Love this Brazilian spot!

I have been here a few times with my spouse and it was great place for lunch, caipirinhas, and a good time. We came on Sundays and knew the service, food, and cocktails were going to be great. You actually feel like you in Brazil with the atmosphere and theme. The Picanha is juicy and tastey alone... read more

This stuff was amazing. Gluten free bread naturally with tapioca flour was a favorite for us all. My husband and I shared the grilled steak and white rice as well as the sausage. Everything was great. We ate there twice during our 3 night stay in the Miami area. Very loud at night but still ok for kids.

This place was recommended by a local Brazilian that lives in the area. We are Brazilians too and were looking for a less Americanized/touristy place. The food is okay, huge portions and they don't really tell you that. You could easily share most of the plates. The taste is good, meat is succulent and tender, yucca is great, soft, crispy....

The place is lovely, it is divided in two areas, we sat in the area where the music was being played, and we were unable to have a conversation (our choice to stay there). The food was OK. but certainly nothing to shout about. It is Brazilian cafe style food.

That place is something else. Though the atmosphere is nice, service is horrible. My husband and I had to wait about 15 minutes for our drinks. 1 bottled beer, one Caipirinha. We received the wrong cocktail. Further, we ordered an appetizer and 2 entrées. They totally forgot about the appetizer and only brought our entrees. We said fine, then let's... More

Bad service but good entertainment on the weekends . Feel good food. Lots of singing and good beer. Good place for laid back chill.

This place is great! It's different than a lot of the more touristy churrascaria places that have popped all over the U.S. We went on a Saturday and enjoyed their Feijoada special. It was all delicious! Also enjoyed a pitcher of caipiroskas and pao de quejo. Yum! We'll be back.

While definitely off the tourist path, this place offers great food and entertainment on some nights (understand samba dancing). They have great specials - feijoada on Saturdays, and grilled chicken Sundays!

Laid back bar with good food; extensive patios although it's on a busy causeway access road (79th Street). Went with a friend who lives in the neighborhood and goes there often. Had an amazing Brazilian mahi mahi dish with onions and peppers in a cream sauce, similar to vodka sauce more more savory. We chose to eat it with their... More
