Impressive food for the locale...

Squeezed onto a small side street, you wouldn't expect much from the restaurant. However, the food and sangria were great, service was good and the outdoor dining area was enjoyable on a late summer evening.

I have been going to solar do Minho for 9 years and never had a problem. This time around was a HUGE HUGE HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT! There are three sections to solar's dining area. A main dining area, which is always a delight with great servers and service and you can see where they roast the meats for their rodizio A... More

Came here for New Year's eve and expected chaos. But, they sat us within 10 minutes and altho the restaurant was completely full, the staff was attentive, efficient and made sure we were happy with everything, throughout the entire meal. The rodizio was $32.99, and meats were all delicious, tho the sausage was a bit salty. Rodizio also included varieties... More

I love this little place. On a weird little side street and attached to a private house, it has two lively bars and three separate and atmospheric dining areas. In the good weather they also have a tent set up outdoors. The rodizio is terriic and I am someone who hardly ever eats meat - but I eat it and... More

best sangria in NJ . Food is excellent. Service is a hit or miss. you will either have an excellent server that completely tends to your needs or a server that is rude and inattentive. But if you have patience, the food and sangria are well worth it!

Consistently great quality food. Better than most restaurants in the Iron Bound section of Newark. Very friendly staff and valet parking.

The food is very good, we have been here many times on Business lunches, and also with friends and family and everybody likes it. Sangria is great, service is very good, except for the hostess they have over the weekend, she is very rude and not friendly at all. We will keep going back

The ambiance is wonderful. The steak on a tile is superb. But, all in all, the staff is not friendly. And the pitcher of Sangria, although a perfect combo with the dinner, was pricey.
