About Boteco Do Brasil - Glasgow
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.

Outstanding service and wide selection of delicious choices of food to suit every different palate! We were a table of 5, 3 of us are in power wheelchairs and one uses a walker - and access was NO PROBLEM - next visit will be for the Monday nighty disco🤣
Fantastic place!!! Staff, food, music and atmosphere were all awesome. Had one of the best nights. Will be my go to place from now on.
Great night - food was lovely and you can't go wrong with a bit of live music!! Would recommend it as a fab night out
Amazing!! Great food, absolutely delicious, great service, always with a smile and very quick, great atmosphere, amazing live band and dj. Best night out in Glasgow!!!
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!!
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!
I was never there. we were in Edinburgh and it was brilliant.my husband and myself went to Boteco do Brazil and the service was excellent.i think the young man who attended to us was French ,he was very polite and made perfect mojitos. the food was lovely .
Great food, the staff were very attentive and explained about the meals so I was confident in trying Brazilian food instead of playing safe. My wife enjoyed the cocktails, the range of different lagers was nice. Live music was great. We will go again
Visited using Groupon voucher for meat feast and cocktails. Meat feast was a good sized portion and really tasty. Good range of cocktails too! Overall atmosphere was really chilled, staff lovely and friendly, couldn't do enough for you. Would def recommend visiting here.
Staff were incredibly welcoming and helpful -bouncers and bar staff. Atmosphere was perfect! Being able to have a table for our party was great! Music was fantastic!! Will definitely be back! Ps. Tequila with sugar and pineapple is my new fave!
Perfect pre gig venue when attending anything at the Barrowlands or Celtic Park. Relaxed atmosphere and great value for money. Food was great, a s3lection of tapas or traditional Brazilian main courses and staff very friendly. Would definitely go back.
Probably one of the worst dining experiences I have had in the past 20 years. Limited menu with several pasta options which I was not aware of as a Brazilian food staple. The server was asked about the menu and recommended the "cap" steak strips on a sizzler plate with cassava - It's a good job I have my own teeth as the meat that arrived was tough / fatty and not pleasant. My wife opted for the tapas and 3 prawns for £5 seems pretty poor - the deep fried chicken thighs smelled odd and tasted wrong and so were left - I think possibly left out in preparation rather than kept refrigerated but that is only conjecture on my part. I have never previously left a restaurant and gone to get a pizza but my wife was so hungry after the poor offering that that is exactly what we did. The cocktails were not great served in plastic glasses and very poor value for money. The place was very busy and the other diners appeared to be having a great time so I did not think any complaint I made would be taken note of as apparently 95% of people were happy. On line reviews are also good - I would not be going back so there it is - for us not good !
I reserved a table and when I got there the table was already set up and there was even someone there to direct people to the table. The cocktails were delicious and the music was fantastic
Food and service good but we had reserved a table in advance and were placed right infront of the big screen where the footbal was showing so there were crowds of people starting right at us all through our meal which wasnt great. Would have been better to seat diners at the back!
A fantastic blend of food, booze and music! The friendly and helpful staff are fantastic! Look out for Marli- she is lovely! The live band created a lively atmosphere and was great for a dance!
Spent a very enjoyable Saturday afternoon/evening with my wife, 22 year old daughter and my cousin and her partner. We had 2 seafood sharing platters and numerous alcoholic drinks. The bill wasn't as bad as I had expected.
A very pleasant evening - such attentive staff. They were brilliant! Food came with generous portions, fish cooked to perfection! Stick to salad rather than chips to accompany dishes or you will be too full!
