Such a nice little place. They change their menu daily which I think is cool. It's like a tapas style... read more restaurant so it gives you a chance to try a few different things. We got the Garlic shrimp with rice which was delicious, not too garlic or buttery just perfect!! We also got the grilled octopus which was to die for and the chorizo. The fire chorizo which came in literal fire (hard to explain without showing a picture but def get it). The service was excellent too. It is BYOB read less8/12/2018Carly S.
By far my favorite restaurant in Jersey City. Their menu changes daily, with a few exceptions, but you are guaranteed... read more a fantastic meal no matter what. The chicken/pork sausage has a runny egg on top to provide the ultimate umami..this is a must order. I also highly recommend the octopus. Soft interior, crispy grilled skin, you will not want to pass on this one. Chef Mike and staff provide the most authentic Portuguese experience in a small, yet romantic dining room, with an even friendlier atmosphere. Make sure to get here early, it fills up fast on the weekends! read less12/06/2018Nunzia P.

The food here was delicious. The menu changes often and is written on a chalkboard up front (with prices listed).... read more You can either order tapas from the menu or pay per person for a chef-selected family style meal. We opted to order tapas and ordered about 7 plates for 5 people, which was more than enough food. The atmosphere is quaint and very cozy. There is a large outdoor area, however, it was reserved for a private party that evening. read less4/26/2018Mary M.
LOVED this place. The service, atmosphere and food were memorable. The place is small with a lively vibe. Our server... read more (Tiago) was extremely friendly and service was outstanding. We were in a group of 7 and had so much fun at this restaurant. Sat for over 3 1/2 hours! We opted for the tasting menu at $40 which was very reasonable. The food was different and delicious. We had no idea what was coming which added to the fun. The menu gets changed daily or weekly. It is BYOB which keeps the cost down. Will definitely visit this place again. read less11/16/2018

Very sweet, tucked away restaurant on Grove Street. The menu changes daily and the interior feels like your in someone... read more summer cottage home. The service is intimate and attentive. Many seafood and meat options as it is a Portuguese restaurant. 3 of us went and had several small plates to share- the grilled octopus was amazing. Food was cooked simply but to perfection. BYOB! read less6/21/2018Débora L.
My favorite spot in Jersey City! I came here several times and everything was amazing! Food: it changes constantly so... read more they don't work with table menus. I never had anything I didn't like here. My favorite ever was the codfish salad and the Alheira (it's too good)! Last time we were here we had the "bife à portuguesa" which was great, especially the potato fries! The croquettes are super good too! Service & ambiance: awesome! It's a very intimate space so it's like dining in a portuguese friend's house. Oh, they all speak portuguese too!Ps: we always come here as soon as it opens or out of the rush hours, this way we don't have to wait for a table. Be aware this is a small space! read less2/28/2018
