I am very familiar with Portugal and can tell you that this is real Portuguese food. I had prawns, gambas. Not easy to eat but very good. My friends had bacalhau, It is the national dish in Portugal and can be prepared in many ways. This fish dish was not of the stinky kind and was excellent. We were three... More

The food is pretty good but the restaurant reminded me of some kind of sports club :). The staff was really friendly.

I thought the food was very good. The service was not so great. If you like Portuguese food you will be satisfied, but allow sometime to wait for your food.

This simple Portuguese restaurant probably has a menu but I never bother with it: from the time that I decide to eat here to the time I know what I'm going to eat and I'm looking forward to the tastiest gambas in Mainz. Order the first portion with batas a murro and the second portion without. Be sure the wipe-up... More

I visit cafe Portugal rather often for its great food at a reasonable price. It's a small family restaurant, service is great! I would not recommend it for special occasions where you need an intimate atmosphere because tables are joined, but we went there often with our friends and family and had a great time and great food and we...

Small portuguese restaurant. Fairly cowded but got a table without reservations. Had traditional codd fish dish with vinho verde. Food is good and authentic. Service is friendly. Good value for the money.

Occasionally the service might be a little haphazard and the food is not aiming to be sophisticated, but we have come here 4 or 5 times already. A bottle of vino verde, some olives, aioli, and bread followed by a fish dish of some kind makes for a relaxed pleasant meal. There are more elaborate starters but the olives are... More

I ate here tonight. It was a treat to have my favorite fish, dorado, here in Mainz. Service is slow, but wine is reasonably priced, and you can watch Portuguese TV while listening to fado from their ipod (a somewhat surreal experience). In my opinion, the olives were pretty boring. Nothing fancy, but good value for money, and a refreshing... More

We ate here for the first time last week and were very favourable impressed. The food was different to the usual offerings and it made a nice change. I had salted, dried cod with chick peas and potatoes which was very good and my companion had sole - unusual round here! The black olives we had with our drinks were... More
