The restaurant itself is small, long and narrow. There are a few tables and a bar up front, it is never too crowded. (Except for when soccer is on!) I have been here for lunch many times and also frequented for dinner a few times. I even took some food home as take-out. All in all I must have been here like 15 times. I have never been disappointed!
The food is great, the presentation is okay- but once you taste it you will certainly enjoy!
My favorite dishes are the traditional rice and bean dish (Feijoada). Feijoada is made with black beans and pork meats. It also comes with collard greens as a side dish.
You should order a Caipirinha to go with your meal! This is a hot one! I mean, the amount of proof in this drink - whoooo! Light drinkers should only have one or half of one!
For dessert, pick off the dessert tray - you will not be disappointed; any of these will be awesome. Flan (Brazilian style), Brigadeiro (chocolate fudge candy) [My personal favorite], Beijinho de coco (coconut fudge candy), Cajuzinho (chocolate fudge candy with peanuts), or Quindim (coconut with eggs pie).
Then you can have a Brazilian coffee with an after-dinner drink if you please.
