We ordered dinner for 9 people (4 chickens) which came with delicious roasted potatoes and enough salad for everyone. We added 3 onions rings but could have done with one! The flavour was excellent! Very different from the usual roasted chicken you buy. Price point was excellent. There was enough for our quests to take some home! I am very... More

This place has a good menu and is in a good location BUT... they need to clean up their act. Service is slow and workers seem to be standing around. There are always flies in the restaurant. Food is hit or miss. BBQ chickens are chopped up on a cutting board that looks like it has never been washed and... More

Came across this restaurant by chance, it has a small dining area but busy. The chicken was cooked to perfection and very tasty. It's a Portuguese style type of preparation and presentation .

We went for lunch and had the half chicken for two and it was delicious. The BBQ chicken was moist and had that great sauce, it also comes with 2 sides. We had the potatoes and a green salad which were both excellent. The restaurant provides both the opportunity to dine in or take out, the restaurant isn't big so... More

My meal was great. I had the delicious chicken, the yummy salad, potatoes, Portuguese rice, and more. All the food i had was the best. It was like we cooked dinner ourselves. The atmosphere was good, but not very big. The parking was good, but our only problem with this restaurant was when we went on their website and ordered.... More

Great restaurant if you're looking for a quick meal to feed the family without having to go the fast food route. For $20 you can order a whole chicken with a couple side dishes. Very good meal just make sure you eat the chicken as soon as possible. It tends to dry out if you leave it too long. Also,... More

Heard a co-worker raving about this place so thought it would be worth checking out. A friend and I went for lunch and found a nice little place. You order at the counter and there are lots of great choices. Now my only criticism would be it took a while for our food to come, which is an issue on... More

Our family visited this restaurant for the first time on Sunday, August 7, 2016. My wife, mother-in-law and daughter are Portuguese and I love Portuguese food so we know what we're talking about! The bifana was excellent with very generous portions as was the pulled chicken sandwich. Portuguese soft drinks are available and the galao (coffee) is great.The pastries are... More
