My wife and I, and another couple ate here recently. The food and service was excellent. I've been to main land Portugal, ( 3 times) Madeira and San Miguel. The food and service here; is as good as any. We toured Battleship Cove most of the day... then went to TA's for dinner. We spent over two hours eating and... More

I always get a variety of appetizers when I go here. One I HAVE to get every time is the fried calamari, the batter is just right. The sauce they serve with it is amazing, its not too spicy. I have also been here for a work dinner which was downstairs. I was happy there was a bar down there.... More

I have been going to T.A. Restaurant for over 25 years and have never had a bad meal. My favorite meal there is the Filetes Doradas and the Prego no Prato. Both are excellent. Service is always quick and waiters/waitress are always smiling and very attentive.

I ordered a grilled chicken plate with salad and rice. I reported to our waitress that my chicken was overcooked, burnt and dry. Right then she should have taken my plate back to the kitchen and apologize for the restaurant. She offered me many sauces to cover up the chicken. OMG! This is how you lose business. You never know... More

Went with a group of friends to the TA prior to a concert at The Narrows. Born in Fall River I thought my friends would enjoy some real Portuguese food. There are so many great memories of food from that area including Chourico, Portuguese sweet bread and Fall River chow mein! We were very pleased with the food, the service... More

The food was very good at this restaurant and the prices were quite reasonable. However, our visit was marred by a waiter who made us wait forever before clearing our table after our meal was finished and when we mentioned our displeasure he was unapologetic and made the excuse that it was normal for a Portuguese restaurant.
