We recently went here with a nice size mixed group of children and adults. The decor is calming, tables spread out nicely and with plenty of room. The food is absolutely fantastic.

Lived in the area 25 years ago and this was a favorite restaurant of ours and I am pleased to say I forgot just how amazing it was!! We ate in the lounge and it was cozy. Flounder Franchise delicious, Shrimp Alfonso spectacular- as was the pitcher of their signature Sangria. A must if you are in the area!

It was years since we dined here and it won't be long till we do it again. We were a party of 4. The service was very responsive. The table setting was 4 star quality. The food is prepared on order so there's a bit of time for service, but that is expected in good restaurants. It also gives the... More

Best Portuguese in Monmouth County, we've been going for years as the food is so authentic, with a band and dancing on Saturdays. In the summer it is not an easy place to get into and reservations are a must, but off season you can get a table usually in a few minutes. The staff is wonderful, their sangria is... More
