I have been to this restaurant on numerous occasions, and never had a bad meal. The food is high quality, cooked to order and always piping hot. Their menu is pretty extensive. Their cubed pork with potatoes is to die for along with their Paela. I have been going here for years, and they never increase their prices. When you... More

Love this place!!! It's a small, family owned Portuguese restaurant. Their portions are huge, everything is cooked to order and delicious! The garlic shrimp appetizer is absolutely scrumptious and the pork cubes w/potatoes and clams is a must! Prices are VERY reasonable for the amount of food you and service is great. House wine is $8 for half a liter... More

This has to be one of the best restaurants in Cambridge. Service is excellent, food is very tasty, and you really can't best the prices!! Get there early, it fills up and then gets quite loud. Get a window table reserved if you can.

This was our first encounter with this restaurant. We ordered takeout on a Sunday afternoon. We were told that our food would be ready in 20 minutes. After arriving, we were forced wait 30 minutes. Our expectation that the food would be worth the wait brought us our second disappointment. The dishes were average and the prices a bit high... More

Went here with daughter and almost son in law. Terrific seafood, great Portuguese fries (don't call them French fries,please) and interesting desserts. Our waiter had a grumpy demeanor which belied a dry sense of humor and a helpful attitude after he let you puzzle a bit about what a "Mollotov" might be. We would happily return and try everything on... More

We were buying wine at The Wine and Cheese Cask and they suggested Casa Portugal for lunch. The page of lunch specials is quite interesting and inexpensive. I had a bowl of spaghetti topped with clams, shrimp, and a bit of fish. Martha had an octopus plate that was large enough to become a lunch on a later date. The... More

Very authentic. You could very easily imagine that you were sitting in a small café/restaurant in Lisboa or in a small town in the Algarve. Great wine selection if you truly appreciate Portuguese wines. The service was good and the food excellent.

This restaurant has excellent food and a long reputation for class. That is why i was so disappointed in the service i received at lunch. I ordered a portugeese soup and the special tuna steak along with a ginger ale. The food was very good and was enjoying the meal when the waitress asked if i needed another ginger ale.... More

Highly recommend trying this place out. It tends to be pretty empty when I've been and I don't know why. The food is absolutely unbelievable and so inexpensive!
