Timpanas Fado restaurant, Lisbon

Timpanas – Fado & Food Group
History
It was the year 1961 when a carpentry shop was transformed into a Fado house.

This circumstance, to celebrate the anniversary of Mercês da Cunha Rego, a fadista who achieved success with one of the classic themes most appreciated at the time, “Cavalo Russo”, by Paulo Vilar and Frederico Valério, determined the opening of this new fado house in Lisbon.

The name Timpanas had a direct inspiration in Leitão de Barros’ phonofilm, in which the actor Silvestre Alegrim interprets a boy, “King of the Traquitanas”, who, whistling, with a revolutionary hat to the patuleia and pilecas attached to the tipoia.

The most revered themes in Fado are Love and Saudade, in which the same theme is multiplied by different versions based on the same melodic and / or lyrics, stylized according to the interpreter.

The Fado, especially the most vernacular fado, came mainly from the districts of Lisbon. Influenced by reminiscences of singers in bailaricos, pilgrimages, retreats, taverns and conviviality among residents, the players and singers were investigating the differentiating and entrenched features of fado, which mirror the experiences of each neighborhood.

Traditionally, fadistas wear black robes, but also showy colors and sequins, the shawls that emphasize the drama of interpretation, the lavish fact, the poses posed and the gestures small but expressive.

In the first phase of Timpanas’s existence, in the light of the olive-oil lamps, respectfully, besides the Duarte Family, the generations of Handymen, with Ti Alfredo to the head, other notable voices and guitarists were heard: D. Maria Teresa de Noronha, accompanied by Dr. Menano, Francisco Maia Stoffel, Teresa Tarouca, Maria do Rosário Bettencourt, Mariana Silva, Júlio Proença, José Pracana and João Ferreira Rosa, among others,

The Timpanas is part of one of the most charismatic districts, where the greatest number of spaces where fado was sung was recorded, thanks to the profusion of people that made it expand from the end of the 19th century and at the dawn of the 20th century, above all linked to fishing and factory activities.

At Timpanas the tradition is carried on accompanied by food and drink it makes for a typical Lisbon experience. The price for the performances are integrated in the meal prices, as it is in most fado houses in Lisbon.
For group menu’s and possibilities, please call us or use the following form. menu prices including fado, dance and drinks start at 40 Euro per person.

And all the sounds bleed into one.

He has grown wings and is making his dream come true.

Restaurant Sete Saias, Nazare

[tab name=”Information”]
Nazare is an old fishing village on the west coast of Central Portugal. It’s a village which has grown into a small town but it has always kept it’s village traditions, very proudly, up to this day.
The town has gained international fame thanks to it’s high surfing waves which on a Northern beach above Nazare, “Praia do Norde” reached the highest waves ever surfed and created a new world record held by Hawaiian surfer Garrett McNamara in 2014.

Nazare is a surfers paradise but it’s also a very nice place for a family beach holiday on the beaches south of the “praia do Norde”.

One of the first really good restaurants we found in Nazare has the name of a tradition that exists only in Nazare and it is the tradition of the “Sete Saias” which means seven petticoats. The traditional woman in Nazare still wear these and you’ll meet them everywhere selling traditional beans called Tremoco or in winter castanje, eating with each other at traditional restaurants or walking together on the streets. Others own restaurants or have apartments for rent.
These where the woman who stayed behind when the husband went fishing, they made a life on the land until their husbands returned, if they returned.
They wore seven petticoats which translates to “Sete saias” because winters in Nazare can be cold and it’s a tradition that has made Nazare very famous.

The restaurant pays homage to it’s name and this still existing tradition as the owner wears the petticoats with an unquestioned and proud prevelance.

The restaurant serves fresh fish straight from the sea as well as many well known Portuguese meat dishes. It’s not a coastline restaurant with a view of the beach but for the locals it’s the place to eat when you want something special and don’t care to much about the view. The food is excellent as is the menu. The restaurant is very nicely decorated, staff is great and ambience authentic. Place to visit and an authentic local, place to eat!
