We went early so it was not too busy. Great service and could not have been better. Had the seafood Paella which was delicious! Several of the Mussels didn’t Open so we couldn’t eat them. The prices are a bit high but safe neighborhood to eat when in Newark. Overall really good restaurant

Food was excellent, my only complaint was the waiters attitude. Very unapproachable, seemed everything we asked for was a bother to him.

The garlic shrimp app was outstanding. The steaks were excellent too, particularly the picanha. Serving portions are very generous.
Whole heartedly recommend this place.

First time to this restaurant but not the last. Portion sizes are great and served very well.
Being hungry helps because there is a lot to eat.
Each of us had something different, steak, chicken and paella, so we could share and it’s was all great,
Service was great.
Desserts were great.
We will be back.
Also, they have a small parking lot so that makes it easier for parking.

Great experience! Exactly what we were looking for in a “locals” eatery. Beautiful restaurant with fantastic food and excellent staff. A Portuguese gem in a traditional neighborhood. Would definitely go back!

This was a hidden gem. The place takes you back to an old world country setting. The service was attentive and the food was good. The sangria had to be the best one I’ve ever tried. It had the perfect balance between liquor, fruits and flavor. The desserts were amazing. The only downside was the large parties they have going on upstairs, where the kids running around create twice the noise. Otherwise, it was a great experience. I will definitely be returning soon.

The table would give you mixed reviews. Some of us loved our dishes and some very disappointed. None can remember what we ate. But it is noisy - we love the casual ambiance. Entering and seeing all the fresh fish is great and the House Portuguese wine was excellent. Parking on site is great - but far from train station.

We enjoyed the food very much - authentic and yet unique too. The service was excellent - we had good conversation with our server. We went on Easter for dinner - it was somewhat empty so though quiet and peaceful the ambviance was a solemn. I'm sure it was hoping during brunch! We will return for sure.

Excellent food
The translation from guest to waiter to kitchen back to guest was an adventure.
A number plates came back different due to misunderstanding
Good news is that it was all excellent and they recognized it and corrected it with a smile

My husband and I came here for valentines dinner and after I had convince my husband the restaurant was a good choice of restaurant because I had been here many times before and booked company events and bday dinners.
Unfortunately, our dining experience was not good at all. We first ordered the seafood tower and we were told that would take about 45 mins to come out which we found odd being that it's a cold dish.
So, we decided not to order it and we ordered clams in garlic sauce which was extremely salty.
As for our entrees my husband ordered steak and requested medium rare, it was overcooked and super dry and I order grilled octopus and that was breaded with tons off olive oil underneath the octopus, all I could taste was the olive oil, we could not finish up our dinner so we decided to ask for the check and leave to another restaurant. We were extremely disappointed, and were not sure if we would come back or recommend this restaurant.

I looked a restaurant close to Newark Airport (only 7 minutes away) for a quick dinner with a friend arriving from a long flight. Found Campino, and it was amazing. We both had fish. Absolutely delish! I will definitely come back should we be in the area.

We LOVE it here!!! We are from another state but when we travel, we typically stay in Newark the night before our flight. We make our reservations for Campino every single time and THAT is how we start vacation! The food, service, cocktails and atmosphere never disappoints. I can’t wait until my next vacation just so I can eat dinner here!

It was quiet on a Sunday night and we enjoyed it IMMENSELY!! I had a little trouble understanding the waiter so we got “Spanish fries” instead of “Spanish rice” but we enjoyed them immensely!! Lol

Went there last Saturday evening, it was the most disappointing dining experience we ever had. Took 40 minutes to get a drink, over two hours to get our meal, only after threatening to leave, of which we saw at least three tables get up and left. Waiter disappeared, my wife, even went to the Bar to get another drink as the waiter never came back.

Ordered apps. The chorizo had more fat than my mother in law. Ordered dinner and after an hour and 10 minutes we had to leave. Our server kept apologizing but not once did a manager come over. Got our check and left - late for an 8:00 show. This evening was a disaster and we will not be going back.

Our meals weren’t served in abundance. Just the right amount of serving. Personally I don’t like to bring left overs home. Sangria was good. The serradura cream was too dense. Will not order that again. Service was pleasant and attentive.

Great place to have an special event, we had a group of eight and dinner plates were served at the same time. Plates were well prepared, the presentation was good.
