Very enjoyable, interesting tasty meals. My family had three different choices and all were well enjoyed. Just a few minutes outside of EWR for the pre or post travel meal.

Was recommended by hotel we stayed in. Very varied menu with Portuguese, Italian and general fare. Food was very good and place was crowded for a Friday night. Service was a little scattered but they were very busy. We had the chicken which was very good and the Italian plates were also well received. I would have liked to see... More

Great Portuguese food away from the iron bound. The staff was friendly and inviting . This place was hopping for a Wednesday night and the food came out very quickly.

Came here around 9pm for ribs while we awaited for someone to land at Newark Airport. The Ribs are the best even at an hour before closing. Will stop here each time we are in the area for the Ribs and a glass of Sangria

All our food was overcooked from the veggies to the fish.Sangria was cheap wine and Sprite topped with vodka (?). The place was fully packed which could mean that I was unlucky but....!

The food is cooked and is fresh. There is also a variety of foods, and not just chicken and French fries. The prices are not bad.

Some friends and I decided to go out for some food but couldn't settle on 1 type of cuisine. We settled on Algarve and the menu covered us all. From garlic shrimp, to pasta to wings we all were able to find something we liked on the menu and they cooked it all well. The only thing better than the... More

You can not beat the Pork Ribs here. We were in town dropping someone off at Newark Airport so came here for dinner. This is our 3rd time here and weren't disappointed at all. Ribs took a while to come out of the kitchen but after we got them they were well worth the wait. We also ordered the Red... More
