The food, portions, as well as quality was amazing. The staff treats you like family. The restaurant was clean and food arrived timely and hot. Homemade rolls were perfect for enjoying sauces. A definately diamond in the rough.

We went to the restaurant with our family that came from overseas to visit and we could not have made a better choice . Great food and service and excellent environment . I would refer and if you like Portuguese stile cod fish try the tio pepe cod great choice .

Some reviews made this place and neighborhood sound a little dicey. Well it isn't Rittenhouse Walnut but it was clean and tidy and reminiscent of some small town restaurants in the "old Country". Service was welcoming, courteous and Portuguese low keyed. The Chourico Assado grilled portuguese sausage appetizer was a must for us. The Vegis soup was an typical delicious broth wit a fe veggies. And for me my treat was the fried Bacalhau lunch special. Best tasting most satisfying fish dish since Lisboa. This dish is prepared from salt cod - there is no substitute. Crispy chewy skin, some easy to rid bones and tender white meat center. Good food, plenty of food, fair prices and courteous service.

Our group of seven arrived on the Holiday weekend of Labor Day. The place was not crowded at six thirty. We were greeted by a friendly waiter who brought us plates of black olives and crunchy rolls and butter. We started with appetizers of octopus salad (excellent - $10), seafood bisque (excellent w/cilantro - nice touch $4) and the plate of honor, a flaming plate with portuguese sausage (juicy, amazing, not spicy $10), washed down with a pitcher of sangria (sweet, fruity, close to the actual taste but not quite - $17). Our entrees: Paella (seafood - amazing, huge and full of clams mussels shrimp, scallops and half lobster on saffron rice - $21) a chicken & shrimp dish in white wine/butter/garlic sauce (ok, sauce good) Also had a pork loin dish (ok) and grilled salmon dish that was tasty. Portions are generous. Service was ok and friendly. Dessert was adequate, not special. Choice of Choco Mousse or Flan. Flan bettter than mousse due to springy texture of mousse. Decaf espresso was also tasty but would have been much better served at the same time as the dessert instead of after we finished it. Maybe this was a cultural thing? At the end, we met the owner who brought out to our table two HUGE tiger shrimp, bigger than lobsters (12-15 oz) to show us one of their specialties. He was nice and welcoming. Place is kid-friendly. There is a $4 fee for sharing a entree. The neighborhood doesn't look that nice, but we found safe parking right out front, and the restaurant was comfortable. There is a bar below, but the entrance to the restaurant is on the side street, leading upstairs. Bill was about $100 for three people (we left with tons of leftovers however due to generous portions) All in all, we would recommend this place and we hope to return in the future.

This place is awesome. Food is great. Portions are over filling, service is great. I love the pork chops and the home made chips. Me and my husband always compare this place to a lot of other resturants we've been to and this place always stays at our #1 pick. The price is to me is really reasonable, considering getting 3 pork chops, potatoes, and rice for $13.00. You can beat that.
