“Surpringly good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

We came here only because of a Groupon. We are glad we did as we had a fantastic meal.

The decor is nice and the restaurant was quite comfortable. There were a number of Brito pictures, figurines, and even luggage. Service was friendly and prompt. They allowed us to use 2 Groupons at the same table because they weren't busy so kudos to them for that. 4 of us ate, and we tried the yucca with beef and one with shrimp appetizer. Both were great, but I'd go with the shrimp over the beef if you had to try one. 3 of us got the filet mignon entree and 1 got a ribeye. The meat was delicious and cooked as we asked. It was moist and the garlic on top added a nice flavor. The portions were definitely adequate, and most people couldn't find their meals. I would recommend this place for sure.

“Outside average looking, Inside is a cool little set-up, service and food was great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

My girlfriend and I came to this place because she had found a Groupon deal prior to our arrival in Orlando on a trip. She had purchased this a week before hand, I made reservations and we decided to come here for dinner on May 17th. Upon arriving, you look at this restaurant from the outside and don't think much of it, it's in a plaza and doesn't strike you as something that would be that great, just a quick, simple meal but wow, their steak and appetizers were fantastic!

We had an appetizer which was delicious, our mains were great as well and the drinks were good. Our server was very friendly and she was happy, you could tell she enjoyed her job and likes working here. It wasn't that busy inside so reservations weren't required but it had a steady flow and a consistent crowd, just not super busy.

I would recommend this place to anyone and couple that is looking to spend about 50-70 bucks for a good dinner. Don't let the outside fool you, we weren't disappeared, hopefully you won't be either.

“Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Today my family went to Boteco for a late lunch. They have a lunch special that is ok to try. Service was good, the server was very friendly,but did not speak Portuguese which is very odd because it is a Brazilian restaurant. This detail did not affect us because we speak English, but for the tourists in the area would be an issue. Good food!

“Go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Do not eat at shopping food court! Go lunch at Brazil! Watch Jornal Hoje and eat rice and beans. You sure miss real food after some days at Orlando. They also have pão de queijo, guaraná e Bhrama.
