Brazilian and Portuguese Restaurant

A delightfully typical Brazilian and Portuguese restaurant with friendly staff and excellent service. A local tradition for over 20 years.

There is a friendly bar at the front where you will find lots of locals hanging out and the front opens right up in the summer months adding a somewhat al fresco feel. The restaurant has a rustic authentic ambience.

If you just fancy a drink at the bar after work, why not try the world famous Brazilian “Caipirinha”, made with Cachaça, lime and sugar. Two types of Cachaca-Pitu and Lebron are available. Also-a passion fruit caipirinha.

Some tasty starters include Shrimp, Yucca or Chicken Croquettes, their soups are also good as is the Shrimp Sautee in garlic and wine sauce.

They offer a wide range of main courses from the grilled boneless chicken to delicious grilled marinated lamb. They also have some very good seafood including stuffed lobster. One of the house specialities is their Feijoada Completa, which is a rich black bean stew with various meats and is a popular Brazilian dish. Vatapa, a monkfish and shrimp in shrimp purée is another signature dish.

Open 7 days a week from 8am to 10pm.
