Charming Restaurant!

Lovely restaurant, located up the hill, creating a lovely view. Food is EXCELLENT and the entire wait staff in the lounge and in the restaurant are great. Highly recommend. It is a bit pricey -but- we felt it was well worth it!!!!!

This is hands down our favorite restaurant to have dinner when my wife and I want a romantic dinner out. The food is superb, service is everything you would expect and if you sit next to the window in the front room you have an extra bonus of a view of the Roanoke Valley. This is a must on anybody's...

Two couples celebrated an excellent dinner. I had Veal Marcella, a meal most restaurants don't carry. It was very good. Others had clams, shrimp and bay scallops. All were graded as excellent. Desert was caramasu, the recommended desert, which was also excellent.. Our server was Darlene who was patient, informative and provided good service. One of our couples had been... 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.

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 in... More

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
