  • Their Sangria is heavenly. garlic shrimp is amazing. The FOOD & drink here is great period...
  • get the steak on the stone for dinner and the shrimp and garlic for an appetizer!
  • Their grilled shrimp is amazing and the sangria is good. Love this place.
  • Look out for the roaches!
  • Get the Picadinho...which is portuguese for grilled pork cubes, they taste great. Chicken is very well seasoned, and their fries are fantastic.
  • Great place for portugese food!
  • Great food
  • The wait is extremely long if you don't make reservations(Like I did) but it's worth the wait. But the food is amazing!!! :)
  • Delicious food
  • Do not get the Chicken in Garlic sauce. All it is, is salt. Also, prepare to stay for a while as the service is horrible and really slow! To be honest, your better off going to Newark for better food.
  • Filet on a stone is amazingggg!
  • Not sure what the fuss about "on a stone" menu is. They give you the meat raw and you have to cook it yourself. I would cook at home given how expensive it was. Sangria was good though
  • Great Steak on a stone and red sangria pitchers
  • Great place! Reasonably priced, excellent food. Sangria was great!
  • Try the House Salad
  • This was my first time here and it will not be my last. I ordered the clams in a garlic sauce for an appetizer and was not disappointed. The filet on a stone was great. Ask for extra garlic butter.
  • Food is great but the servers suck!
  • OMG this place is amazing
  • Surf and turf on a stone!!!! Yummy
  • Filet mignon on the stone= ahhhmazing!! :)
