We went twice because the first time although we ate terrible, we saw some interesting plates being served. Well, the second day we went and we ordered calamari, (they were super hard, impossible to eat,), the seafood soup (full of crap fish, bones and fat and a piece of tuna that was super dry), the octopus,(bland-no flavor) the seafood plate to share (tough shrimp, ), .
The waiter didn't say a word. He got the tip that he didn't deserve and didn't even say thank you.
Sangria was terrible. We ordered mineral water but it comes in a 3 oz. baby bottle. Same for all the drinks, served in miniature glasses. These guys don't know how to cook seafood. It was horrendous.

Excellent traditional portuguese food and wine.
Great vibe.
Good portuguese music.
Somewhat fast service (depending on what you order).
Professional waiters.
Not as expensive as one would expect.
Nearby parking.
and once again, fantastic delicious food!
I can't think of anything bad to say about the place. If you take your kids, though, make sure they have other kids as companions, because they might get easily bored.
