Wow! This place is great! I came here starving discouraged by the area but read the reviews! So good I came back a week later. Across Verrazano bridge exit12. Worth it if you are headed to NJ from NY.

We visit here often. Food is always a hit. My favorite is the stuffed scallops and shrimp in garlic. The chistora is always good too. The salmon dinner is delicious and you can't go wrong with The chicken marsala.

Simply Outstanding meal with good friends. Skirt steak was the best with garlic butter. The sangria was sweet and fruity. The almond liqueur was light and tasty. We will be back soon

Jorge and staff always make you feel like part of the family, newbie or regular alike. Always have a great meal and a fun time. Blue Sangria is outstanding as is the red and white.

I came here for a family dinner. It was my first time and it was very nice. The atmosphere was very cozy and quiet. I had the garlic shrimp and it was amazing! By far one of the best that I've had. After that, I had the skirt steak which is served with a side plate of rice and vegetables.... More

Oliveiras is traditional portuguese. The food is authentic and excellent. The staff is friendly and accommodating, and the prices are very reasonable. The wife and I lived in the portuguese section of Newark and Oliveiras is right up there with the best. Would definitely recommend.
