We visited last night after not going for a few years, time just slips by, we had and outstanding dinner which was fairly priced. Everything is made to order so you can't be in a rush, but well worth the wait. We will definitely return.

A must, when visiting New Bedford area. The Seafood cataplana, made with cod, scallops, shrimp, clams, seafood broth, saffron, and chorizo sausage. Fabulous flavors. The pork dish with clams was also delicious. The broth was rich and velvety. Was served with potatoes. Wines are very well priced, terrific selection. We were served by the owner, his extremely talented wife is... More

Lovely small venue; one wall is a huge mural done with tiles. The house was was delicious. There is one menu for lunch AND dinner albeit their website reflects they have separate offerings. Our codfish cakes and fresh goat cheese were delicious. The pork and littlenecks was very tasty, but, as it seems at most Portuguese restaurants, the pork was... More

The decor is very pretty and the service was excellent. We started with the cheese plate stacked with fantastic Portuguese cheese,olives and wafers. The special of the day was octopus stew which was described perfectly by our server. Three in our party ordered the special which was very tasty but is definitely for adventurous diners! The shrimp Mozambique was not... More

Went here on the recommendation of a friend, and we weren't disappointed! This place is small, but very nice. My husband and I ordered the Portuguese steak in a whiskey & coffee sauce. It was delicious. It was served with rice and thinly sliced fried potatoes. Our dining partners ordered the shrimp mozambique, and said it was the best version... More

I am astounded that this GEM of a Portuguese restaurant has eluded my radar for all these years. The ambiance has a European flair and is tastefully decorated. Your gaze will be fixed on the lovely wall tiled mural. Linen table cloths and cut glass water goblets round out the dining decor. My meal was from the "specials" but they... More

I have been patronizing the Cinderella for a couple of years and always wonder why I don't visit more frequently. After reading some of the reviews, I decided to write one of my own and set the story straight. Cinderella's menu is very mainland Portuguese with some touches from the Azores. This is important because here is a difference. Having... More

Again I must sing the praises of the city I grew up in!! Cinderellas is yet ANOTHER GREAT PORTUGUESE restaurant in the city. The food was delicious, the ambience lovely, the owner could not be nicer! I had the Portuguese steak which was very good..the sauce lick-the-plate yummy. The only thing that would have made it better...the glass of wine... More

This restaurant consistently presents great basic Portuguese cooking, with specialties such as Pork and Littlenecks and Chicken Mozambique, in a surprisingly lovely room on Columbia Street in Fall River. The ambiance is inviting, the wine list is amble, and the service is warm and friendly. Ask for the stewed plums when they are in season!
