We strongly recommend the Sunset Cafe! Delicious, authentic Portuguese food. As good as what we've had in Lisbon.

This is a nice restaurant and the setting is welcoming. The food is excellent and service outstanding. Our waiter was an experienced professional. The menu is true to its Portuguese-American roots. Prices are modest. Our experience was reminiscent of fine restaurants in Southern Europe and the Iberian Peninsula. Definitely will return and have been recommending the Sunset Café to friends.

The food was delicious! However, our server was always rushing us and even took some of the food out of our table when we were not even done with it. Be aware of that and make them understand you want to take your time.

Not a fine dining experience. More like a down-home East Cambridge Portuguese greasy spoon with mild ambitions toward destination dining.

From Our Editors

In spite of its serene-sounding name, the Sunset Cafe is all about vivacious cuisine that enlivens the palate. Mediterranean-inspired ingredients populate the menu, such as braised goat, Portuguese sausages served over flames, and shrimp simmered in spicy sauce. Chefs stuff clams with parsley and onions and crown pan-seared steaks with fried eggs, creating flavor profiles even more harmonious than the bossa nova soundtrack. Diners can subdue spice with sips of wine, beer, cocktails, or Sumol—a fruity Portuguese soda.
