We were there this month and the food was delicious and they served lots of seafood,the paella combination of lots of seafood and rice was very good. They serve lots of Portuguese wine and beer, and the margarita was so good. The service was good and I recommend this place. Since coming back from Portugal I have developed a taste... More

Went on a weekday for lunch. We had attentive service in the empty dining room, which was wonderful. The paella marinhero (sp.) was excellent as was the red snapper filet. We will go back!

O Lavrador is still the best restaurant in the area. A short cab ride from Jamaica Airtran & Long Island Railroad Station. The food is wonderful. This restaurant has the best fried jumbo shrimps in NYC. They made their own potato chips which are served hot and crispy. The staff is great.

We took the AirTran to the Jamaica Platform, paid five buck to exit and an 8 dollar cab ride for lunch on a long layover at JFK. Food is fantastic, full and active bar, and menu has typical Portuguese entrees.

Decided to make the most of a three-hour layover between flights at JFK by visiting this restaurant for a mid-afternoon dinner, about 10 minutes away. The restaurant is immaculately clean; the table and napkin linens spotless and pressed. We enjoyed the Lombo de Vaca (grilled filet mignon), and Chourico Casiero (sausage flambee). Our appetizer, the chourico, was prepared a few... More

We found this place through Groupon and decided to give it a try. As recommended, we made reservations for our Sunday evening dinner, arrived and were seated immediately even though we were a few minutes early. Its decor and atmosphere were charming, and the sangria was delicious. For our appetizer we tried the Camarao Piri-Piri which had a nice spicy... More
