
