Excellent Portugese restaurant

We ate here with friends one evening. It seems like a locals place where the bar tender knows everyone. Great food at a reasonable price. I would definitely go back again when in the area.

Cozy and very warm Portugese place, delicious food. I had a roasted octopus with roasted potatoes and rice, it was superb. They have a lot of other great things on the menu and a few specials on the wall.

This was some of the best food I have had. We had calamari, steak and flan. I could have bottled up the sauce on the steak and eaten it every day! The server was very frienly and helpful. If you are ever near Fall River, try it out!

Fall River has a large Portuguese population and a number of Portuguese restaurants. T. A. came highly recommended and with good reason. I started with the kale soup, which was delicious--and I don't even like kale. For a main dish, I had Bacalhau a Casa, a very tasty peasant dish consisting of shredded cod, potatoes, red peppers, onions, and other... More

Have been patronizing this restaurant for years. Excellent Portuguese food -particularly enjoy their calamari, shrimp St Michael and seafood sizzler. Service is always consistent. Whenever we and friends feel like going out but can't decide where we want to eat this is our fall back because we always have a good meal at an affordable price. Ask for Manny or... More

The service was the only thing average about this restaurant. After a recent storm, I was very excited about dining in this traditional portuguese restaurant. No little necks provided me an opportunity to sample some of the best fish dish. The fish was fabulous with a very inviting presentation. Traditional portuguese fare at a reasonable price that was very tasty.... More

If you haven't visited the Azorean islands, don't fret, for all you have to do is visit this eatery. The coffee specialties, desserts, and main entrees are just like they are on that jewel of an island. The owner Kevin is always there to make sure you have the perfect experience. Whether it's going to be a romantic evening, or... More
