Food is delicious!!!! All the food choices we ordered were terrific. The mojitos are great! We highly recommend. The restaurant is small and parking is tough. Best to valet and make a reservation.

We love the laid back atmosphere, great quality food, friendly staff, affordable prices! The chips and salsa are addicting. We have yet to be disappointed.

This cozy restaurant is inspired in Cartagena-Colombia but don't get my wrong, the food is a real Latin fusion mix of flavors and I assumed chef's experience. Wonderfully presented, and with amazing deep flavors this place is worth to check.

Due to the size- a bit on the small size get there early so you don't have to wait. Or you can enjoy the bar atmosphere while you are waiting. The staff always has a smile on their face as they are happy you are here. It's been in Stamford for quite awhile, sometimes I take it for granted as... More

Brasitas features South American cuisine that is perfection. The fish dishes are exceptional but if fish isn't your thing, everything else is equally fabulous. We've never had a bad (or even disappointing) meal there. The wait staff is lovely. In Stamford, in the summer, the bar wall opens to a deck with bar stools. Diners can also eat on the... More

This place is just phenomenal! It's a little place, but the food and drinks are great! Complimentary bowl of plantains which are just awesome with homemade salsa. Tre pictures below show the fantastic food. The hangar steak with lobster, grilled asparagus was fantastic. Everything was great! The deserts were awesome as well. This place is the best kept secret in... More

What a gem of a place. The food is fresh and true, service is excellent and the vibe is solid. This place is genuine and reliable and in that sense it really eclipses so many of the currently trendy but soulless Fairfield County restaurants.

Firstly I like the fact there's valet parking and that the wait staff wear white uniforms. I am still disappointed that the tables are so close together so the feeling is cramped and it's a little noisy. There are good margaritas and cocktails here and an interesting, varied Latin menu with specials. The timing and service are good - very... More

At first, I was skeptical judging by the fake banana leaves displayed outside the restaurant. Once inside, it was beautifully colorful with its nice ambiance. The hardwood floors made it beautiful while the blue stemmed glasses added beauty. The free salsa with banana chips was so good! Salsa was a bit salty though. Our entree were so good! We also...
