I absolutely love this restaurant ever since I first found this place. Having been to several Brazilian restaurants before I must say this one is hands down, my FAVORITE! Cafe no Bule has great food, great people that come, and I have made some good friends in a short time with the Brazilian people here. It is worth your time... More

I came to this restaurant with my two sons for dinner. The place is located in a strip mall plaza but it was easy to find and accessible right from the main street. The food was good. Café style but they also have buffet style. We ordered from the menus. Everything was very good (chicken, steak, and all side dishes).... More

Food quality is good and fresh, the quantity is definitely adequate. Don't expect a culinary explosion of flavors and spices to your palate. It's tasty but more of a grill taste, which is good. I ordered the grilled pork chop with onions and pinto beans and rice. It was very tasty, especially the grilled pork chop with perfect grill seasoning... More

Went there for lunch. The place is half cafe half grocery store. The service is very attentive and the owner is super nice. I am no expert on authenticity of Brazilian food, but can say that it was very good and inexpensive. And the portions are very good. We shared a piece of passion fruit cake, which was very rich...

A Brazilian restaurant in Tampa that's not a high priced churrascuria! Okay. I'm not Brazilian and can't vouch for the authenticity. But I will say that when we stopped by for lunch, we were the only folks not ordering or conversing in Portuguese. I do know that I love Brazilian food, especially the loaded burgers known as X-Tudos. The Cafe... More
