Used to go here 8-9 years ago. Was better then. Several weeks ago a friend and I went here. Food was just ok. Prices very high. waiter was kinda rude and a know it all. Waited a long time for the food to come as well. Maybe he thought we were just tourists and didn't know any better. Well I... More

We recently had dinner at this fabulous restaurant. The atmosphere was perfect! We started with CLAMS PORTUGUESE! Even our daughter that doesn't like clams loved these. For our main courses: Daughter #1 had the Shrimp Alfonso (she loved it) beautiful presentation of potatoes surrounding the shrimp. Daughter #2 had the Crevete Flounder (she loved it too) and the portion was... 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

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 Sangria... 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
