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

If you want to visit Brazil without leaving Miami, go to Boteco. Staff speaking Portuguese, authentic Brazilian food and very friendly atmosphere. Particularly worthwhile is the lunch time when the manager/barman Marco Antonio directs the "show." Delicious caipirinhas, fantastic appetizers (do not forget to order the pasteis), and truly Brazilian fish plate (muqueca) and grilled churrasco (picanha). Food, drinks and... More

Excellent appetizers that will feel you up. Decor is disappointing but the food is not. Service is slow but personnel is really nice. Worth a visit and not too expensive.

We had to escape from a thunderstorm and found shelter in Boteco. We had coffee and deserts, everything was good, the service excellent and the place very charming. Next time, we will have dinner!

If you are looking to listen live Brasilian music and have fun with friends, this place is great. They have different kind of Brasilian bands every night from samba to pop rock. But that ends there. Food and drinks are bad. Stick to a known beer brand, and good luck with food. I haven't tried one dish that was decent.
