When you first walk in.. it seems very relaxed but they sat us in the dinning area where everyone was having wine and water.. we requested a beer and it was as if we didn't fit in. As for the food itself.. it was just okay. I had the steak and bacon with a huge pile of rice and my... More

We have been dining here since they opened. Their soups are always good - especially the hearts of palm. The braised Chicken on Fridays is delicious. The salpicao is a must try. Do not forget the cheese bread.

I'd heard of Cafe Bossa Nova before, but I've never been. This past Christmas my neighbors gave me and my family a gift card to CBN. I was so ecstatic and couldn't wait to try it out! Upon arrival I was already liking the vibes of the location. When I entered the packed restaurant I was immediately seated and it... More

My friend and I sat at the bar because the restaurant was full. I ordered the special and it was absolutely amazing (can't remember exactly what it was). The banana bread pudding was great. Can't wait to go again!

Great spot for lunch. Service is rather quick. They have wonderful salads and soups along with fish dishes. The salmon kale brussel sprout salad is one of my favorites.

When we want to go some place special in Little Rock, this is one the restaurants we choose. My husband is a vegetarian and I eat vegan as much as possible. Since my last review, Cafe Bossa Nova has increased its already good vegetarian offerings. They now have multiple dishes that are vegetarian and several that are either vegan or... More

so.good. I'll take credit for their having a "flight"of soup on the menu...they are always so good I kept complaining I couldn't pick just one. If you are trying to be good, you can do it here with great flavor. If you don't care about being good, you can do it here too. Visit the bakery/coffee shop next door, owned... More

I'm afraid I may have suffered from hearing such amazing things about this place that when I finally ate dinner there, it didn't meet my expectations. There was nothing bad about what I ate, it just didn't have the flavors I was expecting thus making it quite dull. This goes for the appetizer, meal, and dessert (cheese bread, salmon with... More

I took my husband there for lunch as he'd never been before. He was so excited about the yuca that we had an appetizer then came the meal. I had a sandwich and he had a rather healthy portioned lunch of grilled chicken breast, black beans and rice then a nice dessert. Everything was wonderful. I highly recommend this place... More

My husband and I love going here. It's small, intimate, has good food, pleasant service and fair prices. We sometimes go with a larger group and either way it is a very nice experience.
