My husband's last name IS "Bacalhau", doesn't get more Portuguese than that! We enjoy the bar side atmosphere or the outdoor tent on a cool afternoon with a pitcher of red(sangria that is) its unique With peach notes. People think "iron-bound" Newark is where you go for great Portuguese...that's fine with me, keep this gem on the DL so we can always get a table.
Everything is delicious so explore the menu but always start with the garlic shrimp it's unlike anyone else's. Come hungry they have rodizio (Picanha aka sirloin med-rare;one of my favs) ends with grilled cinnamon/pineapple. True story:My husband and BIL went head to head one night and the waitstaff + management thought they were boxing it to go(meat-pigs)lol, the rest of us thought they were going to need to be hospitalized. Never have I seen so much consumed at one meal...not even thanksgiving. Enjoy being in the know but only share it with your besties;) The rest of us want to keep wait times reasonably way under an hour.

Hi Dorene, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We always appreciate hearing back from our guests. We are extremely delighted to see you had such a wonderful time with us! We work hard to bring a great meal to all of our guests so it really does bring a smile to our faces to see you, your husband and brother in law enjoyed everything, especially the rodizio. We certainly wouldn’t mind if you told a few extra people as well! We hope to see you soon.

We were so excited and happy about this dinner that didn't take too many pictures. The Rodizio is amazing and their paella is to die for. Big servings. A paella is good for 2 and left over. Their parillasa meats are best cuts. No complains!
The place was packed and the outside sitting also full. We didn't have to wait much but it was just luck as we took the last table on a busy Friday night.
Dishes were well presented, appetizer (chorizo)
Was grilled and with flames and all in front of us. Large portions. Great flavor. Service was attentive.

We will be back!!

I have frecuented this restaurant many times and not once have I been disappointed. The wait staff is very friendly, accommodating, the food portions are generous, fresh and delicious. Great place to go in the weekday or to celebrate.
