I have been going to Casa Portugal for many years and always look forward to the return. The atmosphere and the food is the same now as it was 30 years ago. This restaurant delivers consistently high quality traditional Portuguese meals. The wine selection pairs to the region's food.

We go all the time, food is the kind your grandmother will cook for you: very honest, generous portions, not self important, the main goal is to feed you well. You get what you came for, quality is very consistent - never had anything that was not good. Friendly and attentive staff - if they see that you will share... More

This place is amazing! Chicken was outstanding as well as the octopus. Atmosphere of a traditional portuguese dining experience. Menu has all the staple dishes. The food tastes straight out of Portugal.

This restaurant is a gem. We are routine patrons and have never failed to get an excellent meal. The menu provides a good balance of fish, seafood and meats, and the staff is friendly and warm.

Came to this restaurant based on trip advisor reviews. Traveling for business with so many options in Cambridge. Ordered the cheese and prosciutto for appetizer, loved this so much more than anticipated. Nice spicy sauce drizzled over it. Large plate. Steak was good, chicken well cooked. Would def return. Service was reasonable.

We were a family of eight enjoying our night till we decided to have portuguese food. The food was really good but the service was ridiculous. If you are looking to be abused and eat great food, this is it. The only waiter at this restaurant was rude, not friendly snd did not care to make sure that all the... More

Feels like a like a family run restaurant in the old European tradition, and the food and service indeed match that billet. Tasty, affordable, friendly without a touch of presumption

A friend and I returned after an absence of several years to Casa Portugal. It was his birthday and his request that we go back to where the “appetizer sausages are flaming in a ceramic pig”. The atmosphere was the same, comfortable, simple with Portuguese ceramics decorating the walls. In addition to the sausage ($10.00) we had the cherrystone clams... More

I was in Cambridge for a conference at Harvard, therefore unfamiliar with the area. Casa Portugal looked decent so we just walked in. The menu was typical Portuguese, no problem there, but I did have a couple of questions. For example, Shrimps Chef, doesn't tell me anything about the preparation, so I asked the waitress to please describe it. She... More
