    Any of the muquecas are good. Tried a bunch and they are very tasty. These are basically stews

    Most authentic and delicious Brazilian restaurant in the area! I don't love fish, but I love the muqueca. Delicious fried plantains, caipirinhas (cachaça, sugar and limes), fried yucca. Great service!

    Skip the caipirinhas (weren't good) and go straight for the kill: FEIJOADA.

    Fish Muqueca are authentic. Make sure you get their patties, though. They're are the best in the world!

    Seafood is very good and also their meat dishes, yucca and rice & beans combinations.

    Went out of my comfort zone and ordered the Shrimp Bobo. Was much more flavorful than the Fish & Calamari Moqueca.

    Check out the eponymous fish stew for sure, along with a Caipirinha

    Don't leave without trying the Lasagne of Banana! A unique dish you won't find anywhere and the most delicious.

    Food is pretty good BUT only come here if you have 2 hours to kill! It took 40+ minutes for the food to come out!!!

    Order at least one of these: moqueca (slow-cooked stew); caipirinha (Brazil's national drink); chocolate flan (delicious). - Rachel Leah Blumenthal, CBS Boston Read more

    One of my favorite places. Try the seafood casserole. Yumz.

    Lasagna de banana is worth the place not having many veggie options

    Their "tapioca & coconut" is the best dessert you'll ever have!!!!

    Monica Reksiedler · August 12, 2011
  • Khalid S.

    If you're vegetarian the food is great but triple check your order! A lot of dishes are optionally vegetarian but numerous times have not been communicated to the kitchen as so.

    Khalid Shakir · July 5, 2011

    Seafood reigns supreme at this Brazilian restaurant, but there aren't many vegetarian options. Try the fish soup, shrimp sautee, seafood pie, and moqueca. Definitely stay for the delicious desserts. Read more · December 10, 2010

    Amazing fish order could easily feed two people, especially if you add an app. Only down liquor license. Read more

    With the new space we suspect that the innate, even celebratory warmth of its namesake seafood soups - as well as the live bossa nova - will go a long way toward keeping things intimate. Read more

    Go to Muqueca and have the mariscada. Don't take any prisoners (or sea creatures). Top it off w/ Christina's Ice Cream (take a walk).
