My wife had the mussels and LOVED them. I had the Portuguese steak and it was delicious. Local fishermen were eating at the bar with us, and said it's the best place around. We suspect they are correct. A really great meal.

Most dishes I've had are REALLY delicious. It's so nice to have the Maine seafood in season with a flavorful twist. Great view, beautiful environment, lovely! The one thing to be wary of is that the food takes a LONG time to come. Sometimes it's...More

We recently had lunch at the Cockatoo. The calamari, fish soup & stuffed clams were good. The waitress was very attentive, helpful and friendly. We ate outside, which has an incredible view of the ocean.

I have been dining here for years. Not everything is good, but the steamed clams and shrimp Mozambique are great.

Was looking forward to our visit. Up in smoke pretty quickly. One of three couples in a pretty huge restaurant. Started with the "recommended" stuffed clams, tasted as though they'd been there a while. Waitress had little knowledge of Portugese wines. Paella was an amazing...More

While you may not find the best Portuguese food you've ever eaten here, the setting and the charm of the staff totally compensates for this. You will find a unique spot on the coast of Maine with an international team of servers, and an interesting...More
