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.

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

One if the best Portuguese Restaurants in Newark, NJ. Seafood soup is a meal in itself. Some of the best Alaskan King Crab legs I have ever had. No need to crack them and get all dirty. They are served cut for you.

Before you do anything once you enter this restaurant walk pass the bar to the middle of the restaurant... Take a good look at the window on your left. Yes, you are looking at all the raw fresh fish, clams, shrimps etc...that was delivered this morning. Remember what you see, walk back to the bar, grab a seat don't order... More

AMAZING FOOD! The portions are big and sufficient for sharing. My husband and I went with friends and had a wonderful time. The waiters are very friendly and polite. Highly recommend going especially if you are a seafood lover. Other options are also available besides seafood which are delicious.
