Whenever we are in Portugal, we always make a point to dine several times at this wonderful Brazilian restaurant! The food is fabulous, the service friendly and accommodating to various languages and dietary needs. The restaurant is located on a colorful square in the historic part of this town, 3 minutes from the beach, and around the corner from the... More

I have ate there twice. One I ate at the restaurant. I liked. Asked for the picanha. Good food. Second time was not that good. Decided to order at home: a delivery. I asked for picanha and my husband asked for feijoada. The menu says picanha comes with rice, beans and kale. I ordered a picanha medium rare. The menu... More

We visited here during a stay around Easter. Sitting outside enjoying the sunshine and lovely setting. The gentleman who served us was fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. Our food was nothing short of delicious and amazing. Washed it down with a jug of perfectly balanced and refreshing sangria and a glass of caipirinha! I had the moqueca de... More

Aquarela do Brasil is a nice, small restaurant, with very reasonable prices. The food is incredibly tasty and the staff is welcoming and helpful.

Friendly familiy-atmoshpere. The vaitor is gladly willing to translate the whole menu if needed. I go for a coconut-based chicken-dish. Chicken in sauce with rice. Efficient and very welcoming service. House´s white-wine. A gatering in the restaurant is making lovely noise with laughter and talking. Served bread, olives and a sliced sausage by default. I skip the olives only. Nice... More

Aquarela offers typical Brazilian cuisine with the best quality/price relation. We consider it a must everytime we cruise between Lisbon and Cascais. Try the "feijoada" and "maminha" and stop before dessert if you can.... the "brigadeiro" will make it unique. This is not the place to go if you are looking for a rodizio style of restaurant with quantity over... More

In my hometown, a nice Brazilian although a little overpriced. Nice Picanha, Caipirinha, Feijoada and Quindins. Car Park near by and a garden to stroll after meal with a magnificent sea view, makes it all :-)

It is not a regular "Brazilian restaurant" (I mean, steak house, churrascaria). It is much more than it: It is a traditional Brazilian family restaurant. From the southern Gaucho Pampas steaks (Picanha) to the Northeastern seafood from Salvador (As Vatapá, Moquecas) and a long list of home made sweets. Low price and high homemade quality.

This is an excellent place. Familial, good food and cheap. I am not an expert in Bresilian cuisine, but it was really good.

If you're Portuguese you probably tried some Brazilian meat-buffet type, where you go and pay a fixed price to an all you can (m)eat evening. I find them usually overpriced and mediocre in service, so not a big fan... Well this restaurant has nothing to do with that!! It is a very nice restaurant, fun and relaxed, really nice service...
