For a little taste of Portugal in Queens, New York, come dine at Mateus’. Hop up to the bar for a specialty cocktail or glass of select wine, or enjoy a relaxing sit-down meal in our cheerfully decorated dining room. Try our signature dish, seafood paelha, or any of our other authentic Portuguese recipes. Seafood is our specialty, but our customers also rave about our broiled steaks and chops, rice and beans, vegetarian entrees, soups, salads and homemade desserts.
Located just a few blocks west of the Cross Island Parkway, our Jamaica Avenue restaurant is an extension of Jericho Turnpike’s famous “Restaurant Row” in Floral Park.
Established in 1991 by the Chaves family, owner/chef Ilidio, with over 30 years experience, and his daughters Sofia, Jessie & Melessa are committed to serving authentic Portuguese recipes, passed down from generation to generation, with skill and gracious hospitality.
