We ate here for my BD and had a great meal from drinks on through to dessert. The calamari was the best we have had anywhere in years. The potato soup with collards was delicious and the main course, their signature Moqueca was splendid. I had it with shrimp, my husband had it with sea bass; we would definitely order... More

I had read the great reviews and looked forward to a wonderful dinner. Not so much. We went on a Sunday evening, not crowded at all. Got a scenic view of a wall. We ordered the lobster & shrimp moqueca for two ($74) and a side dish to share. The moqueca came and it was fine - nothing special, but... More

Great authentic recipes from Brazil cooked in a family owned and operated restaurant. Great Palm Salad for vegetarians and vegetarian Bobos! Entertainment on many weekends to really get the party started! Great for celebrations!

I've visited this place a few times and the food and service are excellent but their prices are a bit steep.

I had the seafood... More

Short and sweet... We had a great experience! Excellent food and wonderful service. We ordered feijaodi (made only on Sundays) and moqueca fish. Delicious!

We have dined here 3 times but will not return. The first time was on a New Year's Eve and the atmosphere was very celebratory with Brazilian dancers and music. The food was average but the service was friendly and prompt. We returned for a second visit thinking the food would improve without all the hoopla of a holiday but,... More

My wife and I went for a different restaurant experience. I had the specialty of the house Moqueca with sea bass and shrimp a special of the night. The reviews said the pot it is served in holds the heat. I can say that it was still boiling ten minutes after it was brought to the table. The tomato mixture... More

We to dinner with friends just to avoid the usual places. Nice surprise. Food is served in mosqueca clay pots which keeps the food hot and makes a nice presentation. My wife and I shared family size seafood combination filled with cod, octopus, shrimp, calamari and more. Awesome and flavourful sauce. Great Margarita. Great service and all tables have view...
