Fodor's Review

Located by João Zelante Square in what was once a department store, Café Boteco incorporates elements of the traditional Brazilian boteco (dive bar) in some of its recipes and decor, but the comparisons end there: smartly dressed, friendly waiters serve excellent picanha (rump steak) and costelinha com polenta (pork ribs with polenta chips), as well as salad and pasta dishes with a local twist. Draft lager and a range of local beers are available. On weekends, sit outside to hear bands playing in the square. The owners also run a small shop next door selling souvenirs, fine wines, and cold cuts.
