Always an enjoyable visit. Portuguese style food is tasty, portions good, variety and especially the "Specials" are consistently good.

Wonderful food, a great introduction to the unique tastes of Portuguese food. Very attentive waitstaff and a friendly owner made us feel right at home and helped us choose new dishes, which for us were a tasty adventure. My wife's flaked cod casserole was delicious and my steak on a sword (the biggest skewer I have ever seen) that hung... More

I went to Inner Bay with a large group. Everyone was very happy with their meals. I had Shrimp Mozambique. The shrimp was served in a bowl nestled on my plate. They were plentiful, tender, and very tasty in a traditional lightly spicy red sauce. The shrimp were accompanied by both rice and fried potatoes which is typical of Portuguese... More

On a recent visit to New Bedford, my B&B host recommended I dine here for the Portuguese flavor. Situated since 1995 in an old brick coffee syrup factory, I entered and was seated. My server, Cathy, told me the specials - there were more specials than entrees on the menu - and most were a "fresh catch." I selected grilled... More

This is a family run restaurant. The decor is warm an cozy. The seafood is always fresh. The portions are always huge. All meals come with either soup or salad and a basket of portugese rolls. The waitresses are friendly and knowledgable. They have a great wine selection. The prices are reasonable and most people bring home doggie bags. They... More

We had been to this restaurant before and decided that it was time to return. The small brick building was busy. Upstairs there was a private party going on and downstairs the bar and dining areas were filled with customers. We waited about 10 minutes for a table and once we were seated a friendly waitress greeted us. The food... More

Cute, small place in the south end of New Bedford. The food was good and the price wasn't bad at all. I got the bacalhau "silmo" which was cod with some peppers onions and potatoes and some yummy Portuguese seasoning. My gf got the shrimp mozambique and said it was good as well. Only complaint is that after we were... More

I had eaten here before and had planned to do so again. I also had a gift certificate, so it was a no-brainer. The atmosphere is great, and the service is friendly and professional. The food is outstanding and cooked to old world recipes. I will definitely stop in again. Two rabbit ears up!! (\ (\ ( -.-) o_(")(")

We went on a whim, Siri's recommendations for Portuguese restaurant in the area. I chose this place and we were not disappointed. Very nice atmosphere, service is exceptional, and the food was good. Malbec was awesome! Will be back.
