Best Brazilian Food Around!

Our family of 12 loved this Restaurant. We wanted Brazilian cuisine and were not disappointed! They had space for us inside the air conditioned inner area. Fresh cooked, authentic selections and friendly service! Was not busy yet, so we were served in timely fashion for such a large group!

The food was all right. Overpriced but tasted ok. The service was not good at all. They were somehow lost... They did not have half the items on the dessert menu and the drinks we all right.

My partner and I made reservation for dinner here. The place was very busy, it took 15 minutes for us to be seated because the waiters seem a little disorganized. We ordered caipirinhas, a Brazilian cocktail. It was excellent and so was the appetizer made up of chicken croquettes with a spicy, tangy sauce on the side. These came fairly... More

We had reservations and arrived on time. The staffing appeared limited and we had to wait at least 10 minutes to see our waitress; we let her know that we had a deadline as we had an event to attend in a couple of hours. 90 minutes after being seated we were still waiting for our entrees. The waitress avoided... More

Enjoyed a delicious meal at this restaurant with friends and family. Ordered a stew called Feijoada, the national dish of Brazil and a Caipirinha which was a fermented sugar cane drink with lime which is the national drink. The stew was rich and had a slightly exotic taste with spices I couldn't identify and the drink was like a sweet... More

I've been going to this restaurant when in Seattle for over 10 years. The owners come from Bahía state in Brazil and make absolutely perfect, authentic food from that region - as good or better than anything I've had when visiting Brazil. Antonio, the owner is one of the nicest people you could possibly hope to meet and makes you... More

I was pleasantly surprized and thouroughly enjoyed my meal.I ordered the traditional stew for 2 but shared it. We started with a passionfruit custard/pudding. We had no leftovers! Great menu! I look forward to returning and trying a few more things off the menu.

This is an unobtrusive little restaurant on the upper Ave in the U District that you might overlook but it's definitely worth eating there. The owners are Brazilian, from Salvador, and very gracious. My knowledge of Brazilian cuisine is limited but having been to Salvador the food here sure tasted authentic to me. It's delicious and I bet they are... More

Took our Brazilian host student for his birthday for a taste of home. He enjoyed it and they sang happy birthday. My husband is picky and he loved it. They were busy but we seemed to experience slower attention than others. Good if you are wanting to try something different. Give yourself time. Not a big place and some of... More
