Cape Cod Brazilian

Went to Brazilian restaurant in Orleans that opened last spring. Probably the best meal I've had on the Cape. Didn't try the American/fried seafood, but the moqueca and seafood in coconut sauce were excellent. The flan was good as well.

They're open for dinner in the off season, and have a bakery as well. It's BYOB, although they're working on a liquor license. Beer is available across the street at a supermarket.

Definitely worth a try.

    The seafood sounds yummy. Is the name Cape Cod Brazilian? I heard of a place across from Friends with so so reviews. It is called Carla's. I have not been yet but someday.

      Mea culpa. It is, in fact, called Carla's, across the street from Friend's.

      I don't know the cause of the mixed reviews, but:

      -Given that it's Cape Cod (not to mention the Lower/Outer Cape) and not East Cambridge or Marlborough, it's much better than what we've had in the area
      -You might have so so reviews about the American and fried seafood, which they admit isn't what they do best
      -As I mentioned, we loved the seafood dishes, and the pork looked good as well. The desserts are also worth a try

        the issue seemed to be centered around cleanliness..environment..too many amazing choices to take a chance if that makes sense..a comfy surroundings is important to me but I would love to try authentic Brazilian cuisine...
