“A different Brazillian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

The food was absolutely delicious. I highly recommend either the salmon dish or one of the chicken dishes. Service was great. Very friendly staff. Decent wine list but very good Sangria.

“Little version of Brazilian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

The reviews for this were good, which helped us decide on where to go with our large group. I travel to Brazil regularly and this is really more like the traditional Brazilian restaurant that you would see. Most people are just familiar with the BBQ, which is great, but this is another thing everyone should try.

“Comfort food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

The special of the day was delicious--chicken in a feta cheese sauce with garlic mashed potatoes and grilled vegetables. The wine selections were meager, but the service and restaurant ambience were excellent.

“Excellent Food, authentic and reasonably priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2011

I go there with my Brazilian friends for lunch. The service is friendly and the food delicious! I agree with the other reviewer, the mussels are in a garlic tomato sauce and they are so tasty!

“Love it, Love it, Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2011

Don't be fooled by the nondescript exterior! This restaurant is not only attractive inside, but serves some of the finest food you'll ever eat. My wife had the chicken and loved it and I had the picana with rice, beans and ferofa and cleaned the plate. Having visited Brazil a few times, this place brought me back. If I lived nearby I'm sure this would become a regular place for us.
