Very simple place with frugal facilities but the food and service are one of the best in town. Typical Brazilian tapas are the excellent.

Nice draft with our local "finger food", indeed is not that small these "finger food". On Saturday it is packed due to their feijoada during the lunch time. At night from Wednesday to Friday they are also crowded. Try the caipirinha, the spirit with lime.

What a great place - cold beer, lots of hot hors d'oeuvres, and friendly service. we were a bit challenged as my dinner companion and I do not speak Portuguese, and none of the wait staff spoke English. We found pointing and smiling to be effective, and we enjoyed the open air atmosphere on a pleasant afternoon.

If you're not Brazilian, but want to try our pub food, you must go to Coronel. They have all the deep fried nhami snacks you need, cold beer and good people around. Great for happy hours at the end of a hard day :). And please, try the "coxinha". It's the best one in town

It's a great place to nosh on food and drink beer or spirits. Everytime I'm in town, I make it a point to go there one night. Take a local with you if you don't... More

With no doubts this place is one of the best places to do a happy hour with your friends after work, or to drink something before going to a dance club on a Friday night or even a really good place to have a beer on a Sunday in the afternoon. Their Chopp is amazing and their food is delicious.... More

Went here several times for business diner, and depending on the day (Wednesday to Sunday) the bar is always packed and there is a great atmosphere. The cocktails are great and you can eat a la carte, or the come by your table serving all kinds of fried stuff, which you can take or leave. Highly recommended.
