“HOME MADE REAL PORTUGUESE FOOF”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Friendly staff, very busy on weekends, I go for lunch. Great soups, and believe it or not steaks.
Offer quail, rabbit, tripe and other odd ethnic dishes -different every day. A lot of good food for reasonable money. Try the flans and puddings......yummy

“Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

Went to O'Dinis last night and enjoyed a wonderful, authentic Portuguese meal. The place and small and fills up quickly, so plan accordingly. Can't wait to go back.

“Authentic Azorean food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2014 via mobile

This restaurant has been here for a while. The owner has been in the Portuguese restaurant business for many years. It's a small place, what we would call a tasca somewhere else. But it's a pleasant family restaurant. Look around and you'll see mostly native Portuguese speakers having a happy time. This last visit I chose a special (I usually choose a special), and as usual it was fish. Red snapper, whole, fried with boiled potatoes and a salad. A glass of red wine would have been great, but I'm staying away from that stuff now... It was nicely prepared (except for the "breading" - I expect the fish to be pan fried without it). Authentic food choices abound. You will not be disappointed.
