“Feijoada da mamãe!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic snacks! We eat here because it was full of Brazilians and rapidly we got to know why: cheap and wonderful little snacks best with beer or caipirinha. Don't miss Feijoada da Mamãe, which includes all the traditional ingredients in a small beauty snack

“Nice fingerfood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

You likely would have to wait for a table in this beer & tapas bar, but it pays. If you are not Brazilian, don't be shy and try the most you can. Don't miss "choquinho" (little schock), a big shrimp covered and fried with breadcrumbs and fries.

“Worthwhile”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

Solid Boteca food at fair prices. The service was friendly. I ate outside on a nice late March evening after a few drinks at the nearby Academia da Cachaca.
