If you want to teste a delicious Portuguese cuisine at it best, this the perfect place for. My favorite is shrimp made with Portuguese Olive oil and garlic and don't forget to ask for the famous wine with 7up, they're perfect together.

Wow! The seafood paella is amazing. When I am in town this is one of my main places and meals. They have a lunch portion which is way too much but all the seafood makes it a hearty feast. YUM!
