Four of us had a terrific dinner at Caravela. Spur of the moment drop in for dinner, and a first time for all. We were craving Portuguese food and thank goodness we arrived with empty stomachs! Having read some of the past reviews of this restaurant, want to comment that although the restaurant wasn’t full; my sense is the service is still attentive - at least we were treated well. It feels like one of those great local places to go often and is reliable, and I understand it’s been around for 20 years.
Flavors in all the dishes were good, and our waiter was helpful with our questions. Our appetizers included Stuffed Squid, Hearts of Palm salad and octopus with chickpeas and potatoes. Dinner entrees included Roasted Monkfish Goa with a nice dose of curry, delicious; Carne de Porco Alentejana – medallions of pork and littleneck clams with potatoes, wonderful; Chicken Macao, very good; and pan seared Scallops, excellent!
Warning, the portions are really large, so if you’re planning on dessert…you might be full. We saw the dessert selections, but just couldn’t eat another bite. Enjoy!
