About Boteco Do Brasil Edinburgh
Booking for 4 - 2 couples. The service was friendly and helpful. The place was really nice. I love the wall art. The food was excellent value without doubt. 8 courses between the 4 of us. All 4 starters were delicious. Mussels and chicken were our choices. The only tiny fault (and it is a small one) was that the main, fish, though excellently battered and prepared was not tasty. It could be a seasonal thing? The chips and salad with it were delicious. My chicken coconut curry was lovely and the rice was excellent quality. I also tried a Chilean spirit similar to grappa which I loved. The cocktails were tasty. Very hard to fault this lovely place.
interesting food, great value
Having 6 tapas to share between 2 people was great, able to taste a variety of different flavours, some worked and some didn't
Vibrant Brazilian restaurant in Edinburgh’s Old Town
Originating in Glasgow, Boteco Do Brasil is a new, vibrant restaurant and bar in Edinburgh, bringing a taste of Brazil to the capital’s diners. Located on Lothian Street in the Old Town, Boteco Do Brasil is home to a wide range of traditional dishes, unique cocktails and bright decor. With a large tapas and a la carte menu, visitors can sample the true taste of Brazil and enjoy Brazilian music in the evening, which creates an exciting carnival buzz.
Fresh ingredients, homemade exotic cuisine
The a la carte menu in Boteco Do Brasil features pizzas made popular in the sister restaurant in Glasgow. The tropicana and Boteco pizzas are noticeably different but equally impressive – the former is made with pineapple, mango and ham and the latter with spicy chicken and red onion. Mains like feijoada (a Brazilian stew with black beans, pork ribs, smoked bacon, salt beef and smoked sausage), and the traditional Sunday lunch of Brazilians, the churrasquinho variado (a Brazilian mix grill BBQ with salad) are a hit with meat lovers.
Some of Boteco Do Brasil’s homemade tapas dishes heavily feature meat, for example the coxinha de frango (soft potato dough filled with chicken) and the carne de sol (seasoned strips of beef served with cassava), whereas options such as the salada native (mixed green leaves with fresh tropical fruit) and the salad caprese (made with fresh buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes & basil) offer a healthy alternative.
Short walk to Edinburgh Waverley train station
Boteco Do Brasil is in a prime setting on Lothian Street, close to the popular George Square and a short fifteen minute walk to Edinburgh Waverley rail station. There are several bus routes heading out of the Old Town area, and taxi ranks are located nearby.
