The place is great for after work drinks. But also, amazing to meet your friends for a night drinking. The draft beer is nice and your glass will never be empty. :-) food is a specialty. Reserve some room for the "pastel", you will never forget that. Doesn't matter the season, you will always find the place full of people.

Foreigners, don't miss the "pastel". It is a brazilian specialty and this one is among the best of all. Besides, there is a lot more: coxinha, bolinho caipira (see the pics on Google).

Glad we chose Coronel. There was an English menu, the staff didn't really master the language but they tried their best! Compliments! We skipped the menu and enjoyed the local snacks that... More

Coronel is known for its unrivaled service. It is impossible to be caught with your pint empty. Do not forget to try the Pastels (shrimp, jerk beef with cream cheese or palm heart) with a little bit of Tabasco. You can be served just by standing on the sidewalk or you can sit somewhere inside if you arrive early in... More

It is not too easy to find a place to parking your vehicle until 18:00h, but after that is not too dificult and that is the happy hour beggining. Tough is getting home on... More

Authentic "comida de boteco" style. So many good options of bar food that you will have to save space to taste all. The chopp os always good and the crew that works there is just the best. That's the place to go for authentic bar food in Brazil.
