We drove back to NYC from Bushkill Inn. We decided to have lunch at this little restaurant. It was quiet lunch, just 2 or 3 tables with customers. Servers are nice and friendly. I have to admit, the food and value here is better than the Inn. I am sure I will come to this little restauarant again if I... More

After a not so good experience at a nearby hotel, we came across this place and decided to try it out. We didn't have any expectations but were pleasantly surprised by the portions and prices. The chicken is nicely seasoned and was my favorite part of the meal. I would go back for lunch if I'm in the area.

Ok, at first glance the restaurant is not that impressive, but the food is delicious.. It is BYOB so we usually bring a bottle of wine to have with dinner. Every time I have been here it is never busy, be it weekends or weekdays; this can be attributed to the outside appearance and the fact that it is frequented... More

We went to this restaurant on a Saturday night when you would expect them to be at their best for potential weekend traffic, but this certainly wasn't the case and food preparation, taste and quality fell so far below our expectations it wasn't even on the bottom of the chart. We started with an order of chicken empanadas that were... More

The ceiling tiles were stained and some were sagging. When you first walk in there is a smell of a cheap Florida motel that has recently been fumigated. Service was a bit on the slow side. Our food was "OK", but I would not return.

It wasn't really BBQ as you would expect it.. it was more like meat that was cooked over a flame and then doused in salt. The veggies tasted like they had vinegar or some bitter sauce splashed on them that I wasn't fond of. The best part of our dishes was the yellow rice which they gave plenty of and... More

The ambiance is what you would expect from a Portuguese restaurant: outdated, dark, simple. The service was good and the good was excellent. They have BYOB (the a wine shop 5 minutes away) which is always a wonderful feature. The meat was tasty and and the portions super generous. A picadinho (best) can be easily be shared by two. Avoid... More
