We were only in the Newark area for one evening but wanted to make the most of it. We read the reviews of Portugalia and decided to try it. We were glad we did! The bar side seems very much like your local neighborhood meeting spot and the restaurant side feels very much like you're dining in someone's home - there's even a TV in the corner set to the Portuguese channel. For two of us, we ordered a salad, paella, and their salted cod fish entree - all to share. We were some of the first diners that evening so we didn't see portion sizes before ordering. Oh my goodness, we had enough food for a family of six easily. The food was beautifully presented and so fresh, everything was delicious. Our waiter was very friendly and very attentive. We tried our best to finish what we could but there was just no way. Our waiter seemed to think we didn't have enough food and couldn't understand why we weren't finishing it all. If you go, go HUNGRY. You won't be disappointed!
