This is I must say, one of the best steakhouses in Newark- if you can find it! Definitely use your GPS to locate this gem of a restaurant located in an "off the beaten tract" in an industrial area. This is not near "Down Neck" or the "Iron Bound" section of Newark. Valet Parking is in a very secure enclosed lot with good lighting. Once inside this fortress, the beautiful brick & stucco interior with antique machinery and farm tools will impress you. Very cozy yet spacious interior with heavy ceiling beams adds to the charm. Unlimited salad bar with lots more than just salads can be a meal in itself. Very friendly and prompt service comes standard. The amazing selection of meats, pastas, fish, soups, desserts is incredible. This is however a meat lovers paradise. Try the all you can eat Brazilian style churrascuria where waiters bring you roast pork, chicken, steak, roast beef, etc. on a sword almost faster than you can eat it! No charge side portions include black beans & rice, fried banana, French Fries, olives, REALLY GOOD baked bread, and more. All of this for $32.00!
Full bar with very good (large) martinis. Bring friends, family, co-workers here. There is a large additional seating area upstairs. Bath rooms are immaculate and tiled with marble. Highly recommend this place. Well worth the adventure locating it!

We try and go to this establishement a couple of times a year. You have to make reservations as there is always a long wait if you don't. This places' repruation is what makes it so popular. Great Portugese style food. Incredible steaks and seafood. A huge list of choices. Never has disappointed!

This place is a total gem! The atmosphere was perfect for couples wanting to be able to have a conversation while enjoying a fantastic meal. He had shrimp, I had swordfish, and both meals were the best we ever had. The portions were huge and the sangria was flowing. The waiters were attentive; my glass was never less than half full before a waiter snuck in an refilled it without us even noticing. I highly recommend this if you are looking for a nice place to enjoy great food.
