I adore this place. A friend introduced me to it awhile back and it truly is a hidden gem. Exceptional food, great wine, and all at a reasonable price. The smart move is to order a bunch of small plates/tapas and share and share alike. Some faves: chorizos, chicken meatballs, lamb chops, cod croquettes, sautéed potatoes, stuffed peppers, octopus, beet... More

We chose to sit outside as it was loud inside, tried a set of tapas and washed it down with some portuguese wine...loved the stuffed pepper, the meatballs were ok, but did not enjoy the chicken skewers too much... Service was good, the staff helpful and friendly, but did not find the food outstanding...

The food is always great as well as the service. Tuesday nights are half priced wine. Great selection of wines at 50%, can't go wrong with that.

The wine menu, mostly comprised of Portuguese and Spanish wines was broad in both varieties and price points and our waiter made an excellent suggestion for us. The tapas as well as the main courses were all delicious -... More

Mampou is a real gem in the midst of Newark. I particularly liked the patio in the back enjoying the lovely weather and having a delicious meal. My salad was unusual in that it was a combination of green asparagus, water melon, and tomatoes with a delicious balsamic dressing. I chose this salad because I haven't had one like this... More
