You MUST eat the plantain chips! The food was excellent as were the drinks. The wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable and able to help me select a dish that was gluten free. Great atmosphere and amazing food. I can't wait to go back.

I have been a fan of Brasitas in Stamford for years; went east yesterday to Brasitas in Norwalk; GO! A warm, friendly staff. The bartender makes an outstanding Caipirinha; empanada appetizer outstanding as were the camarones ajillo. Spectacular meal, but the dessert- WOW! Tres leches- GET IT! Go for this alone (and I am not a dessert person normally). Buen... More

I've eaten at Brasitas 3 times. The plantain chips are a good start. Something different and tasty. I've enjoyed each meal, having something different every time. We were not rushed at all.

I eat at Brasitas often and I have never had a disappointing meal there. The food is outstanding. They start you off with plantain chips and salsa. It is the best salsa I have ever tasted! My favorites are the crevice and the steak with egg but everything they offer is delicious! I highly recommend it!

My friends wanted to take me out for a birthday dinner and I knew just the right place, Brasitas! I love going to Brasitas in Norwalk. It's a bit more high end than the one in Stamford and more cozy. Ther service is on point, the place is very clean, the music is just at the right volume (no yelling)... More

My husband and I had never heard of this restaurant before. We happened to drive by it and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed! We sat outside since the weather was appropriate for that. I am not a fan of any type of fusion cuisine and most items on the menu, especially the appetizers, were Latin... More

Plantain chips are amazing but don't fill up on those. Many great entrees to choose from and can't go wrong with bistec a caballo or carne Asada. Went with my niece and we had flatbread with shrimp as an appetizer. Still thinking about it and she is already trying to figure out when we can go back and have it... More

So happy we checked trip advisor on this. We were passing through on rt 15. Had an early lunch- excellent service, great food. Loved the plantain chips and salsa. Arroz con pollo was outstanding- i can't believe I ate every last bite. Followed with flan and cafe late- perfect. Highly recommended!
