Not a good experience for brunch. The restaurant was completely empty. The staff completely ignored us, even though we were the only patrons. We ended up eating elsewhere.

The feijoada was too expensive for the quality and variety of food they were offering.
They didn't even have the traditional "torresmo" available, and the "farofa" was super plain, like the ones you buy at the supermarket.
If you are looking for seafood, it's a good place to go. But do not go for the feijoada, you'll be spending way more money than you should.

As usual Coco Bambu’s food is delicious , tasty & unique !
Service was excellent & attentive !
The restaurant is trying new format & is now offering single portions for a lower price which give you the option of having your own portion rather than the sharing concept !
Like it either way and always considered special & do not mind paying extra for good quality or quantity !
I didn’t have the Miami Spice Menu but one person at our table had it & it was excellent choice, next time I save my appetite for the Miami Spice Menu !

It's most probably the best Brazilian contemporary restaurant in Miami Dade County, with a varied and well combined menu. But needs attention in some items - the Feijoada buffet, while good in appearance, had most of the dishes excessively salty. Also, it was Saturday early afternoon, when it's
supposed to have the premises still plenty of customers and the service attendants vanished - it was difficult to get someone to show up, so we decided to skip dessert since we figured that would be delaying too much for us to leave. Nevertheless we intend to return to give another shot.

I've been to Coco Bambu before and when I asked the food from the menu I had one of the best experience. Last Sunday I tried the buffet that they have and it was not only a waste of time but also money. Almost everything was really cold and the food wasn't good at all.

Where to begin!? We had an amazing experience at Coco Bambu. It was the perfect way to spend our final night in Miami. The restaurant is immaculate. We sat on the patio which was a great way to enjoy dinner while still being a part of the energy that is Miami. The food was top notch and we chose the “family style” option which was more than enough for two. The highlight of the evening though was our server Evanydro. He was wonderful! His genuine hospitality ,knowledge of the menu and overwhelming kindness was most appreciated when we had a small problem with our phone and couldn’t arrange transportation as quickly as planned. A million thanks to Evanydro and the entire staff at Coco Bambu. I 100% recommend this restaurant and I look forward to revisiting it again.

Excellent food and nice atmosphere. Used a Groupon and took advantage of some nice early bird specials. Prices are a tad high especially on the appetizers so taking advantage of specials is important. We all enjoyed the place.

Love the food & the ambiance of the restaurant !!
Have been there quite a few times !
The last few times there I noticed less people ! Menu has changed & prices still very high !
Perhaps the place is too big & choices are highly priced although they are to be shared but it could be slightly intimidating and might be the reason why people are staying away from it ! It is a pity because it is a lovely restaurant & very tasty food !

Ordered the stroganoff medium, came well done. Chef re fired and was perfect. Mushrooms were beyond plain, we had them served on the side as my husband doesn’t like them. Surprised they were not cooked in wine or garlic....? When second main course was delivered, no dinner plates were given to us so we just ate from the shared platter.
Server was very good and apologetic.
