Very good food such as; steak, fish, shrimp, littlenecks, mussels, pork and chicken plates. Nice appetizer choices, and good deserts. Parking can be difficult. Weekend's get busy so expect lengthy wait times. Well worth the wait, or just go early and get seated right away.

Very friendly neighborhood restaurant. Unfortunately, our meal was, well, lousy. But maybe we just didn't know what to order. Bumping it up to average with the benefit of doubt. Doubt we'll be back for a second chance.

I love this Portuguese place. I always get the camarao mocambique. It's the best here. Shrimp is cooked perfectly and homemade French fries are to die for. When I want Portuguese food, this is the only place I visit. Parking is on the side of...More

Best steak in town, a nice serloin steak Portuguese style with a red pepper, and a garlicky seasoned sauce. Then to compliment you get fries, rice, and egg to top it off.
