Came here for a breakfast on a Sunday. The lovely female staff member working was very chatty and even explained to us a local legend about a man who walks around shirtless apparently called "ultrasneds". We were in stitches and this made our morning.

Disappointed with the standard of cocktail we were served. Spoke to the staff at the time who were unfriendly and non apologetic There are other bars around the corner, try there instead

I ordered a veggie burger and it was so terrible because there was no veggie burger patty only grilled vegetables which shouldve been mentionedd on the menu. Such a poor experience and I paid 8 pound for that burger.

The menu consists just of two dishes and doesn't include drinks, desserts or coffee, but 7 pounds for it still it's a great deal. The main dish is quite complete and you don't get the place with an empty belly. Some other reviews are right,...More

The staff was ok, the place is clean, and the food is not that bad. But it just shouldn't be called Boteco do Brasil. There's nothing Brazilian about it!! It's a shame, not worth it.

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the

In Brazil, “Boteco” is the friendly neighborhood bar with lively music and atmosphere. And that’s exactly where our inspiration comes from!
