We went there for a Fado performance, for which we paid $25 each extra. They took us into a back room where the odor of the scented candles burning on the tables assaulted us. The food (paella Valenciana, shrimp Europa) was bland, but they brought out Tabasco sauce when I asked for some spice. It seemed the same rice was... More

This was our 3rd visit to Europa, but our first full dining experience at this popular Portuguese establishment. . In the past we were attracted to the unique outdoor cafe setting, it's always jam-packed on summer weekends so we had stopped in for drinks. On this visit I was thrilled to see a Tapas menu since I prefer sampling the... More

We stopped by for happy hour the other day and were duly impressed. The Sangria was delicious and the tapas selection was quite good. We had the mussels and a pork stew selection; both were very tasty. Since the tapas were top quality; I am very sure the main menu will be the same. I am looking forward to that... More

We eat frequently at Europa South. It is one of our favorite places in the area. Service is usually prompt and friendly. The food can be very good. The restaurant can be crowded and a bit tight in the dinning room. My favorites are the Chorizo as a starter and the Scallops Bordalesa as a main. Try the house special... More

Dinner on 8.2.2014. My house specialty of "Shrimp Alfonso XIII" consisted of microwaved mashed potatoes, some variation on a watery marsala sauce, all served on an odd silver fish-shaped plate. Calamari appetizer was rubbery with a sickeningly sweet sauce and thick dark batter. Shrimp appetizer was served in a wooden bowl of oil and burnt garlic. Had this random dude... More

You don't have to go to down neck in Newark for good Portuguese food if you live in Ocean county. This restaurant while not as fancy or authentic as those in Newark certainly fills the bill without the long trip. Foo and service were very good.

Went on a Saturday night and they were packed. Waited a half hour to get our table that was empty for at least 20 minutes. However, once we were seated, the service was friendly and helpful. Among the appetizers, the escargot was the standout. One couple had the Paella Valencia for two with generous portions of seafood and meat with... More

We have patronized this restaurant for 20 years. I like the crab-stuffed lobster , cilantro clams in garlic broth and the beef is aged and excellent . The bar has become popular for 50+ Because it has bands and dancing and generous drinks . A real Portuguese flare. Attend one of their wine tastings - an excellent value. You'll need... More
