Very please with the service, and the quality of the food. Large portions, friendly service, have been several times. The only time that the food did not come out promptly was because the place was totally packed. Obviously if you are doing this much business, you must be doing something right.

We have been to several Portuguese restaurants, and I must say that the food at Barcellos is delicious. The lamb chops with asparagus and shrimp were cooked to perfection in a garlic and parsley sauce, the scallops in Mozambique sauce were wonderful, and the flan was as good or better than the many flans I have eaten all over Europe,...

Barcellos was and soon we were only one of three tables occupied on that Saturday night. It had been a while since we had been there... More

Even though there are close to 70 Portuguese restaurants in the nearby city of Fall River, Barcellos remains at the top of my list. I am portuguese, and like all others no one beats vavos (grandmas) cooking. BUT Barcellos comes so close! The food is excellent, I always choose something different because it's all so good. The baked stuffed scrod... More

Barcellos Family Restaurant isn't that impressive from the outside...and the decor isn't that great inside either. Except for a few touches...a fireplace, some interesting Portuguese ceramics, the interior walls are barren and the place has the feel of a church basement. They make up for it where it counts! The Portuguese food is excellent, well presented and the chef is... More
