Delicious seafood. Service is great and very professional. The salad put on the table for everyone has white asparagus. One of the best parts of the meal. Like a quick trip to Portugal. And, there's parking in the back.

You are not expected to spend any money. But if you go to dinner you should probably allow yourself $50 a person with a drink and entree.
Do you take credit cards?
