Very nice bar in the front of the restaurant and family dinning toward the back. Wonderful food, family friendly... read more

This insanely crowded family restaurants is an easy walk of about 10 minutes from the train station. We recently visited on a Sunday afternoon before 5 p.m. and were wrong to assume a reservation wasn't needed at that hour. Boy, were we wrong. Luckily we were able to snag seats at the bar, near the window where all the food... More

I love this spot in NNJ has a great variety of seafood, clean with professional service. Best meal in seafood is "Frutos do mar" The lobster, clam, shrimp, oysters, fish were all cooked to perfection !

My wife and I had the Mariscada and the Paella Valenciana (Paeiha Marinheira) and both dishes were fresh and delicious. The ambience is very nice and the tables have good space in between to make it kind of private romantic setting. We will be back at this restaurant.

I went to Seabra's for a work dinner with 11 other colleagues. None of us live in Newark so we didn't know what to expect. However, several different friends who reside in the area recommended this fine establishment. There is nothing that fancy about it but the food is fresh, tasty and served in large quantities. I ordered the Mariscada,... More
