“Impressed!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

We had the pleasure of eating at Valenca last night with friends and we were all happy with our meals. I opted for the 'steak on a stone' and it was a generous slab of filet... The It was also delicious!! The sides were also fresh and tasty. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and prompt. We will definitely return. The only negative was that someone in our party requested a 2nd serving of bread and it never showed up.

“Enjoyable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

Visited last night. On the square in Easton; parking always an issue. Pleasant surroundings with
an interesting menu. Service was a bit spotty, but ok, with tasty food. I have a real weakness for
Mexican coffee (coffee with Kailua and whip cream) with desert. It was served in a brandy snifter: outstanding!! Our return is assured.

“cozy spot in the square so worth visiting!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

I had initially looked at this spot awhile back as a bridal shower venue and had been meaning to try it..it definitely did not disappoint.

Whether you need a date night or going out with the ladies- this spot is just fantastic.
recently went to dinner with a friend- cold night turned warm(literally) with a spot by the fire place, great service and amazing food!!

drink list is not to be overlooked.
and our meals were fantastic!!--* the salmon and chicken francese.
dont miss the choc raspberry mousse for dessert either.

as mentioned earlier: great space for events, gorgeous decor-very warm and inviting!!
they also had outdoor seating but it was too chilly.

we will definitely be back, cant wait to bring more friends!!

“Great food, just be prepared to wait...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

This is a wonderful Portuguese restaurant, but if you go there on a theater night, you BETTER give yourself plenty of time for dinner. Their service is snail pace and you may bend up rushing out of there or passing up desert if you don't allow enough time. It's a shame, because their food is excellent. If you're not going to a show - then enjoy your dinner!

“A Hot Spot in Easton”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

Easton is definitely on the map with the number and quality of restaurants popping up in the Lehigh Valley. Valenca is one of the better stops for sure. My wife and I typically take advantage of the bar scene here. While the bar tables tend to be a bit crowded if you're sitting next to the walkway, the bar itself and the seats at the end of the bar are great.
The beer selection here is above average and they have a few really good options. All other aspects, liquors, wine list, etc. are on par.
As for the food, the appetizers are what we usually hit, the crab martini is the best on the menu!
I can't comment on the entrees as its been a year or so since we've actually had dinner here, but nevertheless its a common stop for us when in the area and one I recommend.
