We enjoyed our visit

We chose this restaurant based on the 2014 Roanoke "best of" awards. It was a nice place and I would recommend it to others. We made reservations for 8 p.m., got there early, and waited about 10 minutes. We sat in one of the back rooms, but that was okay because it was a rainy night. If you're here... read more

Access is difficult during night. Need good sign on 419. Place is nice. Good view. Clean place. Food quality is not so different than other restaurant on neighborhood . Price is very high for normal food. Waitress is reasonable .

I ordered the special, Baramundi with crabmeat imperial. Barumumdi tasted similar to Tilapia, but usually I like it better. I detected a strong muddy taste- not spoiled, but not a "clean " taste either. The crabmeat imperial was heavy on the crumbs and sauce, but had a nice flavor overall. I ordered mine with caper sauce. It was very good-... More

First of all if you're using GPS this place is hard to find. Our GPS had us in the middle of Electric Rd saying "you've reached your destination"....Carlos Brazilian is up on top of the hill, near the KFC and across from the Shopping Center with Food Lion....so just look up. There's a driveway and a very small sign leading... More

Fantastic view of the city and the valley. My steak was cooked to perfection and the accompanying vegetables and potatoes were very good. Service was above par. The Flan is an excellent choice for desert.

I've been here many times and always enjoy it, but I brought along a colleague last tiime and he loved it. He, like I, enjoy all types of cuisine but he is still talking about the Moqueca Mineira. Said he was coming back to Roanoke just for this dish. I got the filet special and it rivaled almost any steakhouse... More

We had lunch here and was completely blown away. The views from the dining room are stunning and the food was excellent. Prices were extremely reasonable for lunch. I would highly recommend this place to my friends.

We enjoyed a lovely sunset over the mountains in Roanoke, VA, while dining on some fabulous food! The service was attentive but not intrusive. We wonder why we waited so long to go there!!

This is a favorite place of ours. We eat there as often as we can find time together. My wife and I have always had wonderful meals each and everytime we have been there. Everything is great! The special homemade hot sauce is out of this world. Word to the wise, a little goes a long way!
