Churrascaria Novo Mundo has been a family favorite for years. Their rotisserie chicken served family style with fries and rice are delicious. The french fries are always fresh and the chicken has the best seasoning on it. The kale soup is also very good. The service is great too!

Always ask the locals where the best food is! I'm local to New Bedford and this is a family favorite. Carla and her husband are welcoming and always take the time to check in with their patrons. Great Portuguese food and reasonably priced. A real taste of Portugal.

I've been to New Bedford twice this summer and this hole in the wall grabbed my attention twice this summer. There were four of us both times and we were welcomed back by Joana the most helpful and cordial server this side of Portugal. If your trying novo mundo for the first time ask for her. And get your tip... More

We were driving back from a kid's soccer game and a friend mentioned that they were longing for the chicken from this small local restaurant. From the name I expected a rotisserie style bird that was over done. Instead, I found local legend who built his own rotating spit and used a sauce that was complex, mildly spicy and addictive....

I had one of the best flavored BBC chicken ever. I certainly will be back again. The place is small so you got to get there early to get a seat. But its well worth going there.

Recommended by a Portuguese friend my teenage daughter and I took a little road trip to New Bedford for a late lunch on a Thursday afternoon. First of all don't be dismayed by the plain sign and simple neighborhood. The restaurant is pleasant and clean. The staff is friendly and sufficient.The food was amazing! BBQ chicken and Shrimp Mozambique done... More

Visiting the area and wanted to make sure we had some good Portuguese food...we found it! The area of town it is in could be better, but that just makes it more of a dining adventure. A bit of a "hole in the wall" with some interesting decor, but again, adds to the experience. We had the roasted chicken..a must,... More

Love love love the food here, and I'm NOT Portuguese. The only issue I have with Novo Mundo is they're not located in the best neighborhood, and the parking is tricky.. Oh.. and no take out cups for their yummy Cappuccinos.

Went here on a business luncheon with my boss---was originally sketched out based on location and outside appearance. However--what a hidden gem! Roast chicken and fries and a great little wine list. Will go back often!
