The food was good, but I was expecting more Brazilian food. Coming from Miami with so many Brazilian restaurants, even though the food was good, it was not my favorite.

We were told to try this place by our VRBO hosts they live a block away and frequent the place. Really good experience. Wonderful food. We had a little of everything, steak, pasta, pulled pork and a salad. Each plate was excellent. Try it you will like it.

The food was delicious, but the service left a little to be desired. We still had a great time with our friends. If you've never had Brazilian food, the pão de queijo is a must and order guarana to drink.

The right amount of spiciness to tickle the taste buds. My meal was juicy, hot and flavorful. Nice friendly atmosphere. Servers were extra nice and made accommodating our party a plus. Payment methods were simplified for our large party. It was a tight fit but worked out well for us. Wait time was not as long as we imagined or... More

Going to the Bowl and want a great dinner beforehand? Bossa Nova. The pizza and salad were both terrific, with prompt and attentive service. We walked from here to The Bowl for the concert, to work off the great food.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
