This hidden gem delivers in taste and quality daily. Make sure you make reservations because the wait can be long at times. Daily specials consist of seafood specialties but you must try the shish kebab served with a long skewer and perfectly seasoned. The Portuguese steak served with the traditional fries and special sauce is incredible! Trust me you will not be disappointed !

My wife and I enjoyed this place very much. The Portuguese steak was prepared just right. Great place for a unique dining experience. We will definitely go back again

Great food...friendly staff! I was I in Westport for work and the restaurant was located close to my hotel. I was pleasantly surprised by the good food selections which were very reasonably priced. Complimentary olives and delicious warm bread started the meal. Seafood was fresh and well prepared. We had the nightly special which included a bottle of wine for $60....a great value! As others have mentioned, service was great and not rushed. Lots of families and those who seemed like regulars. We sat in the bar area, but there was a larger room off to the left of the entrance.

We went for lunch - so this review is based on lunch. Very disappointed. ALL the specials were 'American' food - it you wanted Portuguese, you needed to go to the much more expensive dinner menu. Found it lacking in atmosphere, choice and a bit pricey. If you are looking for a great Portuguese lunch, I would not recommend this place. There are too many other great choices within a few miles.

One good indication of the delicious food at Portas da Cidade - if one does not arrive early enough, there is no place left to park!

Excellent Portuguese food served by warm and happy staff. We tend to choose some of the same things because they are so good: Portuguese Pops and bread assortment, crispy Calimari to start the meal, Bifana, Portuguese steak (with egg and hot pepper), Chicken Mozambique, Linguica sandwich, or a major favorite - Paella.

The meal is always excellent. They offer a great selection of wines to accompany the meal. The full bar also has mixed drinks and specials, although we tend to stick with wine.

Our last visit included (1) Paella which was loaded with seafood, pork and chicken, and rice in a savory sauce; (2) Linguica Sandwich with "chip/fries" which are thin sliced french fries shaped liked potato chips; and (3) Portuguese Steak that came with rice and chip/fries. All of it arrived piping hot, perfectly cooked and presented attractively by our friendly server.

Delicious!
