We found this place in the "Entertaiment Book" and decided to try something new. There was a mix up with the coupon- but I will get to that later. Antonio's is a pretty small place and it took roughly 30 minutes to get a table for two, but it was well worth the wait. There were homemade french fries (which were delicious and like potato chips) to snack on which was a nice touch. Once we sat down the food was amazing. We started with a salad which was fresh and tasty. Most of the tables ordered the "Authentic Frango Churrasco" which was a BBQ chicken served family style. It looked delicious but I am a seafood king of gal.
I ordered the "paella marinera" which was incredible. It had fresh clams, mussels, shrimp, squid, scallops and lobster- everything tasted fresh and nothing was gritty or rubbery. Easily one of the best seafood dishes I have ever eaten. My husband got the "Espetadas Mixtas" which was a mixed shish kabob of pork, beef and sausage. It came Churrasqueria style and everything was very flavorful and soft. It came with a side of french fries (chips) and rice. We both enjoyed what we got (and what each other got) and are already discussing who to bring back and what to share next time.
We didn't bring our 3 year old with us, but will next time. It is a very family friendly place. The only problem which they sort of fixed was with the Entertainment card. We called before we went and asked if they accepted the card which they said yes. We got there and ate and went to give them the card at the end and were told they did not accept it. The waiter went and spoke to the owner and came back and said they would accept it. The discount was supposed to be for $15 but they only took off 7.50. We could have made a fuss but enjoyed the meal and the place so we decided to let it go. We will go back and recommend Antonio's to anyone, just sorry about the Entertainment card mix up. Antonio's still gets all 5 stars though.
