“Great food!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Really tasty, well served Portuguese food.. Deserts are a chapter apart, you have to come back several times to try them all!

Also a good selection of beers and wine.

“The food is amazing, atmosphere is comfortable, staff is very friendly. The owners come around to say hello to everyone”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

We've been coming here for lunch & dinner for over 10 years, we watch the restaurant grow. It's an amazing place to eat, the food is delicious, they bread is the best by fat, the staff are very friendly and the most amazing thing is the owners come around to say hello to everyone. Good home town Portuguese food really the best in the Tri State area

“Great Steak Sandwich!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Great service, great sangria and great steak sandwich. Friendly wait staff, lively music and great bread to start.
Steaks were cooked perfectly and everyone dining is eating with gusto. Yum! One of my favorites.

“Nice food and well served in a PACKED environment.”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Walking towards this place on a quiet and a sunny day, I was unprepared to find half the town eating here. Miraculously, a table had just opened up for us. They immediately brought fresh crusty bread, butter and a variety of olives as we looked at the menu. We had amazing steak sandwiches and a side of broccoli rabe that was perfection. Everything was too close together for my tastes. I was amazed by how many families with daddies were eating a leisurely lunch at 2:30 om a Tues. afternoon. The flan we had was great as well. I would suggest this as a great place for young kids as there were a lot of them but nobody seemed to mind.
