About us

O Boteco was born from Marilia’s passion for the flavors of her homelands: Brazil where she was born and Portugal from which her family comes. It is meant to be (and is!) an intimate, welcoming space in which to feel at home.

What a strange name, what does it mean?

It is the question that is asked of us the most, and we are happy to answer! A boteco is a typical place of the countries of Lusitanian culture: it is not exactly a club and not even a pub, but it plays about the same social role. We can define it as a middle ground between tavern, tavern and neighborhood bar, a familiar place where you find yourself chatting, eating and drinking with friends.
