Always a great Portuguese meal at Caravela Family Restaurant. Almost always get the Steak plate with fresh cut fries and two eggs on a marinated steak. Yummy!

Have been coming here for years..great good and affordable prices. Husband always gets the steak plate and I love the chicken plate. Leave room for the Caravela dessert.

Went to Fall River intending to go to a different restaurant, but decided on trying Caravela's. SO glad we did! It's a family-friendly place, and the service was very good. The Portuguese soup was loaded with flavor, and we all enjoyed it. I ordered the pork & clams, and the broth was SOO good! And the serving size was enormous.... More

This restaurant has good Portuguese food for a decent price. The Portuguese Chicken plate is delicious! Served with fries and top with a spicy sauce.

I ate at Caravela recently with friends. Despite it being a very busy friday night we were seated right away. We had our orders in probably the fastest amount of time ever for a sit down restaurant. They give you enormous portions of food for a very reasonable price. And the food was delicious. We all bought different dinners and... More

This was our first visit and we were very surprised at how fast we were seated. The server was very good and the food came out fast. Unfortunately we were a bit disappointed. The portions we large and flavorful but we found the steak a little dry and chewy. I think we may try again but will avoid the steak.
