The southern edge of Edinburgh’s Old Town is home to the National Museum of Scotland, but it also boasts something of a temple to Brazilian culture at Boteco Do Brasil on Lothian Street. Everything that makes Brazil enticing is celebrated: from samba and soccer to tropical cocktails and delicious, fresh food. You could spend months picking through the traditional Brazilian tapas – a few to target are Risoli de camarão (prawn-filled pastry parcels), carne de sol (seasoned beef with cassava) and coxinha de frango (kind of souped up chicken potato dumplings). Then there are burgers, tasty grilled meats, delicious desserts, live music, a dance floor and everything else making Boteco Do Brasil one of the funnest spots around the Old Town in Edinburgh.
Great food, good all-round selection, and great value for money with the 2 course option less than £7! Went there for Mother’s Day. Will return!
We went on Tuesday to taste their grill platter for two. Both the food an the cocktails were really nice and the staff was friendly and polite. We had a great time and we will definitely visit it again.
Went for the first time with the hubby. Lovely wee place,not a big menu but I like that. Really enjoyed the food,staff very friendly. Will return to try the cocktails & live music another time when I'm not driving.
Great place in every respect. Food was delicious and the staff lovely and friendly. Highly recommend you try this place out. Will definitely be going back.
Food was great, service was great and staff attentive. Couple of small problems- the table we were given was a booth style and was tight in size and I had a fight to get into it as the floor space under the table would have only accommodated a size 4 foot while I am a size 10, the smell of cigarette smoke coming from the outside seating area was very annoying and maybe they should section of an area of the alfresco area away from the door for smokers. But all in all it was a good experience.
I disagree with all of the bad reviews I've seen about this restaurant, it is unique Brazilian food so if you haven't got your mind open for something new I don't recommend it. The staff was friendly, the food was delicious and the cocktails were even better. Definitely recommend if you want a tropical vibe and different food
The food was amazing. We had never tried Brasilian before today and we loved it! The service was good and the lady serving us was really welcoming and graded us on our pronunciation of the dishes when we ordered 😀. All in all a great meal was had by all and we would definitely return!
We had a fantastic evening enjoying a good meal, the food was excellent, with first class service, by very friendly staff. There was live music throughout the evening and the selections played were excellent. In all a first class evening, we will be back.
There as part of a group of six. Staff very friendly and helpful. Food came quickly and was great, lots of flavour and cooked well. Maybe not the best cocktails I've ever had, but ok. An enjoyable meal, and would return.
Really helpful and amazing staff...had the best time here for my birthday..they even provided a big sparkler because I forgot to bring candles!! Good food, good value and dancing, live music during dinner then a dj afterwards..perfect evening.
