Brazil is famous for a lot of things – bright colours, vibrant streets, rhythmic music, beautiful people, refreshing cocktails, a fistful of football world cups, dancing, exotic street food and legendary grilled meat. At Boteco Do Brasil you get all of this – well, except the world cups. Handily close to Argyle Street station on the eastern edge of Glasgow’s city centre, Boteco Do Brasil on Trongate is superb for group events, exotic dining or simply a great night out. Cocktails, live music, DJs, a dance floor and funky decor are all part of the fun, but the food is particularly special. You could visit four times and still be trying new things from the traditional tapas, mains, burger and dessert menus, but we recommend reaching for the Camarão ao alho e óleo (pan-fried tiger prawns with cherry tomatoes) followed by a traditional Brazilian Vaca Atolada (slow-cooked beef ribs with cassava) and a side of batatas apimentada (cajun fries), finished off with some decadent brigadeiro.
Cocktails were great and the food was amazing. All the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Had such a great experience I have now booked to have my birthday party there.
We spent about 2 hours in a pleasant environment, great meal and very friendly staff ready to help. We had ordered Feijoada and Picanha na Chapa and for the desert Brigadeiro and Torta do Chef. Beautiful. We felt stuffed, even we had no starter.
Absolutely superb food & first class service. I’m not a great meat eater so thought I’d be limited in choice. This was absolutely not the case, great choice of seafood which was just perfect. I would highly recommend & will definitely return. Cocktails were also yummy!
I loved the time I had with my friends at Boteco. Lively atmosphere!! Great food and the staff were very friendly. I highly recommend. My go to place from now on.
This was our second visit here, definitely won't be our last. We were both left open-mouthed when the food arrived at our table, don't think I've ever seen so much food for 2 people. The food itself was fantastic, fresh seafood cooked just right, pasta & rice were also cooked perfectly. Although we were both struggling towards the end, we were both determined to finish as the food was just too nice to leave. Also need to mention just how good the restaurant and bar staff were. The young girl waiting on our table had just started, but that didn't show as she was very professional, courteous and always had a smile when she came to our table. All the staff were just as nice and pleasant, which made our night at Boteco Do Brasil fantastic.
Arranged a treasure hunt for my girlfriend and Boteco was part of the hunt - sent her and her best friend for cocktails here as one of the stops and staff & drinks were absolutely phenomenal! Staff were very supportive, welcoming and helpful with everything - including arrange and treated them like royalty. Service was so good that even if the drinks were mediocre (they most certainly were above and beyond) then we would be back just because of the welcoming amazing atmosphere and amazing staff!!
We were late arriving and the restaurant was very busy, but still had kept us a table. Service was fast and efficient. House red wine was excellent and and the churrasco, five different grilled meats with salad, meant for two was easily enough for three of us and was perfectly cooked and delicious. The atmosphere was very lively, typical of a Glasgow Friday night out but still reminded us of our own nights out in Rio.
Great atmosphere, loved the music the staff were lovely and very attentive without being intrusive. Steak platter for two was fantastic. Only negative £7.50 cocktail served in a plastic glass! Poor selection of south American beers. Should look at what tri beca do with their selection of beers. If I go brasilian I don't want Heineken. That said we had a great night and will be back
Most of us really enjoyed our meal, and the cocktails were also good. Service was friendly however one main and one side were forgotten about so one of our party didn't receive hers until about 15min after the rest of us - she got a free drink but I didn't feel this really made up for it. The place was packed and we felt a bit crammed in when people tried to get by, but can see why it is popular, atmosphere and music were really good. Would definitely return.
Amazing food, the tapas is delicious especially the stuffed peppers and the cassava! The staff were lovely and helpfully explained all of the dishes that us vegetarians could eat! The lasagne my sister had looked delicious as well and mum says the veggie burger is the best one she has had. I would also recommend the caipirinha cocktail!
