Welcome to our restaurant..

Caravela’s owner, Carlos Moreira, is dedicated to quality and making sure that your dining experience at Caravela Restaurant is a memorable one and that all dishes are made from the very best ingredients available.

As some of the earliest European explorersintheir Caravelas, Portuguese expeditions to lands such as India, China, Japan, North Africa and Brazil have influenced and shaped the world’s cuisine as we know it today. With a balance of Mediterranean and exotic flavors, Portuguese food delivers a unique and tasty dining experience.

Located in the Portuguese Cultural Center,  Caravela is a Portuguese restaurant representing authentic cuisine at its very best. Simple but elegant food is perfectly complemented by the restaurant’s smart casual environment. We serve fresh fish and seafood alongside a selection of salted cod and meat dishes. Our key to success is our modern approach to old classics and using the best ingredients available seasonally and paired with some of the best Portuguese wines.

Everything is great. Ate here two nights in a row. We focused on the fish which was consistently awesome. The rice pudding is also delicious. Great wine selections. Five stars all day long.​
