Brazilian Sensation

is a family-owned restaurant located in Edinburgh, Scotland renowned for its traditional Brazilian cuisine. It was started in 1998 by John Falconer and his Brazilian wife Lucia.

We have been twice nominated in The List magazine's Hit List as one of Edinburgh's best "Round the World" dining establishments. We cook authentic food, served with large portions, offering great value for the money. John and Lucia always take great care to explain the range of dishes to help you make the right choice ... don't forget to try our fabulous homemade tropical fruit ice cream to round off a perfect visit!

At Brazilian Sensation, we offer a unique dining experience well suited for individuals, couples and groups. We can accommodate up to 30 diners and can provide an all inclusive menu for just £20 per person if preferred. For large groups, the restaurant can be reserved exclusively for as little as £600 with food provided. Come and enjoy a wonderful evening with friends in a relaxing atmosphere with delicious Brazilian cuisine!
