Sat at the bar had chicken Mozambique and a lemon drop martini. The chicken Mozambique was by far the worst I've ever had...bland and tasteless. The lady bartender is just plain strange! I ordered a lemon drop martini, and it was basically vodka with a...More

The Portuguese pot roast is the best in New Bedford. Prices can not be beat. Nice little family type restaurant you can bring Vavo to, and she will not complain.

Scallops were spot on. Fresh and sweet. Fish and chips good portion. Chocolate lava cake very good. Maybe difficult to find parking at night. No parking lot. Use side streets. Was a very good meal. Good price also.

One of our local favorites. A very comfortable place with a good menu. Always a challenge to pick one item off of the menu. Prices are reasonable. One of the places that you have to try in New Bedford.

We go almost every month to M&C's 'theme night' dinners, the last Tuesday each month. Price is $28 pp plus drinks, tax, tip. Usually 4 courses: soup, app, mains, dessert, coffee or tea. Inventive, good quality menus and a very up-beat ambience. Love the waitresses!...More
