Of the best reviewed restaurants in Little Rock, this place is easily the most affordable. The food tastes great as well and has a very unique flavor to it. The salads are amazing. You can't go wrong with them. Each salad brings its own unique Brazilian flavor to the mix. In fact, just about anything on the lunch menu is great and unique. Have never been to this restaurant for dinner, but it is known for being more of a lunch place than a dinner place. Should be one of the first restaurants that you check out for anyone visiting Little Rock.

Nice little Brazilian place. Food is not bad - nothing spectacular but respectable. Very reasonably priced.

Absolutely LOVE Bossa Nova. The food and service is wonderful and you cannot go wrong w/the Salpicao or the Brazilian Cheese Bread... don't miss out when you come to LR.

Visiting Little Rock we checked TR for some ideas.
The idea of Brazilian cuisine sounded interesting, and then we found Bossa Nova listed as a top pick.
We were greeted by Caio a nephew of the owner and he was very helpful in picking our entrees.
We started two Caipirinhas, a Brazilian beverage that's close to a Margarita. It's made from muddled limes, sugar, and cachaca (Brazilian Rum)
We had two Mista salads. The salads consisted of several types of spring greens, spinach, Mandarin oranges, candied nuts in a light sweet vinager-based dressing.
My BW ordered the panquecas de frango with catupiry cheese with rice. I had bolas de salmao with a creamy red sauce. I asked for a cocktail sauce instead of the tartar sauce. The patties are much better tasting with the red sauce that the chef whipped up.
We had a dish of pao de queijo, that's cheese rolls made with yucca flower.
If Brazilian food like Bossa Nova is as good in other restaurants, I've found a new favorite cuisine.
