London’s best Brazilian restaurant, as voted for by Brazilians…

With Rio Carnival just around the corner, we think it’s a great time to check out London’s Brazilian restos by asking London-based Brazilans “where shall we head?” in our global survey..

Taking almost a quarter of the votes with 22% was Rodizio Rico

“It’s relatively close to the “home” equivalents – not the case for restaurantes of other types of Brazilian food” - “The Brazilian barbecue (rodizio) and traditional sides”

Rodizio Preto came a close second with 16%, people voted for the restaurant due to…

“Dish and price” - “Ambience and food”

Barraco Cafe followed closely behind with 14% of votes:

“Food tastes very similar to the ones we have in Brazil” - “The atmosphere and the foods remind me of Rio de Janeiro, my hometown. The food is not sophisticated but it is good”

Guanabara Restaurant was also popular with 11% of votes

“We go for the Brazilian atmosphere and music, especially during Carnaval! And the food there is good and Brazilian, but again a club/bar”

Also recommended by Brazilians was:

Favela Chic“Has some nice dishes, but it’s far and it’s more of a club/bar”

Floripa“Food and music – It´s a relly nice place to invite friends, as they play good music, serve delicious food and people are very friendly”

Made in BrazilAmbiance, caipirinhas and live music”

Raizes - A stall in duke of York square that sells feijoada

Café Brazil“But it is just when you are desperate to eat feijoada….Again nothing that represents our country decently…”

Cafe Rio: “It is a simple place with home made food. It is special because you feel you are in Brazil”

Canelafor homemade food”


But there’s sometimes no substitute for a home cooked meal:

One respondent said: “My house. London does not have a truly good Brazilian restaurant, so I cook at home. There are two good options (not awesome though): 1) Guanabara (they have very good snacks but hot dishes are only ok); 2) there is a very small Brazilian restaurant close to Bayswater station, it is really small, the owners only speak Portuguese, I do not even know the restaurant name. It is located inside a shopping mall close by Bayswater station.”

And another all always make a homemade meal when they miss home: ”There isn’t one, we will cook something ourselves….the dish!! Feijoada, churrasco, pao de queijo, coxinha…
