Lovely off the beaten track restaurant with a great outdoor space in the back. Food was beyond our expectations. We were 2 couples using a Groupon for dinner for 4. 3 Orders of Palela and one of stuffed lobster tail (extra charge) all were fantastic with plenty to bring home. We started with Calamari and Clams Casino. The big portion of Calamari was lightly breaded and not a bit chewy. Eight Clams Casino also good and enough to share. a large Sangria was included in this offer and enjoyed by all.

We have been here a number of times and enjoy coming back. food is great and service is excellent. Limit of $28 is 99% of menu so you have only 2-3 items that are extra cost. We will be back again.

From Our Editors

Like other Mediterranean cuisines, Portuguese food is deliciously heavy on olive oil, garlic, onions, and wine. But unique to this cuisine is its intercontinental flair; in many dishes, you'll find Asian rice, African peppers, and cinnamon, cloves, and ginger from India. Portugal's globe-spanning history has brought all of these influences together, and PortuCale Restaurant & Bar does all of them justice with a seafood-heavy menu that features six varieties of shrimp alongside specialty meat dishes such as braised portuguese steak.

The space itself is festive and distinctly Mediterranean—think dark wood furnishings set against exposed brick. Bartenders make pitchers of sangria and keep 20-year-old port wines on hand to ensure that the atmosphere matches the liveliness of the decor. They also sell fine cigars that guests can smoke on an outdoor patio that's reminiscent of a medieval courtyard.
