Always very good. Big portions cooked to your temp. Had MR Lamb Chops. Have been here for about 3 months. Prices slightly higher than last visit, as I recall. Note still very good value

Great dive bar accompanied by a separate more family oriented sit down restaurant. Food is amazing. Steak and Prawns are my favorite. Semi casual atmosphere with top notch food.

We were looking for a restaurant in Bridgeport and our first choice was full so we tried Omanel. It was well reviewed on Google. It is a gem. Their menu is big with plenty of fish, meat, and pasta choices. The food appeared to be authentically Portuguese (I've never been to Portugal but most of the patrons were Portuguese). The... More
