Really good Portuguese Cuisine

I have been coming here for only a few years, but my parents and friends of theirs have been going there for at least a couple decades. They offer a variety of Portuguese dinners and all of them are always very good. Usually when I visit my mother and go here for dinner and we split a carafe of... read more

Loved ever bit of them defiantly worth the $75.... I would be very disappointed if they were anything less obviously! I shared them with my dad... More

You would never know this great restaurant exists in this tiny town. Excellent service, food delicious. We had stuff mushrooms and a cold seafood salad for appetizers. Nice portions enough to share with two or three people. Two of us had paella and really should have shared one. Portions are more than ample. You also really need to try the... More

Four of us went on a summer night --very late--service was pleasant and fast, we shared sangria, bread and then four entrees and everyone was very pleased. I thought my meal of rice and seafood was excellent--and a side dish of spinach. Terrific! Very pleased. I think they should serve side dishes or vegies as part of an entree rather... More

Good place to eat. Would visit again, and very popular. Free Parking is somewhat hard to find in this popular area.

Wife, ten son and I went there for lunch on a rainy Thursday. We all ordered pork dishes, and all we're great. Wife had pork and clams, son had pork chops and I had picadinho with chorizo and shrimp. Food was fresh, tasty nicely prepared and served. Portions are a little large and service was good, not great, but they... More

Stopped in on Memorial day for the first time in a very long time. We sat at the bar. Absolutely love the new open air feel of the bar, very European. The bartender was very sweet and made great drinks but was slightly weeded and could have used a hand from some of the other staff hanging around. Tried several... More
