Saturday nite, 4 couples. We wanted authentic Portuguese, and this place was recommended. Apps (calamari and chourice) was excellent and reasonable in cost. Main courses looked tremendous, I had the octopus, wife had the Portuguese Steak, both outstanding. Right parking, but all else spot on.

The restaurant was nicely decorated for the holiday. We had reservations for 6 PM and were promptly seated. The individual gasses of wine were reasonably priced at $4.95. We chose the Pino Grigio which was just fine. In addition to the regular menu, Terra Nostra offered a buffet for this evening, which was very reasonably priced at $13.95. Three of... More

Went there for dinner. My food was cold. The owner should come to the tables and greet guests and get to know his customers. The dessert was not fresh when I took a bite out of it you could tell it was old and hard it was the cheesecake. Will not be returning.

As always I enjoy the food here; everything from the steak and rice to Clams Casino!!! All the while the service is something to be improved upon! Pretty much a hit or miss on that; sometimes it's great other times not so much! But; I always return...the food is just that good!! Especially the $5 Steak sandwich and fries combo;... More

as the title states... hot and cold. waaaay too much salt and grease, and the flavors are not worth the damage you do to your body or wallet. Items are definitely overpriced. Fun place to go if you're not eating. I have had many disappointing dishes here. If you are going to eat here, don't get the entrees over fries... More

I really weanted to try the Portuguese since it has such a strong tradition in Fall River. Our hostess at the Lizzie Borden pointed us here and she did right by us. The food was excellent, the sangria even better. Very attentive service.
