Another great Portguese restaurant.The atmosphere is very nice and of course the food is very good. As in most of these places I recommend the Cod fish Gomes Da SA. It is small pieces of cod fish with small slices of potatoes in olive oil garnished with olives and slices of boiled egg. The Portugese vegetable soup is a great... More

There wasn't hardly anyone in the restaurant, yet it took forever to get served. After we were done, it took a long time to get the bill!!! We were there for hours. The food was OK, nothing special and we found the prices to be high. There are many good portuguese restaurants in Fall River. I wouldn't recommend this one.... More

Had a Restaurant.com gift certificate and once I was ready to pay bill, I gave my gift certificate and the waitress brought me another with her tip added. Going to call the owner, when asked to speak to the owner I waited and waited and she... More

When I asked the owner what the hold up was he rudely told me that fine dining took time and that if I wanted fast food I should have gone to McDonalds.... More

We went here on a busy Saturday evening. There was a wedding reception and large birthday celebration so we were willing to tolerate slow service. Though clearly stressed and very busy our server took the time to explain how several of the dishes were prepared. The cod fish cakes and kale soup were excellent. Shrimp and beef kebabs were also...

My mom & I desired Portuguese food for lunch recently. We were in the area of Lusitano so it was a convenient place for us to stop. The restaurant opened at 12:00 pm for lunch and we arrived at 12:40 pm. When we arrived there was no one in the dining room...no staff & no guests. We looked around, went... More

Took out of town friends to have a new experience in Fall River. Yes, this restaurant is in the middle of a not so great neighborhood but the family atmosphere and the great food and service inside is well worth the visit. To start we completely enjoyed our Portuguese soup with fresh bread to dip. Three of us decided on... More
