Great food, excellent service

Ordered food for group of 35 hungry detectives. They can't stop talking about how great the paella and chicken were. The manager who took the order was very helpful and the food was hot and fresh when it was picked up.

Delicious and fresh Portuguese cuisine in Jamaica, Queens, with large portions AND free parking! I first visited this restaurant as part of a Groupon offer and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and also free parking(a scarcity in Queens). The Carne de Porco Alentejano (chunks of pork sauteed with fresh clams, garlic, olive oil, white wine and... More

We were there nov.2015 for dinner with the family and the atmosphere was cosy and romantic. The food is very good and takes about 20 min utes to be served.They specialize in sea food,and you must try the margarita,what a drink. Great place to take your family.

O Lavrador whets one's appetite for a trip to Portugal from the minute you walk through the door. Strains of the haunting fado music immediately put you in a festive mood ready to savor a menu reflective of the food you'd find in the mother country. Well Worth the visit.

I wanted someplace quiet and good food. Saw this place in groupon and took a a chance. It was excellent. We had a great time and a great meal. The service was just as well as the food. Highly recommend this place and they are available for catered events. Add this to my favorite list!

Yesterday was our third visit... the first being in the early 90s when friends invited us, the second this summer when we went with family. Each time the experience was great. Food excellent, staff courteous and helpful. Look forward to our next meal there.

I first went here about 15 years ago.. It was a club luncheon. I have taken my family there many times over the years. My elderly father(85) loved it there. It is quiet, clean not expensive and has great tasting food. What's not to love? I always have something on the seafood menu, every dish is a delight. My son... More
