I can only say on behave of all that the family and myself the service was very well presented; that it will want you to come back again and not to mention the great dishes they prepare. Atmosphere was tranquil and crisp with great smells of flavored food as we waited patiently. This place is the place to dine and... More

I've never had a problem with the service and to the reviewer from LA who did the owner is always there and is always... More

I ate here on Wednesday, Sept. 17, this one night, on a long business trip to New Jersey. I saw the restaurant was rated number 2 on Trip Advisor for Cateret, NJ and my hotel (Holiday Inn/ Carteret) is right down the street. I was looking forward to eating at this restaurant ...unfortunately the meal and service was REALLY bad.... More

You don't have to go to Newark for great Portuguese food. Fresh fish, octopus and calamari. Large portions at reasonable prices. Attentive service.

I've had the pleasure of dining at Oliveira's on several occasions. Jorge treats me like one of the family. I always feel at home! Can't say what's my favorite but I'd start with the skirt steak. Served on a clay tile, sizzling hot, juices galore, yummy!! Bring on the pitcher of sangria, red or white doesn't matter. Doesn't get any... More
