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

I brought my 2 family members to enjoy a nice dinner due to a special event. The reviews seemed to describe this establishment as a place to have a great meal so I decided to give a new place we hadn't gone to a try. We waited approximately 25 minutes to order as the place was full and the single... More

I live down the street and have visited the place over the years the food and drinks get more expensive and less tasty. Save your money head over to sutphin blvd and eat at one of the Portuguese restaurants there. This establishment is usually filled with locals who go there to drink and play pool on the crooked table in... More

If you are headed to JFK enroute to Lisbon, Porto and points twixt the two, you might save yourself beaucoup bucks by stopping on 101st Avenue in Jamaica for authentic Portuguese cuisine served in generous quantities to wash down with some sangria while listening to the haunting strains of Fado. A great deal all around.

Excellent food, friendly knowledgeable service. I have been here several times and not once been disappointed. The fish and steaks are cooked to perfection. The sangria and tapas are delicious and at a reasonable price.

Came here with a group of 9 people. They were very accommodating as we originally told them we had 6 people and they were able to add an extra table so that all of us could fit comfortably. There were also a huge party that night that took up half their dining space. Good thing we came earlier because we... More

My husband and I recently spent the night at an airport hotel in JFK. As we arrived early enough in the evening we decided to check trip advisor for nearby restaurants rather than eat in the hotel's cafe. We had a drink at the hotel bar whilst waiting for our cab and when we mentioned where we were going to... More
