Ah-mazing! Food was great, service was outstanding. I don't understand why it was not more busy. Only about 4 tables of people. Come on you ate all missing out.

My son and I had two excellent entrees -- seafood fra diavolo and seafood mariscada alonf with portugese soup, side orders of portugese fries and grilled asparagus. Portions were abundant; quality was excellent and serivce was terrific. I would highly recommend this to any of my friends.

This restaurant is in a community in East Cambridge. It's not trendy, but it has the distinct feel of a family restaurant. This is our 2nd time here and the food is still wonderful. We had 2 appetizers and 1 main course. We had whole clams in an incredibly wonderful, light sauce and delicately fried calamari. The clams blew us... More

This place hit the mark for me. Went here with about 12 friends and we all were amazed at the great food! The appetizers were to die for the entrees were all perfectly prepared and everything was brought out at one time with no delays as you usually get with bigger groups. Wish it were closer to Tucson but it... More

We came here for lunch last Friday. My initial impression of the place was confusion as there was no one in the dining room, neither customers nor employees. After waiting for a bit and calling out several times with no response, we headed deeper into the restaurant to the kitchen to catch the attention of the waitstaff. Afterwards, things proceeded...

We Came with a 50% off coupon. really bad. Vegetables in salad were old. Tomatoes were a strange pink color, but somehow every supermarket in town still has good tomatoes. Calamari way too much batter and clearly frozen. Thought it would be fine as casa portugal up the road is good. Just go there instead...

Food is delicious and it is very cheap! Service could be homogeneous because not every staff is great, but I have been there many times and many of them are great. It is simple and not very fancy on decoration,but really good and cheap food.

The food is very good, authentic Portuguese. We were a large party..we ordered many appetizers, seafood dishes, cod fish appetizers, delicious bread, olives, peppers, pastels, etc. every dish was delicious...The servers were attentive and we drank many bottles of Portuguese wine. It was the perfect end to a very nice day with old friends in Boston/Cambridge.

We have been going to the Sunset Cafe for many years and have always found the Portuguese cuisine to the best in the the neighborhood. A very extensive menu coupled with an attractive dining room. It is so surprising that it is not busier than it should be. but that is not an indication of the food quality which is... More

Even though there was a large wedding reception going on that took over half of the restaurant and a lot of the servers attention, the small lack of attention was more than made up for by delicious food and the great value. The seafood platter was generous with large sea scallops and some of the most delicious white fish I've... More
