This is an outstanding "down neck Newark" restaurant usually filled with locals. That's an excellent recommendation on its' own. If you listen to the chatter, you'd imagine you were dining in any Portugese town. I brought Florida friends here for the first time and they said that's there's nothing to match it at home. We shared appetizers of shrimp in... More

Have been there a few times in the past, but not recently. Each time we were there we were well taken care of by the server and experienced delicious food. Would recommend this place to anyone visiting Newark.

The portions here are so gigantic you're almost certain to leave with a doggy bag. We just returned from two weeks in Portugal and thought we'd re-experience the cuisine for a night. Of all the places in Newark's Ironbound neighborhood, this one seems to be the most popular. I can see why. The food is excellent and the service quiclk,... More

Let me start by saying that service was very very slow. We were seated at 6:45 and did not have our dinner served until 8:00. My husband ordered the whole red snapper which he claimed was delicious and it did look delicious. I made the mistake of ordering the stuffed whole lobster. When order I questioned the waiter several times... More

The restaurant was mostly Portuguese - waitstaff and diners. I am not sure the waitstaff knew what to do with us and all of our questions. They for sure should have told us not to order an entree for everyone in our party. Eat family style and you will be much happier. The octopus and calamari were tender and cooked... More

Extremely rude waiter. I dont know if it was because I was white or a female, but he made me wait a half an hour and only took my order after I asked him if I can order something. I was alone because im traveling for business, he said he thought I was waiting for other guests to join me.... More

All the fresh fish deliveries start on Thursday when the port of newark delivers as an insider tip. From Thursday thru Sunday night you get the freshest fish. Their crab dip is amazing. Get ready to have your taste buds burst. You cannot go wrong with any seafood dish. What this place lacks in decor, it more than makes up... More

The seafood is awesome, they have this hot dish, a seafood combo that serves 4 people. It's AMAZING. Service is great and the desserts are awesome as well. A very nice family style place where you could enjoy your time with friends and family. It also has free parking as well I would say they could improve the ambiance a... More

We walked through a busy bar to the tables in the back. Shrimp with garlic appetizer was wonderful! The rolls were outrageous. Service was good. My husband enjoyed the best whole snapper he ever had! I ordered the grouper but I should have specified "filet" of grouper. I never had a steak cut of grouper before. Each plate had a... More

Visited with a family group of eleven. The menu is a mixture of Portuguese and Spanish meals. Two of us had the grilled octopus which was perfectly cooked, with boiled potatoes and fresh vegetables. It was flavorful and a huge portion. The men had leitão, which was accompanied by round French fries and salad. Again, it was a large portion.... More
