About Boteco Do Brasil Edinburgh
Staff could not have been more friendly. We asked for some suggestions in choosing our food and having been recommended a beef stew with refried beans and chorizo we were not disappointed. Admittedly the dish would have benefited from a bit more meat (other than the chorizo I couldn't find any) but it didn't detract much from the taste or quality. The dessert which was little chocolate balls covered in macaroon on a bed of cream, was absolutely to die for! Our waiter was very attentive, without being obtrusive. We were only interrupted by loud cheers during a football match on TV but it wasn't really an issue. Overall I was delighted with it.
Good vibe at cool place
Good bar food, well served. Ambience is of a busy bar with cool salsa music.
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.
