We've been here at least 4 times this summer and totally love it. The mariscada in red sauce is excellent. Their chicken is amazing. A little heavy on the salt with the pork and clams and their soups but over all an excellent experience. lf you go on a Friday or Saturday you may be treated to some music. Campy but fun.
we had the mariscada and costoletas de porco. mariscada is seafood/tomato base
stew that is excellent as well as the grilled pork chops and fresh bread . a return trip is in the near future.
My husband and I have been to this restaurant 3 times in less than 6 months and we love it. Really, really good! Try the shish-kabob!
First thing I noticed was how spotless the dining room was. Nice warm bread and butter started the meal. Salad bar was so-so. I heard the lentil soup was not good. Had the shrimp and scallops with white wine and garlic sauce, potato slices, and rice. Shrimp were large and good quality. Hope to go back soon.
It's so nice to have a restaurant with a touch of portuguese nearby. The bread they start you off with comes from Newark which great (something to do with the water I'm told). It is BYOB, but they have glasses and ice on hand & they're very helpful. The be prepared to spend about $20-25 a dish, but the meals are plentiful. The pork is amazing as you'd expect from a portuguese restaurant and the seafood plentiful. The other dish we had was the Rib Eye steak, HUGE!
A nice quiet place for dinner and a great break from the big chains. I'm definitely recommending it and will be back.
