I don't have a review because the restaurant has closed for good. I do not know the reason why or details of it shutting down. The restaurant was a real gem and a haven for the local Portuguese community in Mount Vernon.

Authentic Portuguese cuisine in a homey neighborhood restaurant. A wonderful experience. If I lived closer I'd eat there several times a week. Relaxed and friendly atmosphere. If you can't go to Portugal this is the next best thing!
