Good margaritas and ceviche.

I've been to the one in Norwalk and Stamford, CT and they are both good, authentic restaurants. The Stamford location has an outside bar.

Sat outside on the patio for a delicious dinner! The plantains and salsa were a great way to start the meal. A nice change from chips and salsa. My server steered me to the short ribs, and they were amazing! 2 large, fork tender pieces of beef over a risotto style rice with peas and zucchini in a delicious sauce!... More

You could easily drive by this place and never give it a second thought, but in spite of its size and outward appearance, this place is terrific! Very different menu. ..very well prepared. A little pricey, but good. Service can be sketchy, but overall, very worth the trip.

Come for the joy of it. The warm, friendly decor is matched by the smiles of the staff. The menu is a mixture of nouvelle latino cuisine. For starters, the plantain chips and guacamole is a good start as is the black bean soup. I'm fond of the churrasco de cerdo al mojo as a main dish. Sit back, relax... More

Very chic yet not too expensive. Great place for a date. Flank steak and seafood stew were awesome. Cerviche a little fishy but still good. Highly recommend!

Located about a half-mile off Exit 9 on I-95, this small Brazilian fusion restaurant offers truly outstanding food. While it often sounds simple, the combination of flavors is amazing. The only drawback is it's very small and always crowded. Parking too can be a problem. But once you taste the food, you'll understand why it's so hard to get into.... More

Don't let the outside look of this place turn you away, it's one of the best latino restaurants in CT. I've been there numerous times, the food is always excellent, and the service and ambiance terrific. I've had business dinners there, as well as lunch/dinner with friends, it's always great. Ceviches are very good, and don't miss the skirt steak.... More

We love this restaurant despite not living in Stamford. The atmosphere is nothing you would ever expect based upon the outside look of the building or the location in general~but you MUST GO! It is a bit expensive but worth every penny. The food is a taste sensation and the service is outstanding..also the presentation of the food is a... More

A group of 10 of us went here for a business dinner. The food and wines we had were amazing. Lots of choices for everyone. The space was a little tight but it just made the experience intimate. The wait staff was very nice and accommodating.
