The buffet for lunch is a different but clever way of having a quick lunch: you just pay for the weight of your plate, honest and cheap. The staff is friendly and the restaurant is cosy! And above all, the food tastes great. It's amazing!

In all the cities I'm trying to find Brazilian place where I can enjoy authentic food. And I was very lucky to find 'La Cantina' in Brussels! My favourite cocktail Caipirinha was amazing... Also all the dishes we've tried were very tasty and brought me to Brazil.. Sadly we were visiting over the weekend and on Sunday we coudn't come... More

Great place with a soul and an atmosphere... You choose what you eat and how much. This place you'll not find anywhere else in brussels.

Went here with work a few weeks ago, and the meal we got was delicious, there is a really nice atmosphere, and the staff was very friendly. Will definitely come back to try some other dishes.

I enjoy this restaurant every and each time I go eating there. It is the kindness of the personnel, the taste of the caipirinha, the amount of food you get in your plate and the fact that every dish looks just home made. One only criticism, no surimi in the Moqueca please :)

Nice place with nice drawings on the wall. The guide who took us there, told that the painting on the wall changes quite often. The staff is really friendly. Anyhow, you should try the mojito!

Since we were brought to our table we had to wait 15 mins to receive our menus and 15 more minutes to receive our drinks. 30 minutes in total just to drink something! Around 50 minutes in total to receive our food. One of our dishes was meat and it was ok but nothing special at all. The other dish... More

Went here with a group of friends on Friday night - 7.30pm and we were the only ones there for quite some time. Service was great, had a mix of appetizers to start, and the steak was definitely the favourite. I had the knuckle of ham as a main - way too big a portion for me, but it was... More
