    Nice casual vibe. Delicious traditional brazillian menu. It's quite small but the host is very friendly and made us feel welcome.

    A great, traditional Brazilian menu combined with good coffee, engaging service, reasonable prices and an ambience relaxado, Bossa Nova is Melbourne's own portal to Brazil.
