    Cheery Brazilian bar, bumpin’ forró music.

    Not just for drinks! Get the feijoida and you'll feel like you're back in Rio. Often have live music on the weekend.
  • Jastine K.
    The service here is terrible and nothing special to note about the food. However, the upside is that the cocktails are strong and delicious.
  • Natalie V.
    The music was really fun but it was so crowded. Of course, it was a Saturday night so that was expected, but felt like they should have capped the number of people inside at some point.

    Small, lively place with friendly staff. Make a reservation for weekend brunch or be prepared to wait at least an hour. Once the live music starts it gets too loud to talk/hear. Great drinks & food.

    From a Brazilian born and raised: the food is meh except for the bolinhos de bacalhau; go for the caipirinha de limao, others are just mixed drinks, not real caipis; the atmosphere is nice though

    The food is great. The pitchers of caipirinha are strong but you'll forget and order more once the live samba band starts playing. Don't be shy. Make sure to dance.

    mixto for 2 is unbelievably delicious, the shrimp and rice is perfection. The caipirinhas are lethal, mojitos are fantastic.

    Food is okay but service is the worst. They kick you out to quickly get other costumers even if you're still eating and consuming beverages. No respect.

    Worst service and when our waitress asked if we needed change, had the audacity of taking her tip out before returning the difference.

    From the filthy, dirt-encrusted tables through to the broken toilets - this place is foul. The caipirinha's were disgusting. 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻

    The dancing, live bands, and drinks are great. But I prefer stopping in when there are few people inside. It's a great place to grab a coffee, a bite to eat and watch some sports at the bar.

    Meh. I'm Brazilian and wasn't impressed. To start with, the food is not authentic. Waiters only care about money. If you don't want to order more food, they'll kick you out. NOT the Brazilian way.

    This is definitely an afternoon drinking spot, dead on weekend evenings. Might have something to do with the feeling of being in a mafia movie under the Williamsburg bridge...

    Over priced, loud, don't even sell Brazilian beer, corny, cheesy, tacky, if you want to try Brazilian food go to Casa or via BRASIL in the city. Forget about this place. Hate it.

    Nice place, the atmosphere is very good, you really can enjoy it. But the night can be really expensive very quickly ( 30% more with the tips and taxes on the original price), be careful!!

    É muvuca, música boa e brasileiros. O barman francês só é simpático se a gorjeta for gorda, senão ele é bem grosseiro. Caipirinha podia ter menos gelo e a jarra $50 podia dar p/ pelo menos 4 pessoas.
