A friendly place, serving some really interesting dishes

This place is buried in a small strip shopping center, About a quarter mile north of the Merritt Parkway. The name is a bit confusing. Is it Brazilian food? The outside looks tropical. And on nicer days, you can actually sit outside. But on this particular Saturday night it was a bit chilly... read more

This place is the most underrated gem I have ever encountered. The food is AMAZINNGGGG!!!! and the drinks are freshly made.. I make it a habit to pop by as often as possible. With the little space that they have, even outside, it is still top notch. Perfect for happy hour, date night, family, business, friends.. I have been by... More

In town for one night, stopped in and sat at the bar. Friendly atttentive service and the best carne asada I have ever had! They serve fresh banana chips and salsa - a great alternative to tortilla chips. Great atmosphere.

Service is good. Menu selection is delicious and unique. For example there's a Caribbean version of Jambalaya that's nicely done.

Located in a lively little strip mall near the awesome fitness-themed Even Hotel, this is a spicy and savory alternative when you are tired of the healthier choices at the hotel. Not that it is unhealthy by any means, just not pure organic faire. The steak is flavorful and cooked to specification. Other meats are fine. The vegetables are really... More

Ate here during a business trip with 8 people. Service was very good and we didn't have to wait long for anything. I had the sweetcorn, cheese and chicken starter (sorry can't remember what it was called) It was good but nothing special. It was quite dry and the chicken almost tasted like tuna. However, the steak I had for... More

We've been going to both Brasita's Restaurants in Norwalk and Stamford for many years. The food is fabulous - we've never gotten anything there that we didn't love! Plantain chips and salsa are great as are the black bean soup, salmon, shrimp, port and steak. The food is interestingly presented and service is very good. I love their Sangria too.... More

I simply loved this place when I lived in Norwalk. I am a foodie and this restaurant always did it for me. A co-worker recommended it and although it does't look special from the outside I was very surprised at the food. It was perfectly cooked, beautifully presented, and always interesting to the palate. Great service, too. They did meat... More
