“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We ate here several times, on our own and with groups. The food was always excellent, they had English menus, but no waiters who could communicate in English, so one needs a little Portugese. The menu was quite varied with excellent seafood, and had enough variety to satisfy vegetarian diners. Best wine list we encountered in Brazil and Argentine. They automatically serve a variety of appetizers that are excellent, but, if planning to have a menu appetizer, decline them. As in all Brazilian restaurants, portions are huge so select with caution.

“Nice quiet restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

I had dinner at this restaurant and I could appreciate how quiet it was (but to tell the whole story, it was almost empty). Good service, good food, but nothing that make Alcaparra to stand out.

“Fantastic food, even better service and nice atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

The Alcaparra recently celebrated their 20th anniversary and they continue to improve all of the time. Another nice thing is that they are totally open to suggestions and criticism to correct any small errors that might occur (but I have yet to see them!).
Maitre d'Hotel Raimundo Ferreira is a master of organization, dedication and never ceases to ask frequent customers for their suggestions or even ideas for new dishes to add to the menu.
