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!

If you want to enjoy an excellent European dining experience without traveling to Portugal or the Azores look for it at the Cinderella restaurant in Fall River, Massachusetts. The decor, the food, the wine, the service, everything is world-class. We like looking at the tiled full wall mural and pretending we are in Lisbon while we sip wine and enjoy... More

Cinderella lived up to the hype and raves all of our friends had bestowed on it. Great Portuguese food and a wine cellar, including a collection of vintage ports, like you've never seen before. Luis takes care of the dining room, while his wife creates magic in the kitchen. My wife and I visited on a date night, leaving our... More

First time at the little place in the Fall River MA. We ordered the cheese plate, 5 different types of cheese, very good. My partner had the Grilled Tuna I the Swordfish. Both meals were equally impressive with bold full flavors of garlic and spices. Service was adequate; our waiter was more interested on the table next to us, looked... More

Absolutely authentic Azorean cuisine. One of my favorite Portuguese restaurants in Southern New England.
