VERY accomodating, extremely pleasant staff. Engaging and friendly with each one of us in the party of 5 on both days we were there for lunch. The Sangria is exceptional and the food is outstanding. There is absolutely nothing that I disliked other than the fact that it is 575 miles from where I now live in NC. I love returning and always make O’Campino’s a stop. This time I brought my immediate family on Monday and my 3 aunts (ages 91, 80, and 78), all who enjoyed the ambience, the personal attention and the delicious meal selections. You can count on seeing us again on our next trip back home to Newark and you can also be certain that many others will hear from us by word of mouth about the fantastic establishment that we so very much appreciated and enjoyed! The highest of compliments are well deserved. Thank you for presenting us with and satisfying our desires for a great family meal in a special place!

It’s a very quaint restaurant. The service is good and there are rarely large crowds. This place is really a gem. The food is absolutely delicious and affordable given the other Portuguese restaurants in the area. I highly recommend for all occasions, especially a first date

Excellent throwback to Newark Ironbound days of old. Delicious, nostalgic and quality authentic Portuguese cuisine served in incredible large portions with a genuine smile by the family owners. Absolutely lovely and cozy outdoor Churrasco oasis awaits those willing to brave the afternoon sunshine. Wonderful for flambed sausage, Ice cold Portuguese beer and all things seafood. Superb, fun, yummy and friendly local experience!

It was my first time going to Campino. Chris was our waiter for the evening. He didn't seem present as to what I'm use to, in other establishment. We requested lemons with our water and has yet to get it. We ordered the calamari for appetizers and our main course. I had the special which was prawns and Spanish potatoes. It was tad bit salty. My friends meals was perfect one had steak the other ordered shrimp stuff with crab meat the sangria was good too. Nevertheless I'll return once more, hopefully I'll get someone more up beat and more in tune with their guests.

The appetizers were amazing, garlic shrimp,while best with no tails attached, non the less were very good. The Portuguese sausage was also good. Red Snapper and stuffed Salmon were also good, but the Paellas, both were just ok at best. Additionally the Valenciana had very little turf, it was mostly surf as the Mediterranean version. Our waiter was outstanding and did a great job.

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.

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 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.
