This is one of the best Portuguese restaurants in CT. This is a very casual and cozy restaurant. The service is really good and they try their best to please you. I had the codfish dish of the menu, but I asked to be served...More

This tiny restaurant is busy and crowded. We were lucky to find a parking spot and a table on a Saturday night. The food was good, but the service was very slow. They definitely needed another server.

Having visited with family recently I found this restaurant to be incredibly authentic and delicious. Giant portions, reasonably priced. The decor is a bit dated and honestly not very inviting, but the food really makes up for it. With a little remodel and investment, this...More

This was my first visit to this pub. I have driven by it many times but had never stopped by. A friend of ours highly recommended it for Portuguese food so we stopped by for lunch. The price for two of us was a bit...More

Don't come to this place if you're interested in romantic ambiance, or quiet and dignified dining. It ain't gonna happen here! But if you want some really authentic Portuguese food, served in abundant portions and very reasonable prices, then this is the spot for you....More
