“A gem in a sea of mediocity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Brasitas in a strip mall on a busy road with lots of office buildings and shops. There's quite a few restaurants along that stretch of road bt few are any good. Brasitas stands out with really wonderful Caribbean style food. Their salsa is wonderful and they also have good tortilla chips - too bad they stopped serving their friend plantain chips for free - now they cost $4 to get them instead of regular chips. The menu has lots of choices and the dishes are all tasty and good portions and the price is quite reasonable. Definitely worth a visit.

“Great food and fun atmosphere albeit a bit loud”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

You pretty much can't go wrong with any of the drinks or the food. It's a fun, cozy place but if you are expecting to "catch up" with an old friend or want a romantic dinner, this wouldn't be the right place for you. Great place for a GNO though!!

“Excellent Food Tucked into shopping center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Brasitas is a wonderful little restaurant tucked into a strip shopping mall across from an office park - we were wonderfully surprised. Nice atmosphere. We had paella and a fish stew and both were perfectly prepared, with the spices balanced and not overwhelming the seafood. The service was average - we would have liked more attention but it was a busy night. Worth the trip if you like great seafood and beef! Nice side room for special occasions or a big group

“Great Columbian Restuarant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

I went here for a business dinner yesterday and had a great meal. The staff was excellent and they didn't try and rush us out the door.

I had the pork chop that was one of the best I have ever had.

You can't go wrong here, if you are in Norwalk, CT you need to stop by here.

“Interesting menu and delicious food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

We were heading home to NH and Trip Advisor helped us find this tasty gem for lunch. Entrees were $12-17 and creatively plated and delicious.
