The moqueca is a traditional food in Brazil and here you need to taste! It is delicious! A nice place to visit and enjoy some of other Brazilian’s food! I loved my first visit there and I’ll be back a lot of times!

The food at this welcoming Brazilian restaurant is delicious. Because most of the sauces are thickened with yucca, it is a real find for those who are gluten-free. We recommend the shrimp bobo and the banana lasagna among other dishes. The service is prompt, knowledgeable...More
