“It can't get more authentic than this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

I am not sure why it is so hard to get Spanish and Portuguese food "right" outside of the Iberian peninsula... however, this place get's it right every time - we are now regulars. We used to always get the combination seafood plate, but ever since trying the Bacalau (salted cod), we now have a new favourite. In the many times that I have visited Portugual, I don't remember having such a healthy and tasty Bacalau. The Choricao asado is also a favourite of ours. It's a flaming Spanish sausage - and they use sambuca to fuel the flame!! (not sure if that was supposed to be secret). Sara the host always greets us with a smile and makes us feel like we're going over to a friends house for dinner rather than a restaurant. On Saturday's they have their specialty, roasted chicken and I don't think it get's any better than that. Be sure to ask for their piri piri sauce with anything you order. Try to go when there is a soccer game and you get too see Portuguese people yelling at the TV (and each other).. And go figure that you can have a decent authentic meal and a reasonable price.... great times at Casa Verde.
