A friendly welcome preceded an interesting and very pleasant meal. Two senior adults and a five year old boy all were pleased by the meal and service. The adults had the national dish of Brazil, the five year old was satisfied with his steak tips. We tried their nonalcoholic drinks, fruit based and again each was able to find something to their liking. The young man liked the strawberry based mixture, the adults a pina callada, and a blueberry based one. The staff willingly answered our questions and provided good advise. The place was very clean and well decorated. The price was right.

Came here on a Friday night.
Food pretty tasty but also all very similar but plus side, seemed clean and healthy and well priced.

Crab cake starter is disgusting....be warned!

Friendly service but environment a little like a canteen.

May return but has some things that need improving.

The place is friendly and well decorated with great touch of Brazilian culture and local art. The food is fantastic and the price is worth it. All the MUQUECAS, which arethe signature dishes are delicious!

The owner "Fatinha" is a wonderful chef and sweet person who is striving to do the best for her clients and the community. The environment is nice and clean with comfortable space for large or small groups. It is a bit difficult to park on weekends but there is a City parking lot behind the building of the restaurant. They are the only Brazilian restaurant in Boston area with "Caipirinhas" made out of wine! You must try it! kkk

We walked by this tiny, unimposing restaurant on a Sunday afternoon at 5:00 pm, and it was already packed with people! We went inside to check out the menu and were greeted warmly by a waiter. The menu looked interesting, but what convinced us to eat there were the aromas permeating from the kitchen. We started with a freshly-made fish soup (they make it several times a day) followed by their signature dish, seafood Moqueca (a stew that incorporates Brazilian native Indian, African and Portuguese recipes cooked in a clay pot). It was absolutely divine! We ended the meal with a sweet treat made with evaporated milk... delicious. The service was friendly and efficient and the cost was very reasonable. Best meal we had in Boston!

We had a great meal, highlighted by a tasty and filling feijoada. Their caipirinhas were a bit less than what I was hoping for, as they are forced to use a low-alcohol wine-based cachaca (Never thought that possible, before this!) Booooo to the state liquor laws!
