The best

We dine here every time we go to Newark. Lionel and staff are amazing. The food is perfect and they are great at recommending what is best and what wine to pair with the food.

This place is good sangria is also good. Parking is right across street. The only think I did not like was the seating arrangement it was like cafeteria seating. I hope they Chang it because that is the only downside of this restaurant.

The food here is so delicious. It is a bit on the pricey side but for a dinner for two at $60 it is worth every penny!

The seafood is good to very good with some nice presentations of traditional dishes with the portion sizes you'd expect at a Portuguese (some Brazilian dishes, too) restaurant. Potato Chips are a signature side dish. There are fresh fish and raw bar selections. The average review is because the stuffed scallop special was stuffed with Surimi crab even though it... More

Food was awesome. I had Mariscada. It had Lobster, clams, mussels, shrimp and scallops served in a tasty tomato sauce with a touch of cognac, accompanied by rice. My wife had Paelha à Valenciana, a traditional seafood combination of lobster, clams, mussels, shrimp and scallops with chicken, pork and portuguese sausage yellow rice. My only complaint was the staff. With... More

Great service food is fresh! Portions are large.But being a foodie, the seasoning is fairly bland. Good value. The flavor does not explode in your mouth like French and Italian cuisine If you like straight seafood this is the place.White Sangria is great Overall it's good..not great 3.5 stars

The paella is great and this is pretty authentic from what I have heard. If you are in the Iron Bound section it is absolutely worth a visit. The section is pretty safe overall although I would not venture too far in any one direction off of Ferry Street.

One of the best place to have great dinner, lunch without going broke. Try small cafe on the side were local eat, you will never find a better chicken and it will run you around $30.00 for two with wine and espresso. Can't beat it. ,

In advance of attending a New Years Eve wedding in Park Ridge, NJ, we drove to Seabra's Marisqueria on the night before the wedding with a party of eight (8). We arrived at 6:30 PM and were seated on one of several long tables located in the rear dinning area. After a several minute wait required to review their extensive... More
