We tried this restaurant for dinner on a cold Thursday night. The place is very cute and feels like you're in Portugal. The staff is very friendly and attentive. It was very quiet. The food is so so.

The stuffed mushrooms special was good. The seafood soup was good. The paella valenciana was overcooked. The shrimp, lobster and chicken were overcooked and rubbery. The rice and scallops weren't bad. The chicken special with asparagus and mozzarella was not bad albeit the chicken being a bit dry.

At their prices, the food left something to be desired. We will not go there again.

Went a few times. The food is exceptional just like in Portugal. Service is great. The only thing is they don't make natos (the greatest Portuguese desert).Other than that is a great place !!!!!!!!!!!
