The menu at Batuqui is full of exciting and unique choices and they are known for their authentically grilled top sirloin steak called Picanha. They offer appetizers like the Frango Passarinho which is fired chicken in a cilantro sauce or the Salgadinhos which are savory hand-rolled Brazilian bar snacks and entrees like the hearty traditional Brazilian party dish called Feijoada. They have fantastic salads and an array of intriguing Brazilian entrees. Choices include fish, vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options in addition to the grilled meats and Brazilian steaks that make Batuqui such an appealing spot. Love desserts? Their homemade chocolate bon bons called Brigadeiros or Coconut Butter Cake are amazing too!

The tri tip steak was amazing. My husband liked the three meat platter. The traditional drink of Brazil was very good.
A really great restaurant with a lovely patio to enjoy some fine Brazilian food.
Excellent caipirinhas! Unique and tasty cod croquettes and shrimp (camarao a Moda Carla) appetizers. Generous lobster dinner. We sat on the porch and enjoyed watching people shopping.
Great place, food was awesome, tastes just like the food in Brazil. Recommended for both price and place as well.
Amazing & the heated tent was so warm.
I love Batuqui! Food is always fresh and delicious and the drinks are equally as good!
We had a wonderful experience! The restaurant is inside a beautiful old house in Shaker Heights. It's a lovely and cozy spot! Our meals were delicious and we were impressed by the extensive wine list. We had a delicious red from Uruguay. Try the yucca if you get a chance. The churros and coconut cake are super yummy! My meal came screaming hot, still bubbling, and the portion sizes were satisfying. I loved the dishes in which the meals were served...charming little ceramic covered pots and bowls. I'd love to come back the next time we're in Cleveland, and I will certainly tell my friends about Batuqui!
Great little local family owned spot!
Celebrating wife’s birthday!
Amazing food and very attentive staff!
Everything we ordered was delicious! I can't believe we haven't been there before because we have really been missing out. I hope we get back very soon.
My 3 faves I got are always amazing and tasty
Amazing dinner as usual! The service is outstanding and the food is delicious. Definitely recommend!!
Our first time. We had a stew and a grilled beef dish by the fireplace, both very good. We enjoyed not so much service as friendly hospitality. We're glad we came.
Great food and I also really liked the vibe.
The food was amazing! Staff was wonderful, very welcoming and helpful with meal suggestions. I will definitely be returning.
It’s one of my favorite restaurants but Saturday was cold and they wanted to place outside which we declined due to the cold, then placed us inside by the door outside which was still cold! We had a reservation for inside so should have had a good location. Food made up for these inconveniences.
Batuqui is my favorite restaurant! I lived in Brazil as a kid and loved the food! Batuqui’s food is exactly like how I remember traditional Brazilian food tasting!!! So so good! The wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable!! Highly recommend!!
The food was amazing! Service was good! Would highly recommend!
Very delicious food and great drinks. I always celebrate special moments there.
Excellent all around. It was the first time meeting my date, so we had a lot to talk about. We were there for a long time. We never felt rushed.
Amazing place, owners are so friendly and warm. Cant wait till Chagrin location is open!
It took forever for us to get our drinks. Once we got them they were wonderful. Get;s pretty noisy.
Delicious food, exceptional service - could use more veggie options
I Absolutely loved everything about this place. The restaurant was cute and comfortable, the drinks were tasty and the food was absolutely delicious. I would recommend the feijoada and the brigadeiros.
Wow, what an experience. If you ever wanted to experience the delicious flavors of northern Brazil perfectly prepared Batuqui is the place to be. Can't believe this level of delicacy is in Cleveland. You think your going to a normal restaurant setting but you arrive to find this Victorian home that the main level has been modified with a small bar as you enter and then the two adjacent rooms have maybe 8 tables for a welcoming feeling of home. The food choices are tastefully selected to give folks the opportunity to taste the wonderful flavors of Brazil. I took my husband here as we went to Cleveland for his citizenship exam. He's Brazilian and was amazed at the food, drinks and environment. Traditional foods and drinks that have been skillfully perfected to take you to South America. This is a must experience place. Such a welcome culture shock to the Midwest, just wish we had a Botuqui in Toledo, OH. I guess we will be making 2 hours trips to Batuqui in Cleveland every couple months. Thank you for an amazing meal in a perfect setting. Scott & Caio
Great food. Always consistent. Service is excellent.
Batuqui is a family owned authentic Brazilian restaurant. It is cozy, the decor on the walls are handmade and crafted from Brazil, and this by itself makes the experience so much more real. Not to mention the food, flavorful and rich. And the drinks, caipirinha anyone?
We had the moqueca and the churrasco gaúcho and would go back in a heart bit.
Fantastic atmosphere, service, and food is always top notch! The owners are always there to overlook the quality of food and service on the weekends. Fabulous place to go anytime or for a quaint evening.
Great food, drinks and service! The staff us always pleasant and they are taking Covid precautions - we felt safe.
Wonderful experience. I wish they had one in Nashville! Great food and service at the right price
Friendly, cozy place. I can not underestimate how good the food was. Perfect portion size. Incredible flavor combinations. You can feel the personal touch in everything about this place. Will be back many more times.
This was my 1rst time dining here!! Amazing!! The decor delightful, the food scrumptious and our waitress was warm welcoming and attentive!! We ate outside in the heated tent, which was fun and they offer blankets if you need them!! I will definitely be back with more friends and family!! Keep putting out delicious food while allowing us Clevelanders to experience a taste of Brazil!! Thank you!!
We had an absolutely amazing evening with Brazilian friends visiting from Florida. The drinks, appetizers, main courses, and dessert were all fantastic and very authentic, according to our visitors. The service was also excellent. I’m already looking forward to my next dining experience at Batuqui.
Batuqui did a nice job on NYE to make a Covid friendly dining environment by providing heated tents as “new socially distanced” dining space. The heaters did a decent job of keeping the 30 degree Cleveland weather at bay and the service was excellent as always. As one of many small businesses impacted by Covid, their resilience stands as an example of how hard local owners are trying to sustain as “normal” an experience as possible.
Everything is outstanding. Excellent food, cozy & unique setting. Wish we lived closer!
Every visit does not disappoint. Delicious & unique food, excellent service and perfect ambiance. Wish we lived closer.
We have been to Brazil and experienced the food there. Batuqui is the real thing when it comes to Brazilian food. Cod Croquettes and the Pork Belly/Yucca appetizers are a must. And of course - a caipirinha or two !!
absolutely amazing. food was incredible, Carla and Gustavo are wonderful people and have an amazing restaurant.
Great, fresh, unique dishes. Awesome atmosphere in an old house. You won't find another place like this in Cleveland.
Fabulous food and drinks. We had steak, fish, short ribs and shrimp dishes. We all drank caipirinhas. Best meal in a very long time. Dinner in the heated tent was perfect
