About

Fun-loving Camden has just got its own slice of the exotic Amazon in the shape of Made in Brasil Boteco - a new neighbourhood cachaçaria bar on Chalk Farm Road.
Centred on a passion for all things Brasilian, Made in Brasil Boteco is a bohemian, favela-style bar in the heart of North London. Step into this energetic space and be instantly transported to the vibrant carnivals of Rio or the friendly, old-style botecos (bars) of Sao Paulo and Salvador. The national spirit of Brasil is Cachaça, a traditional spirit distilled from sugar cane juice which has a sweet and explosive flavour. In fact, the bar boasts the largest selection of cachaças in the UK with over 100 to choose from.
The head chef Clau Gloria D Souza from Porto Seguro in the Brazilian state of Bahia has brought the taste of her homeland to a menu of Petiscos (Brazilian tapas) to be nibbled on throughout the evening.
Made in Brasil Boteco is already becoming a bohemian hub of South American culture.

Terrible terrible experience. STAY AWAY!

Booked for a table of 8 people 3 weeks in advance. A week prior to the booking a member of the team called me to say Brazil would likely be playing that evening in the World Cup so do we mind coming in earlier. I obliged of course and was assured we could still have our table and the full menu would be available to our group.

Upon arrival at the restaurant we were told each of us would need to pay £10.00 entry. We informed them that we'd actually booked a table for dinner 3 weeks prior and were told to still pay £10.00 entry - none of which would come off the bill but would just be an entrance fee. We requested to see a manager.

Well, the manager that came to see us has to be the most obnoxious rude manager of any restaurant our group has been to. Did not care at all that we'd booked a table - his eyes saw that Brazilian football fans would flock there and pay £10.00 entry, so our dinner plans didn't matter. We asked why nobody called to inform us of this door charge - they didn't make plans to call anyway. We asked if Brazil weren't playing, would be paying to get in for our dinner reservation - the answer was no.

A group of 8 were then without any dinner reservation in Camden Town on a Friday night with World Cup Football on everywhere.

The attitude of the manager was pitiful and there is no point in even calling the restaurant to complain as they obviously do not care. There were money signs in their eyes when Brazil were scheduled to play that evening without a care for anybody else.

Thank the lord for Belgo - The Belgian Restaurant just down the road who welcomed our group in with open arms, had a fantastic menu and accommodated us to celebrate throughout the football and long into the evening.

Made In For Brazil Boteco - Made To Let You Down! Horrendous.

I don't recommend Made in Brazil Boteco. Despite good, the food is slightly overpriced so that it doesn't consist of a good deal. But my poor review is more related to the service. Waiters and waitresses were rude and this is the main reason why I will not return to the restaurant.

I booked a table to watch the Brazilian football match. Right after having confirmed the booking, I called the restaurant to double check and ask for a few extra details. The person who answered the phone had no information and asked me to call later. I did - again, the same person answered and told me the manager was late. When I finally got to talk to the manager (one hour and a half before my booking), I was told: there would be no entry fees; and our table would be in front of the TV.

Yes, there was a TV. But with a terrible delay between sound and image that prevented us from properly watching the match. Staff was not sympathetic to our (and the other customers'!) issues. Additionally, they charged all my late friends a 10-pound entry free (cash-only at the door!) -- apparently, it was the day's policy to charge entries after 5pm. Surprisingly, this was not mentioned to me when I specifically asked the manager (by phone) whether there would be any entry fees. When I tried to talk (in-person) to the staff, they were really rude and helpless.

Food was very nice, same as atmosphere but staff was not organised, after waiting around 20 minutes for getting noticed (even though I was obviously waiting to be served) they didn't have my reservation in their calendar, I was waiting 15 minutes for bill and some of them (female part of team ) were a bit grumpy (when I wanted to go out the restaurant to make phone call they were strongly against it like I would want to run away or something). I also felt like I'm being rushed to finish my meal and go.

We had a great time, the staff was super friendly, there was some confusion with our booking from Open Table so perhaps just ring through the day before to make sure that the booking platform has correctly notified the venue - This is an issue with Open Table not the restaurant who were super accommodating.

Very impressed with the place. Grabbed dinner and drinks there before seeing a performance at the Roundhouse. Food was great, good menu range and they were great with dietary requirements some in our party had. There was funky music in the bar area, but the restaurant part wasn’t loud. It was also very good value for London. Would definitely recommend.

At first we were seated downstairs which was empty & cold. Not what I had in mind & nothing like the vibrant, buzzing atmosphere upstairs. To their credit, once I mentioned it they made an effort to find us space upstairs & even moved a plant to create more space. From that point on great food, great cocktails, great vibe, great night!

At first they couldn’t find my reservation, we were put on a table in the end that was cramped for 5 people!
Food and drinks were ok, but expensive for the size of the portions, especially the rump steak!
Because we had kids with us we were told we had to leave at 9 as it then turned into a night club

Restaurant atmosphere was decent. Looked clean, with Brazilian decorations and apt music. Staff were generally friendly and attentive. Wine list was sufficient and bar looked well stocked. Food however was a let down. Stodgy dishes with pretty much no greenery. Did not feel fresh in anyway. Probably will not be revisiting.

We came here for my mums fiftieth birthday, and had a wonderful time. The Brazilian tapas was amazing - particularly the mixed fried seafood, and the feijoada cake. We had two rounds! Service was so friendly and attentive, they put banners up for us and let us bring cakes and balloons. One word of warning - the live band on Saturday was atmospheric but a little bit loud when you're dining, so only for those who enjoy Latin music.
