This place seems have good cooks but poor servers. I visited this restaurant for the first time, party of six, on father's day and was disappointed at the type of service we were given. The menu they initially gaves us was taken away from us ten minutes later and replaced with another one that had less items than the first... More

Food was bland and the service arrogant - all for a high price?!? Please save yourself the trouble and go to Newark Ironbound or other restaurants for the authentic Portuguese/Brazilian experience.

Great place. Even many locals don't know about this great Portuguese option. You can compare it to all the others in the area and you'll find that this the your best bet. Not too crowded. Great authentic Portuguese cuisine. Good pricing. Nice atmosphere. Go here. You won't be disappointed!

Only down side is small parking lot - and street parking can be hard to come by sometimes. As a woman walking alone to my car I was... More

I am first generation Portuguese born in Newark, and I can say with certainty that this is the BEST Portuguese restaurant in the area - The whole experience.. Food, Service and Ambiance. Everytime we come into Elizabeth to visit my father, we take him out to this restaurant for a nice meal. The house red wine and Sangria are both... More

Had a wonderful business lunch here in late September 2010. This is an old school place but the food is up to date. Large portions, well-served, and a very friendly wait staff.

First off, you should know that my wife is half-Portuguese (half-Colombian) and my father in-law is 110% Portuguese, so we hit *a lot* of Portuguese restaurants. We found this gem thanks to a commercial that my father in-law saw on his Portuguese channels on the Dish Network. Anyhow, we went me a birthday dinner and were blown away by the... More
