Just wasn't my cup of tea. I had the Bobo de Camarao. It was okay, seemed to be missing something, but I have never had this dish before so it may have been perfectly prepared and I just didn't like it. The beer selection is a little to long on IPA's. It was busy and I know people who love it. Maybe I should have tried the empanada's. The Pão de Queijo was delicious.

Authentic Brasilian tasting pastries and feijoada. Service was subpar as we were asked to move to another table so that our table could be used for a large party. As soon as we got up with drinks in hand, we noticed there wasn’t any tables available for us. We ended up leaving. Cute layout but service needs work. No staff spoke Portuguese. Hope things improve.

I like the relaxed friendly neighborhood feel to this place. The sandwich and fries were delicious. Their Paulista Pils was delicious. It was served in the appropriate glass and temperature. The service is friendly and timely. Friday night felt like it was time to unwind and this was the setting to do it. The price is right, too!

One of the friendly owners came out and introduced himself during our meal. That was a nice touch. Then he came back out and took our dessert order. We liked our seafood stew but thought the salad was only good, not great. Flan and coffee afterwards were perfect!
