The assombroso seafood platter (lobster, cray fish, squid, shrimp, scallops, king prawns, clams, mussels and paella) and some nice light and crisp wine are still in my memories. Have yet to find another place which is comparable to them

This was our first time there & we would go back again. The Sangria was very reasonable (price wise) & they had both red & white. We started off with shrimp N garlic & fried calamari as appetizers. They didn't rush us to order our main entrees at the same time which was nice. There was 4 of us & we all ordered something different & everyone was pleased with their meal.
My only con was they didn't want to sit us until all four of us were there. I wanted a drink but didn't want to sit at the bar & since our table was reserved & empty I told them what difference does it make if they sat two of us first.

this was our second visit and we were not disappointed. it started off a little rough, not the fault of the restaurant. somehow there was an error in our Open Table reservation. Not to worry they found us a booth in the bar area. This wouldn't have been bad except for the overly loud and rude table behind us. When I brought this to the attention of the hostess she immediately moved us to another room. and said not to worry about our salads and drinks they would take care of it. If only all restaurants were this accommodating .
now to the meal. appetizers were claims for our friend and chorizo with onions, peppers in an unbelievable sauce. We all ordered different entrees paella with lobster for me, shrimp for my friend a fish stew with lobster in green sauce and the same for my other friend, but in a red sauce. All the food was way above what many have come to expect from a Portuguese restaurant.
Try it you'll love it.

This is our third time in this restaurant....the second time was too busy so we did not enjoy as much as the first time so we want to try it again. It still has a nice and friendly atmosphere and the food was good. The staff are very attentive and the red sangria very good. So, it is still a nice place to enjoy an evening.

Dinner at the Portuguese Fisherman is never disappointing. The food and service are very good. Large portions so expect to be taking some home for the next day
