About Boteco Do Brasil Glasgow
I booked last minute on Saturday for a meal before attending a concert nearby. The 5pm menu was small but the food itself was outstanding. We had the “cheese balls” and soup as starters. The soup was said to be minestrone but didn’t appear to be the traditional tomato base, it was very chunky and warming. The cheese balls were fantastic, beautifully soft, and fluffy inside. The mains of Brazilian stew and spaghetti with fresh seafood were fantastic. Wonderful flavours and excellently presented. I would really recommend it to anyone looking for something a bit different with excellent value for money.
Fab fresh seafood
As usual, friendly staff, lovely fresh seafood and nice atmosphere. Will be back next week.
