TRIPADVISOR IN BRAZIL!? Wow, it was so helpful! I work at a steakhouse in Miami (Gotham Steak) and we are very aware of the power of tripadvisor, but I didn't know it was big in Brazil. I guess where the "gringo" travels, the "gringo" provides feedback! #1 on Manaos Tripadvisor, I ate solo at Banzeiro (I had a 24 hour layover on my way back to Miami from Rio) last week, it was a very nice experience. They stared by offering me a small cup of soup as a amuse bouche (delightful). I then ordered their salada do camarao with flavorful little tomatoes and a mild white cheese (tasty balsamic vin dressing tambem).
I then had their house special, a filet of the best fish in the Amazon; Tambaqui, black rice, and farofa. it was OFF THE CHAIN.
Afterwards, muito satisfeito, i declined dessert but they offered me a few small bites of cake with my espresso. Then, they gave me a gift of a plate that indicates i had their house special. it is tacky and I'm not sure what to do with it, but a very kind gesture.
Service was great, everyone very kind, and (OH!) it was pouring when I arrived by cab. I was met at the cab door by a gentleman with a umbrella. He was getting poured on but was concerned with me being dry. He was there when I left as well.
It was a GREAT experience!
