“Excellent food and service.”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

Our waiter was attentive and friendly. The food was delicious and authentic to a particular region of Brazil. This is not a churrascaria. The moqueca was specular. Our calamari were perfect. Loved the drinks. Sorry we didn't have room for dessert.

“I keep coming back”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

I keep coming back to the restaurant whenever I am in the area. The food is fantastic, the service is very good, the atmosphere is Brazil - relaxed. The location is right on the harbor and the salty air just adds to the fantastic atmosphere. The pricing is reasonable and staff is very knowledgeable and not shy in recommending their dishes depending on what you have a hankering for.

“Authentic Brazilian Food at its Best”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

This is a terrific, authentic Brazilian restaurant- not a Brazilian BBQ joint. Most of the dishes are seafood based and are prepared in a "moqueca" or pot and served to you in the moqueca. The seafood is abundant and they can be made for 1 or 2 people and are actually enough to feed 3 or 4.

The restaurant is upstairs in the harbor shops and offers a pretty view of the water, so request a table by the window-especially if you are there around sunset. There is live Brazilian music on the weekends as well.

“Unique and delicious”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

We went for dinner on a Friday night. There was a Brazilian singer/guitarist which made the ambiance special. The service was excellent - the waiter made wonderful recommendations for Brazilian specialties. He was very attentive but also gave us the appropriate privacy. The portions were large and very tasty. Three adults shared 2 appetizers and one special fish Moqueca, and that was plenty. We will definitely return to this special restaurant.

“Not your usual Brazilian restaurant”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

This was the first time I had Moqueca Brazilian food and it was very good. I read the other reviews and also checked their online menu, and I was not disappointed. I had Fish Moqueca and it was very yummy. The Xingu Brazilian black beer was smooth like chocolate :-)
