The food is always excellent, from appetizers to the main course. Love the fresh and high quality seafood. However the service is not great, the waiters are very moody and sometimes impolite. But I love the food, I definitely recommend this place.

This is an update to a previous review one year ago. Upon revisiting this restaurant, I still feel it is the best of all the Portuguese restaurants in Newark in terms of the food and atmosphere. The front room is bland, but sit in the back for a more charming atmosphere. There is no upscale service in this restaurant. While... More

Newark's Ironbound neighborhood has some great Spanish and Portuguese restaurants, including Forno's, Adega, and others. This one is right up there. Excellent wine list, interesting appetizers, and great seafood and paella.

This is one of my favorite places. The food is always good. They have plenty of variety. My favorite dish is 'Carne de Porco à Alentejana' which is extremely good there not to mention the Paehla.. yum yum.. lets not forget the Sangria. I love the red. The bread there is also top quality. The prices there are also very... More

You have to ask for the stuffed crab, for some reason they are not on the menu. The crabs are flown in from Portugal on Thursdays. There are two kinds, warm oven baked small crabs, which come about 4 to 5 on a plate, or the large stuffed cold crab which is eaten like a spread over bread. Both are... More

I was there this past Sunday and the owner is completely full of himself. He mistreated my guests in front of the entire restaurant, everyone was staring. I had made reservations a few days in advance and once I get there my table is smack right the middle with no room to sit or move.People who did not have a... More

Huge portions and great food. Asked for the Squids and the amount of potatoes was huge! It was also tasty and grilled right to the point.

This Portuguese restaurant is absolutely fabulous! From the sangria to the dessert, the food is so well prepared it makes my mouth water just thinking about it. The first time we dined here was back on Mothers' Day of 2013. Why I didn't review it, I don't know other than I probably just didn't think to. We just went again... More

I've been to Sol Mar many times (also called Vila Nova). So far we have always had a good meal there with good service and very fresh fish. We've never tried the meat dishes. Service is good but the waiter may not always speak such polished English and may not make it clear that the cheese and sausage bread presented... More
