    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!

    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

    their fish muqueca is wonderful, especially if you are sharing one of the big plates with someone. get an order of the fried mandioca and please! order their chocolate flan dessert or a truffle.

    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

    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

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

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

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

    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).

    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.
