We were reminiscing about a family vacation to Portugal this same time of year, which led us to dinner at Europa South. The appetizers were great, but the entrees were very disappointing; not much flavor and the seafood was overcooked. Not recommended.

Best Sangria in the area, good tapas menu if you'd like to sit in bar area for drinks and apps. Can sit a table in bar area for dinner too. Dining room available as well. Happy hour most days with half price pitchers of Sangria.
