Description: What if Portsmouth had a fling with a Latin lover? What if mojo filled the streets, steaming with the heat of Cuban, Spanish and, Latin music. What if you could drink a caipirinha on a Tuesday night? Or salsa with someone you'd never met? Welcome to Brazo where the flavors of Latin and South America are completely at home in northern reaches. Its everything an exotic journey should be right in downtown Portsmouth. Viva Brazo!

My wife called to seek reservations during restaurant week in Portsmouth. We were coming from out of state, and only know the area a little, so had to call a few places to get a feel for what to expect. Luna answered the call and was so inviting, bubbly, sweet and helpful, that we said "have to go there". We... More

I usually trust the recommendation on trip advisor so I am not sure why our experience wasn't great. The main issue was that we waited way too long for the food. The tuna and duck were great, the steak was ok but cold, probably because of the extra wait time. Sorry to say this, but yesterday we were at Wellington... More

Brazo continues to be one our our favorites. Visited last night. The drinks were delicious,the appetizers and dinners were just perfect. Best part of the evening was our waiter, Ryan. Ryan is friendly,very knowledgable and makes your dinner a special occasion every time you visit. Best service we have ever experienced.

This restaurant offered some unique dishes there were some of the best food I had. For appetizers, we had tapas that were all different with unique toppings. One was artichoke heart tempura, another was pork belly and the other 3 were also very delicious. For dinner, I highly recommend the duck dish. It was one of the best prepared ducks... More

My wife and I dined at Brazo during our recent stay in Portsmouth based on the overwhelmingly good trip adviser reviews. Let me begin by saying we were not disappointed! This gem of a restaurant is wonderful in every way...from the romantic atmosphere to the impeccable service we enjoyed every minute of our stay! Best of all, of course, is... More

We have a new favorite restaurant in Portsmouth. We started with watermelon martinis and lime cilantro martinis that were so fresh tasting and delicious along with the fish taco appetizer that was amazing and plentiful. Our waiter Ryan who took the best care of us, was so on top of it and fun was happy to let us get different... More

Both the caparinha and the cucumber-cilantro martini were great, and the food was fantastic. Stuffed ancho pepper with quinoa was amazing, and the hanger steak was excellent.

We recently visited Portsmouth and happened upon this restaurant. The food, service, and atmosphere were fantastic. We were so glad we stopped. The food was cooked perfectly and very flavorful. We would definitely go back.

We selected this restaurant from Trip Advisor ranked list of Portsmouth restaurants (and then looking at the menu of the ones that sounded best) and we are glad we did. Very good food -- my salmon was delicious and a generous portion. I would definitely go back the next time I am in Portsmouth.
