  1. I haven’t been in a long while, but I thought TA Restaurant in Fall River was excellent. I am surprised it didn’t make this list. Especially considering I see at least a couple of restaurants on the list that have no business claiming they serve GREAT Portuguese food. Just saying.

  2. Your funny you call Antonios the best .. Get around try Tilias stk or bourbon stk tips or shrimp moz.. You want flavor with a bang or you want that boring flavor that you think is Portuguese ..

  3. The best place I have found around Fallriver is Pauls place on East Main St.
    The BEST Portuguese Steak around. Try it If you haven’t already. You won’t wanna go anywhere else.

  4. OGil’s in Fall River is great too…there were very few voters….never saw this…? try to run this again?

    • Jesse Baptista

      They use to be near Nash Road on Acushnet Avenue and were just the best! They closed that down and opened up a HUGE place on the top of Nash Road and Church or Brook street? It was much too big and they only lasted a few years there before going belly up.I think they might have opened up a much smaller place back on Acushnet Avenue but from what I have been told they are NOTHING like they use to be. They were by far the best years ago !

      • I believe the former owners of Funchal are the same owners as The Roasted Pig…which is also on this list.

  5. It’s a shame Tilia’s Cafe didn’t make this list. Their food is amazing. Every dish I have had from there was packed with flavor, unlike Antonio’s. It’s safe to say that the majority of people that voted were obviously American and have no idea what real Portuguese is supposed to taste like. It’s not what Antonio’s serves up, that’s for sure.

  6. Inner Bay Cafe was by far one of the worst restaurants I have ever been to or eaten at. The seafood was over cooked and old, shrimp tasted like rubber with no flavor at all the scallops were the texture of tennis balls also with no flavor, the fish of the day was so gross it tasted like I was eatting rotten fish and the rice was undercooked. It just seems like a place that you get the worst of both worlds land/sea food. Dont even waste your time unless your a faithful customer just because its your heritage to support your people, otherwise go enjoy your dinner else where.
