“Great food but overrun with roaches”
Reviewed August 24, 2010

I have been to this restaurant several times before and enjoyed the food. This time I was totally disgusted by roaches on the wall and crawling on the table. The management says they have an exterminator in every week.....not working.
Food is very good but I won't be back any time soon.

“Cute but not tasty”
Reviewed January 28, 2010

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 !!!!!!!!!!!
