Absolutely delicious and big portions! My friends speak Portuguese so the atmosphere was as good as the food!

i just attended a wedding catered by Omanels and WOW the food was AMAZING. I never had this much great food at a wedding. I would def recommend them for any wedding that is looking for Portuguese cuisine. I was amazed how they could make 250 meal outside of the kitchen and still have the exact taste as if I was there dinning in.

we ate here before a concert at the Klein auditorium right down the street. The two men had paella and i had the seafood mariscos with brown sauce. It was more food than anyone could finish so we all took the rest home for lunch tomorrow. The kale soup is really good; not your usual kale and sausage soup but a creamy base with silvers of green kale and a few pieces of sausage. Very light and elegant. This is a great family run restaurant.

Bridgeport is in marked contrast to its extraordinarily wealthy neighbors just to the west. In order to find restaurants that are not haute, this represents a nice break from the rigous of Westport and Fairfield. This restaurant in particular is a genuine down-home portuguese place with good food and a pleasant very casual atmosphere. The place is extremely quiet on weekdays but reservations are useful on weekend.

Unfortunately, this is one of the very few real restaurants in Bridgeport with an excellent kitchen and professional wait staff. I have had the opportunity of eating in Portugal a year ago and have come to Omanel several time since that trip. FANTASTIC! It is the real thing for Portugese food including excellent appetizers, soups, and fish.

The soups are a knockout including a very hearty garlic soup and a kale soup. Each is substantial and well-prepared. My favorite appetizer is the garlic shrimp (yeh, I like garlic!) and the flaming Portugese sausage that is served in a dramatic presentation with lots of flames. I tend to not eat meat at this restaurant just because the fish is so good. I prefer any of the bacalau dishes and the claims with pork. The basic desert is flan or teramitsu - neither being the best that I have had. The restaurant has a very European feel to it without any pretense.
Strongly recommend this place, good prices, parking in the rear and I doubt you will be disappointed.
