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

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!

We had a reservation at 8:30 PM, 01/17/15 (Saturday), a party of six. Waitress barely acknowledge our presence, when we respectfully asked for a table, she told us to wait in the street. Well, it was 17 degrees F. We asked to wait at the bar and she just shrugged. Many people were sitting, they had already finished, plates have... More

I have been there with some friend. The place has been suggested by some colleague. The quality of the food and of the wine is very nice, the price is not cheap, but it is fair if compared with the food quality. Also the waiters are very kind. The restaurant is not very big, so i would suggest to book... More

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
