“Mom's First Brazilian Steakhouse Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

I took my mother and sister to Key West were we ran into Braza Lena one night. What was funny was the power had just went out and we decided to hangout and eat some food from the salad bar and had drinks. Due to the power outage, the manager took care of us, and the staff was more then gracious for our visit. The following day we went back for the meat selection. With the power back on, we started with a wide selection of meat with more drinks. All of the meat selections were very flavorful, fresh, hot, and juicy. Mom had a hard time with a few of the meats, due to the way they were cooked, but she loved the place. Since we had tried half of the deserts the first night, we had to try the other half and they were all very well. Of all the tables in the place, what was funny was they placed us in the same table both nights.

“A gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

My daughter had been wanting to try this restaurant for ages and it didn't disappoint. We went for Happy Hour and had the special burger which is made up of three meats and was delicious. To accompany we had strawberry mohitos, which again were delicious. The Happy Hour is for the bar area only, the restaurant being a Braziian steakhouse. It was nicely air conditioned in the muggy heat and great value for money.

“Unique experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

If you never been to a Brazilian Steakhouse and are a carnivore you're in for a treat! Don't be tempted to fill up on the salad bar because the waiters keep coming around with about 15 different types of meat served hot off the skewer. If you are a local sign up for the mailing list and you get a free dinner for 1 in your birthday month. This is the place I chose for my 50th bday a few months ago, so that shows you how I feel. It's excellent, just not 5 star worthy because of the self serve salad bar. I'll be back!

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Locally owned Brazilian Steakhouse. Same principal & price as a "Texas de Brazil." We really enjoyed the food, service & atmosphere. Opens at 5 pm, 7 days a week. I ordered the salad bar which has meats, soups, salad and delicious side dishes!! My husband had the meat service. He tried them all. Lamb was his favorite! 18% tip included on all checks to be split between all servers since so many serve a table. We did not mind the tip being included as it simplified checkout. One of the best meals we had while in Key West!

“Amazing gem hidden right off Duval”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

All I can say is wow. So much better than Texas de Brazil. Food is excellent and great value. They started a happy hour with drink specials with filet mignon. I would recomend to anyone and will certainly be back. First 5 I have ever given to a restaurant!
