Horrible horrible service (but good 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... read 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!

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, but the STROGONOFF... More

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.
