We enjoyed an excellent Father's Day celebration. The meatball appetizer was delicious, the eggplant outstanding, and the grilled lamb chops perfect. We have only two small quibbles about service. While our server was excellent, she did not show us the bottle of wine before opening it, nor did she offer us the customary taste. The other minor complaint is that our main dishes were brought out before we had finished the appetizer, leading to some awkward rearranging of the table.

Both the veal and eggplant parmigiana were amazing. Service staff was attentive and personable. Our favorite restaurant for these dishes. Topped off with cannolis.

The manager Jen, who has become our friend, always makes sure that our experience is perfect! From the quality of the food to the service that we receive from all who work at Joe’s Original. I have never met anyone who works at this restaurant that I did not like.

We are low-key and wanted Lobster to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We have been to Fresh Catch before thought it to be an ideal place to celebrate. The lobster was great and our server (I think Melissa) was very good.

About the restaurant
BarCa is defined as a fine dining restaurant: signature cuisine, served informally in a sophisticated environment. It aims to be an innovative space, not only with regard to the approaches it proposes, but also by simplifying and breaking some basic rules of the service, which is rigorous but relaxed.

For Luis Bettencourt, and Rosa Bettencourt there is only good cuisine and bad cuisine. Yours defines it as a cuisine of flavor: refined taste, perfect technique and excellent product. The basis of its gastronomic philosophy lies in its influences and references: travel around the world, passion for Africa, knowledge of traditional Portuguese cuisine, life in Portugal!

Everything that we ordered was delicious. We had the bread and cheese, house red wine, filet mignon gnocchi (special), surf and turf, shrimp mozambique, BarCa seafood, tiramisu, flan, and rice pudding. Been to Portuguese restaurants in Tiverton, RI and New Bedford. BarCa is hands down the best!

Well I made these reservations 2 months ago in anticipationof Mother’s Day. I never got any message stating that these reservations were not valid and I even got a confirmation email the day prior confirming my reservations for Mother’s Day at 1pm. I showed up and was told they were not taking open table reservations today. I showed the host my email and he said he would try to seat as soon as he could but wasn’t going to honor it. I walked away and waited. My husband wasn’t accepting and told him he had to seat us and they did after 15 minutes and multiple inquiries and my husband being very upset about the mistake made and no one trying to rectifying it and hoping we would just wait.
