This is really a true authentic Brazilian restaurant With a variety of foods to choose from , both American style and Brazilian. I was not particular pleased with the buffet style of service as I do not like my food exposed. I assume weighting your food is truly how they calculate the prices in their country; it's not one of... More

Pantanal is the best Brazilian food in Bridgeport hands down. Their meat is the main reason I go. Brisket, bacon wrapped chicken and of course steak. Lots of Brazilian goodies too!

I Think their yellow rice is really far above other places and all the meats are grilled perfectly. You buy by the pound so your able to... More

Love love love this place. The churrasco (grilled meat) is excellent - brisket, steak, pork, chicken. And the fried bananas are a must. But what I really like is the buffet style, with cold and hot selections. And they are open late. It's fast, but it's not fast food. For $10-12 per person you can eat like a king. Can... More

From the moment you park, the smell hits you! This place is one that you will go to again and again. Fresh salad buffet, deliciously seasoned meats, sides, rice, beans - need I say more? If you haven't tried this place, go! Eat in or take out, you will also find incredible desserts and treats. Friendly staff, too! The Adventures... More

Went to Patanal on a Bridgeport culinary expedition with my brother. Excellent food and beer at incredible prices. Limited menu of succulent rotisseried meats and flavorful sides. Frequented by many locals who know the best place to go. Many carry out, but we ate in. Cafeteria style, very casual. Easy place with kids. Wish I lived closer so I could... More
