I had read a review of Caldeiras in my local paper and it was so glowing that I knew I had to give it a try. We quickly invited some close friends that we hadn't seen in awhile to meet us there on a Thursday night. Unbeknownst to us, that enabled us to take advantage of a very nice "2-for" special where you get a choice of perhaps 8 or 9 lovely meals, plus whatever specials they were having, along with a bottle of wine (with four to choose from) for $24, a steal.
My wife chose the shish kabob special which was perfectly cooked and expertly seasoned. It featured lean chunks of beef interspersed with slices of chorico (Portuguese sausage), onions and green peppers. The meal came with two outstanding potato cakes, mixed roasted vegetables, and lots of oohs and ahhs from my wife!
I ordered crispy fried fillets of fish with shrimp and garlic sauce and it was simply outstanding. Perfectly cooked and seasoned, it came with amazing fresh cut french fries, very good rice, and by the time I was half way done with the meal, I was already planning my return trip, it was that good.
We split a fantastic Tiramisu that was just perfect, and excellent coffee. Our friends has similary excellent meals, and it was agreed that this was a real destination restaurant, as good as any big-city dining experience we'd had. The bill came to an astonishing $76 for four people, and it was worth twice that.
VERY highly recommended.
