We are 2 vegetarian girls, we took 2 quesadillas - it was way too much! The meal was really big, and so tasty! We got for snacks before the meal free tacos and salsas. The service was wonderful. We will defenetly come here again.

I had the garlic shrimp and my wife had a fish dish. Both were excellent. Fresh and well prepared. Bastos is off the beat and path but well worth finding. Service excellent.
