“WOW! Amazing food great price.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

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!

Good choise to visit this restaurant! I was working in the city for a few days and I found this place very friendly, good service and really taste food. I ordered "Dourada" and Porto wine, and they were delicious!

“Solid, authentic Portuguese food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

I enjoyed my family meal at Casa Portugal. The waitstaff were very nice, and the atmosphere completely unpretentious. The menu selection seemed highly authentic to me, centered on fish, meat, and starch. It certainly reminded me very strongly of my meals in Spain and Portugal last year. I ordered the garlic shrimp and enjoyed them a lot, also liked the tastes of bacalhau assado and paella-like rice dish that I tried. Nice house wines.

“Very authentic Portuguese restaurant with great prices in Cambridge neighborhood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

I love this place. I have been there twice in the past year. Try the grilled squid (lots of garlic!) with vegetables and potatoes - just amazing. They also have meat dishes, whole grilled fish, bacala, everything you would expect. It is a small, family-run place with unbelievably cheap and delicious house wine and all authentic food. Also so reasonable - the squid is $15! Portuguese plates and tiles all over the walls. Can be a bit warm in summer as the A/C struggles to keep up with the room, but absolutely worth a visit.
