Maybe people think all food is great (it can't be) and this place deserves a good review but definitely not the greatest place you'll ever eat. HELPFUL TIP: You can definitely share one of the big pots for two people. You'll see people who ordered...More

Discovered this excellent Brazilian seafood restaurant. Interesting and unusual drinks and dishes. Their Signature dishes were seafood in a clay pot with vegetables and spices and were excellent. Appetizers were also excellent as was the service.

Real good food and good service, we had a few appetizers and shared a Moqueca so we can try a few different things, the apps were delicious and we couldn’t stop dipping our bread in the Moqueca sauce. Would definitely go back.
