Best Portuguese food in the New Bedford area. Try the Acoreano Steak. Must try and experience for yourself. Beautiful interior. Newly renovated dining room area. Excellent for functions on the second level.

We ordered Chicken Mozambique and Octopus. The Chicken was dry and tough and way overcooked. It was served with unseasoned boiled white rice and potatoes and a boiled vegetable. The Chicken was inedible, the potatoes rice and veggies were flavorless. The octopus was tough but edible. After a while the waitress came over and asked how the food was. I... More

I made my second visit to Inner Bay Café on New Year's Eve. The food, service and atmosphere during my first visit was spot on...but could they pull off NYE? The restaurant was packed and jumping when we arrived. We had reservations and were seated upon arrival. The food, the service and the atmosphere was once again outstanding. We were... More

I had lunch here today. It was my first visit to this restaurant. Walking in I noticed the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. There is a small bar at the back wall. Booths lined the windows. The tables were covered with black tablecloths, white napkins. We started with some garlic butter limpets that were broiled, a bit chewy but very... More

This place is located in a quiet neighborhood but has a good friendly ambiance. We went there for a meeting with my husband's school friends from Azores, Portugal. They had good Portuguese food and good wine.

The place is small but not crowded. Heading east on Cove Rd. it is on the left (attached to a bank. The staff is very friendly. A full bar is offered and the menu has quite a few surprises.

Had lunch at Inner Bay Cafe with a group of colleagues while visiting New Bedford for a day. Overall, we found the restaurant to be a nice friendly family restaurant offering large portions of good food. The restaurant offers a range of dishes, some of the very Portuguese and others very international. The group ended up trying quite a few... More
