An excellent storefront restaurant, which is typical in Montclair, that serves delicious ethnic food. I have eaten there many times, steak, shrimp, stew, salmon. All so tasty and authentic. Staff is very informative and the owner is always on the premises. I dislike small restaurants that are run by bored staff. This place is always hopping. I highly recommend it!

Spectacular food at a BYOB spot. Small spot so get a reservation first, but the food is well worth it. The steaks are cooked to perfection and all the toppers have so much flavor. I would highly recommend and definitely want to go back.

Small, rustic Brazilian restaurant that has eclectic decor sans the bright Brazilian colors delivers a delightful dinner. The food, ambience and service were all top notch. I had the shrimp with garlic and olive oil for the appetizer and it was phenomenal. The vegetarian platter was very tasty as well.

Great service - friendly waitstaff - delicious food - cozy atmosphere
Try the beef straganoff - who knew that Brazil had a version of this and the way they prepare it here is outstanding
The rice they serve as a side dish is incredible
Looking forward to going back
Very small - be sure to make reservation!

The food was super yummy , Brazilian cuisine at its best . Creative while maintaining traditional flavor. Chicken w okra , deep fried mashed pumpkin stuffed w dry meat, steaks and onions , and yucca cake for dessert ! The restaurant is cozy and very cute . Service was good as well . Can't wait to go there again.
