Delightfully delicious at a steal

I had only been here one other time in my life....many moons ago. I have to say it appeared brighter and bigger than I remembered. Another good sign, it was bubbling with conversation in the middle of the afternoon and so we stayed. The food was very good a little milder than expected but tasty... read more

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

We had a great meal! Recommend their Bacalhau a Lagareiro with Vinho Verde and for dessert a slice of Molotov! This is an authentic portuguese restaurant, and also great service!

I lived in Lisbon for over 8 years, but haven't been back in a couple of decades. While in Boston for a conference, decided to look up a Portuguese restaurant. Chose Casa Portugal and glad I did! In typical Portuguese fashion, started off with soup (chose the Caldo Verde, which was excellent). Colleagues had the Sopa Portuguesa & Canja de... More

Casa Portugal is the best Portuguese restaurant in MA no contest! They prepare their food Portuguese style, no substitution, and they never disappoint! Any codfish dish is good, pork with clams, also the appetizers, soups and deserts. Service is slow sometimes exactly because they take time preparing everything to perfection! I love this place

Had a great meal at Casa Portugal in Cambridge MA. Nice, cozy restaurant serving traditional Portuguese food. This family restaurant has great food at a reasonable price. Recommended the restaurant to a friend of mine. He tried it with his family (a party of ten). They absolutely loved it. It was their first time eating Portuguese food. If you go,... More

This is a family business which has been at the same location for many years, although it has been remodeled. The food is traditional Portuguese: fish, seafood, beef, pork, duck & chicken; there is a vegetarian plate, but the emphasis is carnivorous. There are daily specials, and an extensive list of Portuguese wines. This is one place you will never... More

Been there several times, always warmly welcomed and delighted with special Portuguese seafoods. Owner (or manager, can't remember) particularly helpful one stormy night when non taxicab would come and they actually talked a charming Brazilian family into giving us a ride back to our hotel downtown. Wonderful exerience!
