“Great place if you are up for some Brazilian!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Family of three with two old friends without reservations (can't make them anyway) on a Tuesday night. Although busy for a Wednesday and a bit put off by hustle and bustle of the entrance we waited only ten minutes before being seated. HUGE menu. Although arguably too large there should be something for everyone ranging from Pizza and Lasagna to Croquettes and Fried Plantains. Simple Beer and Wine list with pretty good options. Service was standard California with friendly and attentive servers ready to "keep things moving along". Excepting the entrance (which feels like coming in the Kitchen) the atmosphere is nicely decorated lending a mellow and relaxed feeling. The absolute highlights are their grilled items, specifically the Coulotte Steak "Picanha". Combined with the sides of Yuca flower and the black beans make a fantastic meal. We will be back.

“An inexpensive, unpretentious restaurant with good food in Hollywood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Great food, reasonable prices (most dishes $10 to $15), medium large portions, extensive menu with something for everyone. What more could you ask for? Was able to get a table immediately on a Friday night without reservations. The fried plantains were delicious, as were our mains -- tenderloin in a Madeira mushroom sauce, and a chicken skewer. My only complaint is that there are no substitutions -- each main dish comes with a fixed side dish, and you can't substitute one for another (except for the skewers, which offer some choices). Not sure why, but a minor quibble since at these prices you can always buy an additional side and ignore the one you don't want.

“Can never go wrong!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

When I leave town it's not too long before I go into Bossa Nova withdrawal. Hardy, flavorful and healthy. You leave feeling satiated but not disgusting. Favorites are the classic plates with fried plantains, or clean aliolio pasta with added chicken and tomato.

“Great FOOD”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

The food is great. Brazilian cuisine with many simpler, and veggie options as well. Great for dinner or a quick bite, the service is pretty good too. Plus they deliver!

I love this place, Ive ended up eating here almost every night, the portions are huge, the pizza is fabulous, and the staff couldn't be more charming. Highly recommended!
