Strangely enough this place does not get nearly as much hype as it should...yes, it is pretty expensive BUT not anymore so than all the other big restaurants that get all the good reviews in PDX and don't serve food nearly as good as this one! The only reason it isn't a five star review is because the service was a bit spotty last night...perhaps the staff was disgruntled about having to work on Christmas eve...in any case, the food was AMAZING! Everything from the appetizers (had tostones con beef and chipotle calamari - the ginger lime sauce was out of this world), to the entrees (Portuguese-style sirloin and vaca frita), to the desserts (Coconut goodies and a chocolate souffle) was PERFECT. Mojitos were good although I would appreciate a more authentic sangria next time. Again, this is definitely one of the better places in the Pearl and in Portland. Dish out the money, you won't be disappointed.
