Not much for atmosphere a lot of background noise from groups at large round tables. But well worth putting up with it for the quality of the food served. My favorite Portuguese restaurant for shrimp mozambique.

The waitresses are always pleasant and make you feel at home. Food is absolutely wonderful and consistent. Portions are huge. The steak is as long as the plate. Steak sandwiches are huge. Very comfortable atmosphere.

The menu is very limited but contains the basic staples of Portuguese food offerings: Shrimp Mozambique, Portuguese Steak with an egg, Portuguese steak sandwich and Pork Alantejana. Prices are very reasonable.
