Brazilian
In Brazil, “Boteco” is the friendly neighbourhood bar with lively music and atmosphere...and that’s exactly where our inspiration comes from, the traditional botecos of Rio de Janeiro. You can enjoy a refreshing Caipirinha – our signature drink and an essential part of any Brazilian celebration – or sample the infamous 'urban' menu of the streets from our delicious tapas menu. When you visit Boteco, you are immediately reminded of the things that make Brazil so attractive: we’re colourful, vibrant, fresh and exotic! Scotland may be far away from Copacabana beach, but at Boteco you can get a taste of Brazil even on the rainy days! We're open 7 nights a week, till 3AM. A funky pub & restaurant offering a truly relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere. Featuring live music, DJs and dancing with tropical cocktails available every night. Our eclectic menu is guaranteed to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters with our vast array of tapas, traditional dishes and international cuisine.

    We arrived at 1900 - we still hadn’t been served any food (not even bread and nibbles) by 2020 - and were told our food would possibly be ready in a further 10-15 minutes. We pointed out how abysmal the service and restaurant was - and left for a really excellent meal at Gaucho’s in Glasgow - which luckily had a free table on Valentines night. The man on the table next to us in this awful restaurant sent his steak back twice as it was inedible! A woman told us she had been waiting with her partner for longer than us for food… way to ruin Valentine’s night for all! Do NOT go here EVER!!!!!!!!

    We were able to book a table easily esp for a busy weekend night which is good. The staff were welcoming; they made a table ready for us relatively quickly, the meal was prepared to perfect temperature and didn’t take too long to come out. One thing I wasn’t overly keen on was the music being too loud; the volume was more akin to a nightclub instead of a restaurant, making us shout at the top our voices just to have a conversation over dinner.

    Not really a great experience to be honest, we got there and then a girl came and took us to our table. Within 5 mins she came back and asked us if we were ready to order, but never gave us the drinks menu or asked if we wanted to order drinks so we waited for someone to appear, then spoke to another girl and asked if we could order some drinks she said that she was going to get the girl that was dealing with us but she never came, went to the bar and ordered a few drinks, dinner took too long to arrive but we didn't complain as we expected it to be busy, we had our meals which it was good, then before we even finished eating our meals someone came and started to take the plates away we didn't like that to be honest. Then when all the plates got taken away we never got offered the desert menu or asked if we wanted more drinks. The girl brought us the bill ( we had to split between between the 3 of us) when looking at the bill it was confusing as some stuff had been put on the bill and then taken off ie ..caipirinhas but we had ordered it at the bar, she was questioning abit about the total of my bill cos it was exactly the same price as the had some sort of deal drink and tapas for £14.95 but she didn't realise that they only had vegan pizza as an alternative left and I just ordered sides for myself. Overall we felt rushed towards the end, and didn't even get a thanks so we left the restaurant and went next door.

    Was expecting a more Brazilian atmosphere, all the staff members we interacted with didn’t speak Portuguese, the live music was not Brazilian either. It’s a nice spot and the food was good.

    Was fun atmosphere initially and excellent service. Unfortunately I food wasn't very good. Vegetables weren't good quality. For a tomato salad you would think good quality tomatoes would be used. These were some of the worst I have had in years.

    2 meals were ordered. 1st meal arrived and after 20mins second meal had still not appeared. Offered free drinks, we refused just wanted the bill. They said they would organise a discount. There was no discount. The meal we had was ok. Not terrible by any means but just meh. Drinks we're good. Servers we're acceptable (appreciate only so much they can do). We won't be back.

    After some apparent confusion about where our table was, we were seated and had a drinks order taken promptly. I ordered 3 small plates and my husband had a main course. The food was lovely and the staff were very helpful and chatty. First time eating here and will definitely be back.

    This is a rather dingy bar rather than a restaurant. The food was a sad reflection of the depth and elegance of Brazilian cuisine and was overpriced for the small portion sizes of what was served. Desert was not even a consideration and we left and went to another restaurant mutually agreeing that not only was this the worst restaurant experience we have had but that we would not be returning. To be avoided!

    Service was fast and good but my cocktail came warm and I don’t think there is anything worse than a warm mojito. The chicken said pieces but they came and were on the bone which should’ve said that on the menu if that’s what it was and the food was just poor if I’m honest, won’t be in any rush back

    We enjoy the food usually have chorizo as a starter but is off the menu.service was ok ambient a bit quiet maybe because it was Sunday, the only thing bad was that after we finish where told twice to pay the bill beacause the restaurant side was closing felt rushed out.will be back at the weekend to see the difference on the ambiente.

    When we came in on a busy Saturday night the emphasis was on the football game rather than the restaurant. The food was nice but we couldn’t hear each other speak over the music and then football. Hurried out as soon as the main course was eaten because you know, football..:

    Brilliant service. I booked a table for my husband’s birthday, not realising there was a big football game on and the staff were excellent when it came to ensuring we could access the restaurant at such a busy time. Food was amazing. Music was fab! Love the vibe! Cocktails were really delicious! Can’t wait to come back for more tapas!
