“Maybe just not my type of food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

Ate here one night in Nov. Ordered a casserole of different pork parts. Nice big serving, meat was a little overcooked and salty. The flour on the side (sorry can't remember what product it comes from) was a new experience, just seemed dry and dusty in the mouth. Maybe I'm just not used to Brazilian cooking ... would probably try other restaurants if returning to the area. Live music was a nice touch.

“The Best Coxinhas of South Florida”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

The Food is good in general but the Coxinhas are the best one in south florida and I eat plenty of them
I have gone during a few holidays and the services is OK . Sometimes they have take a while to bring the food from when ordered but it comes warm and good

Nice Place to go for quick each and head to the club later

Staff was friendly and courteous. Food was good, but nothing special. Great people watching on Espanola Way.

“A SoBe Favorite - from a frequent SoBe visitor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

One of my favorite restaurants in South Beach, worth every penny. I consider myself a frequent South Beach visitor and on each trip we have at least one dinner at Boteco. Their Pichante steak (their specialty) is amazing. And this is coming from someone who usually doesn't even like steak!!!

Wonderful atmosphere, great service. Very laid back and authentic. Although it is on Espagnola way, it doesn't feel like a tourist trap, but rather a very down to earth friendly local restaurant where the food is great.

They frequently have live entertainment with Bossa Singer/Guitarist duos (note to the owners: I really miss Monica Da Silva, hope she'll be back soon).

All in all a beautiful laid-back authentic restaurant for great food and a wonderful atmosphere.

“Awful food and hiden charges be careful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

This place appear be nice, but after order you can get, cold and untaste food, we sent the plates nearly full up... the shrimp has not been great.. and the service average..
however on the end of bill the charge 18 % gratitud ... ???? be careful, we had alterate the bill and remove the gratitud are on excess...
advise: if you pay by card.. on the end of bil, remove the price on gratitud and put yours... dont worry they cannot charge more as you sign..on the end billl not worth for bad food ..never again
