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

We had reservations for 630, party of 12. We arrived a little early was seated right away. Wait staff was polite and helpful. Appetizers were good, we had garlic shrimp,chourico and lobster bisque. My husband got the surf and turf. He's steak was cooked just liked he wanted but the lobster tail was a little overcooked and rubbery. I got... 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

Nothing better than a meal at Europa! Love the service and quality if food. Always a great night. And if you're in the mood for light fare, sit in the lounge, order Tappas and The BEST Sangria and just relax. We watched the Rangers play off game on one side and danced on the other.

Tried here tonight after a co- workers recommendation. When I first walked in I was a bit taken back as the decor was dated but in good shape and very clean. The dining room was split into 2 sections and was comfortable. The sangria was OK and probably premixed. However, they were extremely cheap in the fruit portion, we only... More

The food here is really something special. We ate in the lounge area, shared a few Toppas and a pitcher of Sangria. There was music entertainment and the Ranger game was playing. We couldn't have found a more perfect spot for us!

Restaurant has bar in front and more formal dining in rear. Serves tapas and typical Portuguese entrees. Gazpacho ordinary, but other selections quite good. Paella particularly good and a large portion. Atmosphere OK and very good soundtrack of Fados. Typical and tasty deserts. The service was particularly friendly. The prices won't break the bank and were very fair considering the... More

The food is pretty authentic so get ready for a robust meal bursting with hearty flavorful meats, seafood, olive oil, garlic, and spices. Not light dining so expect to feel full when you leave. The atmosphere also has an authentic old world feel and is usually fairly quiet except for weekends in the summer. The live music is usually not... More
