A piece of Brazil in Miami

Was looking for a typical Brazilian spot, and this one exceeded my expectations. Excellent food, excellent music and outstanding service!

From the outside Boteco looks like a little hole in the wall but this place is HUGE; but with a friendly beachy-cabana home feel to it. Great spot for groups because they have plenty of seating for large groups. They have a great Happy Hour with Caipirinha at $4 each! My favorite is the Passion Fruit Caipirinha, which are tasty...

This is my second time at Boteco on 916 NE 79th street. DO NOT go to the one called Boteco Copacabana in south beach. It's not the same . It's worth the 25 dollar cab ride for a great meal. Start with the famous cheese balls, followed by the garlic shrimp as an appetizer enough for two. Then The mothers... 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....

In specific to entertainment or live music in this case.They had abandoned their calendar on their website, claimed that has done remodeling and all I noticed is the stage removed and added a piano,no microphone for music and singers,last night it was like a crying CATS samba Trio Horrible,and...

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.
