To be hones...I was expecting more. 3 of us who grew up Down Neck met for dinner and I've eaten in many of the restaurants in the area. This one...just average. My friend recommended this as his "go to" place. I tasted the other meals at the table...my friend raved about his...I've simply had better in many of the other... More

This restaurant is about an hour from my home however I travel for a great fun meal. I always sit at their huge horseshoe shaped bar because that's where the action is. Much of the shellfish is kept on ice at the bar, and the bartenders prepare many of the dishes. I have never been disappointed with anything ordered, and... More

Had a bottle of Portuguese wine for $30, sells in wine store for $10. The parilhada was nothing more than 2 pieces of broiled fish couldn't tell if it was tilapia... More

Husband and I had been meaning to go to Ironbound district for Portuguese food for a couple years. Seabra's Marisqueira did not disappoint.. Everything was so fresh. I had the dry soup. So packed with flavor and seafood. And the sangria was delish...not too sweet. Already thinking about what to order next visit.

I happened to stay overnight at a Hotel near Newark and with a NYC friend we wanted to find a good place nearby. We picked this Portoguese resto based on the good comments and it was really worth it. Just 10 minutes away with the help of the gps. It's a small place lost in Newark but the waiters are... More

Had dinner with a friend who recommended the place, and knew the streets to get us there. The smells were amazingly good, the kitchen is viewable through a large glass panel, where the chefs are busily preparing the meals. The dining area is crowded, but quaint. Service was good, though the Portuguese waiters spoke broken English and were of limited... More
