The oldest Portuguese restaurant in Boston, Casa Portugal remains a simple rustic gem that serves incredible Iberian food. With its native artwork and painted wall murals, this intimate eatery feels like a traditional Portuguese home. Bread and delicious olives start the meal off right. The appetizers sparkle, including Mexilao a Estoril, an aromatic steaming bowl of mussels in fish oil and wine; and chourico assado, spicy Portuguese sausage served on a small flaming grill. For main courses, try the wonderful caldeirada a Portuguesa, a large metal bowl of clams, squid, mussels and fish in a parsley wine sauce. While many of Inman Square?s Portuguese restaurants focus on seafood, Casa Portugal also specializes in meat dishes. Great choices include a grilled scalloped pork in garlic sauce; and the Bife a Portugusa, a juicy steak with egg on top. All entrees come with soup, rice and their irresistible Portuguese fried potatoes. Finish the meal off with their terrific desserts like arroz dolce; and natas de ceu, a creamy pudding topped with cookie crumbs. If you want to experience the place that started Cambridge?s rich tradition of outstanding Portuguese restaurants, stop by Casa Portugal.

A little piece of Portugal in Cambridge..
The food was great, and the ambience charming.
I would highly recommend this place.
Great food and value. Made a second trip her and decided to highly recommend it. The portions here are large, the wine list strong but inexpensive and most importantly, the food is very good and fresh. Arroz valenciana, the prosciutto plate and any meat dishes are highly recommended. The flan is incredible. It's well worth a trip for a casual group dinner. DEFINITELY make a reservation on the weekend. We've noticed a lot of people don't do it and end up waiting.
Check this place out.
If you are looking for a not so upscale place to spend an evening check out Casa Portugal!
I visited with a group of friends who usually has something to say about places we go, and often, at least one of us is not happy. Guess what, all four of us we were impressed this time! Quality of food, wine (under $15 a bottle) service, and atmosphere were excellent. Our waiter had a very good sense of humor which made our evening even more enjoyable.
These guys deserve thumbs up!
