Great Portuguese food

The ambient is outdated and simple but the food is fantastic! Service is good but chose a day that is not so full because it is quite slow. They do not have a large area and not a lot of tables but it is charming and family friendly. Try Cod fish Dishes! Just perfect!

We were walking in Boston and surprisingly seen the restaurant!! Went in for a Portuguese beer Sagres and couldn't resist to have Ameijoas and Camaroes ao Alho! Definitely great food for a ridiculous low price!! As a Portuguese I highly recommend it!!

Great Portuguese restaurant. I had the Amêijoas Bolhão Pato and the Octopus. Both were very good. Especially the Octopus is very difficult to get it is so good.

Last day of our stay in Cambridge we went to Casa Portugal. As it was later in the evening, it wasn't full and we got a nice table by the window. Service was prompt and the food was good. Dessert list was nice too and I had to get a pasteis de nata. It tasted just like in my memories... More

Came to this place looking for something different, away from typical bar food. The service was great and the food was simply amazing. We had the octopus and the Valencia rice. Everything was perfectly cooked and delicious. Strongly recommend!

Great Portuguese restaurant on Cambridge St in Cambridge(close to Prospect), I had the little necks to start and then the Bacalhau recommended by the waitress, a nice port with the little creme brulee like minitarts, nice service and ambiance

They made it very clear to us they couldn't be bothered. When we tried to get someone's attention we were ignored and in fact avoided. We waited and waited and waited. When we approached the staff we were yelled at. Don't go here. They didn't honor our reservation or talk to us except to bark orders to wait. They don't... More
