Wow, where to start. On my last trip to NYC, I was introduced to this chic looking boutique restaurant in Astoria. I didn't know what to expect, usually, the Brazilian restaurants I've visited in the past normally specialize in different types of meats. However, at Malagueta there are many food options. I had Moqueca De Camarão, which is Shrimp Stew,... More

The owner/chef is very friendly and is very proud to showcase his heritage through food. You can taste quality, pride and joy in every bite. Be careful with their cocktails are strong (actually, their glasses are too small for the amount of alcohol they pour into it). You must try their salpicao salad.

Charming setting with beautiful tapes quietly playing in the background. Make sure that you order one of their Passion Flower Capinheiro drinks---not sure that my spelling is correct. I loved my appetizer--sausage with Yucca. The others loved their mussels and we ordered sides of beans. There is a choice of many entrees including vegetarian. On Saturdays, they have the famous...

This is an unpretentious place but with real Brazilian food and staff, the food is exactly as it should be and the menu is as complete as you could wish. Personnel is great and prices are very reasonable. I don't usually give excellent ratings and there are better restaurants but the rating reflects the combination of great value, genuine food...

We have eaten here several times. Malagueta is an upscale Brazilian restaurant in Astoria, not far from Queens Plaza, and only two blocks from the 36th Avenue Station of the N train. This is a sit down restaurant with tablecloths, napkins, and everything else that screams "pricey", yet for our party of four, with only one of us having a... More

You have to eat at this Brazilian Restaurant - corner of 36th Av and 28th St. Every dish is amazing. Atmosphere and hospitality add to the experience.

My wife loves things Brazilian, so on a short trip to New York, found this little restaurant in Astoria. The bacallao appetizer was crispy on the outside and melt-in-your-mouth soft on the inside. The sirloin was well made and my wife loved the farango malgueta chicken. For desset we had a corn pudding that was sweet and tasty. And I... More

I recently had dinner at Malagueta for the first time with my family. We all really enjoyed the evening. It's a small restaurant with great service and an interesting menu. Two of us chose a chicken dish and two of us chose pork. Everyone was pleased with the taste and presentation. Other items that we saw coming out of the... More
