Coco Bambu is an excellent restaurant in an amazing surrounding in southern Brasília. The menu is ample and offers great Brazilian dishes, particularly seafood. We had grilled fish in an amazing mango-ginger sauce with nuts: simply great, perfectly cooked and balanced. Side dishes were simple but great, no complaints. Drinks include great juices, sodas, wine and beer - everything you... More

A very big saloon for couples, friends and families. The size of the regular specities ( shrimp, lobster, ...) serves 3 or 4 or 5 people! Even the steaks can serve 2 or more people. The price cost-benefit is good and the staff very polite and fast! Recommend for everyone!

The restaurant is pretty and has a nice view, that's for sure! The appetizers are excellent! But the shrimp main dishes are not that good! The size of the dishes has markedly decreased - so as the size os the shrimps themselves. Besides that the dishes are too creamy (and it hides the flavour of the ingredients). But I won't... More

This is my favourite restaurant in Brasilia. The service is great and the menu choices are just wonderful. My favourite is the barbecue ribs. The atmosphere and view are great too. It's my "go to" restaurant whenever I get visitors. The pricing for dishes is good, too. Be prepared to wait for minimum 20-30 mins to be seated if you... More

You have a great variety of dishes, specially shrimps. Ask for 2 people! The prices are very reazonables. It's a very big place, but always full! You better get early, mainly if you are in a big party. The balcony is quite hot at lunch time, but has a nice Lake Paranoá view.

My guy and I went here for a delicious dinner the day we arrived in Brasilia. We shared an appetizer of white fish with a zesty aioli sauce followed by Shrimp Thermador. It was served with rice. The portion was huge, with not only enough for 2, but also left overs to take back to the hotel! We had the... More

One of my favorites restaurants in Brasilia. I love the view, environment and food. I do not recall which dish I ordered, but it has shrimp inside. It was delicious!

Food is good, but all 'different' types of sauces tend to have the same base. No creativity; yet, quite good. Prices are reasonable. The restaurant attracts large number of residents specially on Sundays and weekends. It is recommended to arrive Sunday before noon to get a table. On weekends I have already waited over 2 hours, during which time you... More

Great place for lunch! Sit outside. Clear view of the lake. Menu is in English and Portuguese. Portions are for two or three people- and the sea food dishes are amazing. If you are visiting Brasilia, it's a definite must!
