For a different taste of Brazil this is a great experience. A couple can share a dish and appetizer and you can still go home with leftovers. The Tortinha De Palmito appetizer was a meal in itself! We had the Fish Moqueca and the fish...More

Visited while on a business trip. The food and service were excellent. The fried plantains and the steak were really tasty. The moqueca was also really good. Big enough to share.

I thought the food was excellent! The service was great but I was there right at 5:00 PM. The scallop appetizer was tasty and was cleaned without any sand. A little overdone but still good. The seafood in the clay pot was outstanding. I would...More

Great restaurant with an amazing view of the harbor. The stroganoff and Brazilian rib- eye are our favorites. They have a nice selection of imported Brazilian beverages. certain dish on the menu may only be available on specific days.

When on a Friday night.. The drinks are small and expensive, dishes are small. Service is poor. Not good value for money.

Although the appetizers were somewhat interesting, the entrees didn't meet up to expectations. Most of us ordered steaks and all came up cooked well over our orders. My rice tasted fishy; not too palatable with a steak order. Service was ok, but disappointed the server...More

Response from Connie K | Reviewed this property |
No - It's specializes in seafood cooked in a moqueca clay pot and it's wonderful. They have a wide variety of dishes that are all delicious, even beef stroganoff if you must have beef.
Do they have a wine list and a corkage fee?

Yes, they have a wine list. I don't know about the corkage fee. We didn't bring a bottle of wine but I wish we had thought of it.
