We were very lucky to grab an outside table & the last perking space in their lot on a Sunday afternoon when a big soccer game was on & a street fair close by. Our waiter Guillermo was great! He made menu & wine suggestions that were spot on. We started with the shrimp & garlic, standard fare in the Portuguese restaurants of Newark but these were by far the best we’ve ever had! Our second appetizer was the clams & garlic also excellent. I enjoyed the grilled veal chops with broccoli rabe & Spanish potato’s, a 10!! Very popular place with locals. Very highly recommended.
Very good service and the food was for the most part excellent...the Valencia pallela (yes I know its Spanish) was excellent and the octopus was excellent too.So why the big drop to only 3 stars? Well, we also ordered a dozen raw oysters and we got at least 2 Stale/old/very fishy/bad oysters and got turned off from having the rest and sent 6 back...and told the waiter why.He took them back and then promptly charged us for it anyway on the final bit ...basically saying (without saying) that we really don't care about bad experience with one of our offerings.
Food was good
