I loved this place, all the tables were spaced out perfectly (due to Covid restrictions). I definitely plan on coming back. Nice variety on the menu and reasonably priced. Tried their own vineyard's wine and it was amazing! The Tomahawk special for two was perfectly seasoned and more than enough. Service was excellent and the parking lot was a huge plus. Definitely give it a try. You won't be disappointed!

A delightful old school neighborhood restaurant a hop and skip from Newark Airport located in the Ironbound District of Newark. Excellent crab and shrimp appetizer followed by a perfectly grilled rib eye steak. In fact, much better than most high end steak houses. The flan for dessert was freshly homemade with a silky texture. The staff was very attentive and gave great recommendations. We will visit again on future trips in and out of Newark Airport.

What a terrific find! The Paella Valencia is spectacular. Off the beaten path but well worth seeking it out. The Sangria is a must!

Use to come to this restaurant ally few years ago and it was good. Haven’t been there in awhile and decided to take my family for dinner. Food was very mediocre but what made it worse was the service from our waiter! Was very rude and not professional at all. Sorry won’t be going here anytime soon. What a shame!!!

I chose this restaurant based on good reviews. Unfortunately, 2 out of 5 Entrees were inedible. Then the Salmon with Crab and the steak were tasty, but gave us stomach pains. Appetizers and dessert were okay. On the bright side, the servers were friendly.

We have not been to this restaurant in awhile but it is still very good. The food and service were very good and it was early on a Friday nite so it was pretty quiet. We would definitely go back.

The food was absolutely delicious. The service was very slow, which we were OK with since we needed to kill time. Bathroom needs updating. Could not flush and card machine was down. Cash only.

We came here super randomly because my mom wanted some Portuguese food for her birthday. It was INCREDIBLE. Portions were large. The Paella was absolutely amazing. I would go back every single day if possible.

The grilled octopus and garlic shrimp were delicious appetizers. The portion could have been a bit larger but otherwise it was perfect. The paella rice was moist with perfectly cooked seafood. And the sangria was so good that we ordered a second pitcher for the table. It’s worth the ride to Newark for a nice night out

It was ok. My friend and I split the seafood paella. The shrimp were over cooked and neither the lobster or scallops were sweet or had any real taste for that matter. The paella was just average. My husband had the rabbit which he did not care for. He has had rabbit at different restaurants before and didn’t care for it here. He later admitted he should have had seafood. The place is older, could use a little love. Doubtful we will return.

Ordered our filet mignon medium, they were all well done. Sangria is just juice. Wanted to like this place because of the raving reviews but unfortunately that wasn't our experience.

This is a great Portuguese restaurant. The sangria has to be the best I have ever tasted. The food is always amazing and the dessert is unlike other places in the area. The ambiance is old world classy. It can be a bit noisy if they have a party going on upstairs but otherwise, a very good hidden gem. I will be returning.

We went early so it was not too busy. Great service and could not have been better. Had the seafood Paella which was delicious! Several of the Mussels didn’t Open so we couldn’t eat them. The prices are a bit high but safe neighborhood to eat when in Newark. Overall really good restaurant

First time to this restaurant but not the last. Portion sizes are great and served very well.
Being hungry helps because there is a lot to eat.
Each of us had something different, steak, chicken and paella, so we could share and it’s was all great,
Service was great.
Desserts were great.
We will be back.
Also, they have a small parking lot so that makes it easier for parking.
