Braised beef and perfect mash, Barrimundi with caper sauce that was delicious( with slightly underdone broccoli) Calamari fries and Caesar... More

Located in Little Brasil, it's definitely the best place to go for authentic Brasilian food, especially the steaks. You can get a variety of different meats but I will tell you that if you go there, and don't have a steak of some kind, you are really wasting your experience here. Their steaks are beyond unbelievable in quality. So tender... More

I was in town on business during the Olympics in 2016, so it seemed appropriate to try a Brazilian restaurant, but I didn't want Churrascurria. This fit the bill perfectly. Food was tasty, portions were large, service was excellent.

Ordered several traditional Brazilian dishes and was quite dissapointed. Beans and olives were straight from a can and the meat was very average. My wife who is Brazilian was veth disappointed. They even managed to screw up the caipirinha. The staff was very kind and helpful which was the only real positive.

Very nice food and not so expensive. Service is great. We had some steaks which were done as we asked and were very good. Side dishes also home made and fresh. The interior look is not something to brag about and the paper maps on the table does not add to the feeling - but the kids wont notice any... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
