Never disappointed by the food or the service.

You always feel welcome at Europa. You are greeted with a smile and can be seated near the bar with tvs or in the back for a more intimate experience. The food never disappoints and the service is always spot on. If you are looking for a local Portuguese/Spanish meal you can count on, you have... read more

What a little sleeper. Excellent Portuguese food! The décor is of a local nature, but very clean. Average pricing for their specials are between 18 and 24 dollars. I had the lobster and shrimp pasta in green sauce that was very good...

This was our first time at this restaurant that came recommended by my son. I must say he was spot on about the food. I had the Filet Mignon in Porto sauce and it was excellent. My husband had the Cliean Sea Bass which was also very good. We ordered the Calamari as an appetizer. Although it was tasty, it... More

This place is so convenient for us being 5 minutes away and no need to take the ride to Newark. The wife and I love this place for the... More

We found this place on Restaurant.com and after first visit we got hooked .Food, service, Atmosphere is grate. Wait staff is attentive but not intrusive. Sangria is outstanding. We live in Staten Island and keep coming back every week to dine in this family own and operated restaurant.

We love this restaurant. It has been our neighborhood Portuguese restaurant for many years, so we go there for celebrations as well as ordinary dinners. The owner Paul is friendly and takes a personal interest in each of his customers, especially his regulars. The service is at a very nice pace, and the waiters are attentive. The food is delicious...
