Riva & I returned to Restaurant Portugal in Ossining
last night, Jim, with your review in mind. Great food!
The soups (kale & potato with sausage, bread soup with
seafood) were wonderful and heavy on the garlic.
Grilled red snapper was perfect.
They fell down on the wine again: No vinho verde in the
house. But they brought me a couple bottles and
a recommendation, and what we got was decent.
My only suggestion: If you don't speak Portuguese,
order by pointing. Our waitress spoke only limited
English and confused our order. It wasn't a problem;
it just meant that my soup was late.
Saw Gannet review of Restaurante Portugal and, in
conjunction with yours,decided to check it out. Busy
night,(Memorial Day Weekend),had to wait a while for
the table, but worth the wait! Goat stew and lulas
(calamari) were great, as were shrimp w/ garlic. Plenty
of wine choices on hand. Tried a flavorful vinho
verde, "Lagosta". Too much food, so we had it packed
to go home in order to leave space for dessert. Bread
pudding with a port sauce and a terrific flan. Staff
was pleasant and smiling and "obnoxious" wife was
anything but, being helpful with suggestions and
knowledgeable about Portuguese foods. Thanks for the
Sharon and Pete
