We were looking for someplace different to eat and stopped here for dinner. The hostess was so nice and sat us right away. At one point during dinner she walked by and noticed I had eaten all of my baked potato and asked if I wanted another! Both the hostess and our server were exceptional - they had a knack... More

If you have the time you should check this place out. It's only crowded on weekends and holidays and not open on Mondays. Prices are good for what you get as the portions are substantial. You get a lot of choices and Extras with your meal but they are very slow. This shows in the food as I've never had... More

It's a little away from the main roads, but the Portuguese food was perfectly prepared. Seafood, steak, paella, soup, etc, were all delicious. The staff was helpful and friendly.

Many, many moons ago, I used to attend school across the street. It took many years later to eat at this gem of a place. Although I live in another state now, I make a few road trips a year, and I am never disappointed. Last week I ordered two shrimp Mozambique appetizers, a clam boil, and a fried seafood... More

This is a great place to enjoy a relaxing meal. I had the turkey special and my wife had the Portuguese steak and egg dinner. Turkey was tender and I especially liked the stuffing. We will come back here again.

Went on a Sunday Afternoon. Not very crowded. Started out with drinks and a cup of soup. The Kale Soup was very good, with plenty of bread. The meal however was not so good. The Pork Alentejana was rubbery and tough! The broth was also a yellowish broth which I've never had before. It didn't taste very good. The rest... More

Portugal colonized many areas of the world and the exotic variety of Barcello's Portuguese food reflects this: the menu features wonderful dishes from Portuguese colonies in Asia, South America and Europe as well as everyday American dishes such as Lemon Meringue pie. The restaurant itself is clean, light and airy--it has the feel of a place whose owners are proud... More

We went to Barcellos on Saturday 9/19/2015, the food, service, drinks, dessert, and price were all outstanding.

We finished the... More
