So when you first see this restaurant your thinking to yourself this might not turn out so good. But then I got to looking and thinking this looks like many small family run hole in the walls you see in more tropical areas rather than a big city. So why not check it out further?

Having enjoyed wonderful Brazilian food on vacation to the country, it's such a pleasant surprise not to have to go far to enjoy the food again. Located in the University district, this simple home cooking restaurant provides a welcome piece of Brazil in the Pacific Northwest. They have all the popular dishes and a nice selection of protein: chicken, beef... More

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.
