Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

A one-way ticket to Rio.

Who’s it for? Anyone hankering after a holiday to Brazil.

What should I order? A caïpi-maté (rum, iced mate, lemon juice and thyme syrup).

It’s been ages since we got this excited about a bar. Pass through the doors of Boteco and you might as well be stepping into Ipanema: think exposed brick walls, hanging walls and a distinct Franco-Brazilian vibe.

On the drinks front, the caipirinhas are the highlight – made with either the classic cachaça, rum, vodka or even sake. Other winners include the corcovado, combining cachaça, rosemary-infused honey and coconut water, and the punch carioca (cachaça, lemon, white cocoa cream, mint and prosecco). If you’re peckish, dive into the delightful tapas selection: bean hummus, cassava fries and passion fruit cheesecake.
