A little piece of Brazil in Loulé. In Brazil, the boteco (buteco), or botequim, was traditionally known as a place where alcoholic beverages were sold, serving as a meeting place for "bohemians", who looked for a good drink, snacks and a chat without obligation. Boteco Santista in Loulé is a place where you can taste Brazilian drinks, dishes, and tapas accompanied by good music and a very good mood!
