Right in the Zürich centre - you would not notice this little treasure.
Food was excellent with fish, meat and vegetarian night menu options.
Really tasty and beautifully prepared, seasoned and served.
Dishes and desserts so Brazilian that you would not find them somewhere else.
Service was fast and very attentive.
Looking forward to go back - the only room for improvement is the too small place. It allowed us to make friends with the table by our side and smelled like food.
They will have to enlarge the business and get a bigger place.
Book before going or you will not get a table!

A very nice little Brazilian restaurant in the old town Zürich. From the small but well thought out traditional menu we choose the Picanha (steak) and the Moqueca (traditional fish stew) and they were simply great. Being half Brazilian myself, and having lived decades in Brazil, I can truly say the food is as good as (if not better) than what you may find there. Attention is given to the presentation as well.

The place is very cozy and its small size also helps giving it a warm welcoming feeling. Despite being a typical restaurant, they have avoided the pitfall of trying to over decorate it, achieving instead a very stylish yet cozy and warm interior design.

Service is very friendly and successfully blends typical Brazilian friendliness with competence. A very nice combination. Even though the owner was leaving shortly after we arrived, she came back just to ensure everything was ok with our orders. This very much highlights the attention to detail and the level of commitment they have for what they do, and it left a very nice impression. It is surely a place we are going to visit again and could wholeheartedly recommend.

If the names gives out any clues (Little Brazil) do not forget to book in advance (or try going for lunch were you may find an attractively priced Lunch Menu). Prices are in line with Zürich standards and well worth it.

Small and warm piece of Brazil right next to us.
New place in Niederdorf serving brazilian traditional food (not grilled meat swords) but rather empanadas, fish stew, marinated grilled beed, pork with beans etc with a lot of different side dishes.
Tip top Caipirinha, one of the best in town.
Live music and friendly service. Romantic without being formal rather cosy making possible to talk to neighbouring tables.
Beware that the place is small so it is imperative to book your table in advance.
In summary: we had a good time

Based in the heart of Zurich (Niederdorf), The Little Brazil restaurant is small and exciting eating place specialized in the Brazilian cuisine.

Everything is sensational from a friendly staff, clean cool interior design featuring all the Brazil states in mini frames, good Brazilian music and food presentations shows the huge attention to details, are works of art.

The food is a heady and ingenious mix of Brazilian flavours, ideas and culinary precision. I have been there several times either for lunch or for dinner and I have tried different dishes…I could ensure that quality is consistently good.

I recommend you to try
