    Fantastic restaurant near the airport! When you walk in you are met with the display case of cornucopia -- beautiful cuts of meat, incredible fish... The seating was prompt and the ambiance relaxed - perfect after a long day. The appetizer list was almost overwhelming -- but settled on Oysters Rockafeller. Delicious. The remainder of the meal was perfect. Strongly recommended!

    The place was quaint and pleasent, the smell of food is really inviting. I ordered the rib eye (16oz) meh i have had better. My gf ordered the Bacalau that was a little more on the charred side. 2 entrees no alchohol 130$ I would probably return for the seafood as it is a much better option for this restaurant. The service was fast.

    This restaurant looks like it just stepped out of time. I remember a place like this forty years ago in Newark. Maybe if was this one. Friendly family type service and lots o good food. Early on a Saturday evening it was mainly families. Beautiful bought old fashioned decoration.

    Dishes are large and well-conceived. You’ll definitely be taking food home if you order appetizers and a main! The wine list, heavily tilted toward Portuguese wines, is reasonably priced with some excellent selections available. Desserts are a treasure. Service is a wonderful mix of formal and homey.

    While I made this reservation two days in advance (to celebrate Mother’s Day), when my family and I arrived at the restaurant the reception person denied that we were on the reservation list. Meanwhile, my daughter clearly saw my name on both the tablet they used for their reservations as well as on a handwritten list that they kept by the reception desk. A waitress got involved and said that she closed the reservation bookings on the day that I made my reservation, and blamed us for booking too late!! I had to show them my name on their reservation tablet, the confirmation on my phone, and my name on the wall. They seated us but not before trying to place us at an uncomfortable table. We were finally placed at a decent table, the food was excellent and our waitress was nice (definitely NOT like the one we had to deal with when we arrived), but what should’ve been a happy Mother’s Day for my wife was practically ruined by that experience. If it weren’t a special occasion, we certainly would’ve walked out of Campino. Never eating there again.

    Loved the decor and Iberian ambiance. The service was personal and efficient. We all had either fluke or salmon and all were delicious! The flan was the best I have had this side of “the pond”. Extra note: We were very happy to discover that there is a large parking area next to the restaurant. We will definitely be back!

    First time here we went with eight people on a Friday night and it wasn’t that busy. The food was very good and they gave us a big table towards the back. No one rushed us to leave. We stayed around three hours a little bit hard to find not in the main part of Newark, but the food and service were both good.

    Dined with a party of 7. Tuesday night with a reservation (6:30pm) was not necessary as the place only had 3 other tables being occupied when we got there. Our waiter was unfamiliar with the menu. Didn’t even know what type of salad dressing they had. I myself was looking forward to steak as the website did an excellent job of making my mouth water. I ordered the ribeye, medium. I received a well done steak that was about a 1/4” in thickness. I like to call that “minute steak”. Had to ask staff to take away extra glasses and plates off table. Don’t plan on getting water unless you plan to take your glass to bathroom to fill it up yourself. Enjoyed my company but regret choosing this destination. The under new management, needs to be fired in my opinion. Staff, kitchen, and food below good. Get it together.

    My wife and I wanted to try out Portuguese food for lunch in Newark. This one came up with a good rating and it lives up to it. Quaint little place that doesn’t look much from outside, but great cosy ambience inside. Gives a feel of an old town bar and restaurant. The food was great. We shared the Portuguese shrimp rice dish and the Sea Bass. Both were great! The service too was great with the hostess checking on us with appropriate frequency. Will come again the next time we are in town.
