By Monfort F.

Although I don't really recommend the restaurant, Floripa is the perfect place for a great Saturday night out. The music is great (they've got a real crazy french DJ), the cocktails are delicious, the price is acceptable, the staff is very friendly and the decoration is beautiful. I really love it there.

The menu is not the same in the web that the one they give you when you're going to order. If you get there after 9, even though you have a booking and you are going to have dinner, you are charged with 5 extra pound to go into. The waitress was nice but she sat down in our table to write down our order in a paper napkin! Food very normal, nothing extraordinary and not enough portions. The cocktails are from miles away the best of Floripa. From our point of view It was not a good restaurant, it's a pretentious club. Just kind of a wannabe!

A hip little east London haunt tucked away on Great Eastern Street, Floripa is a vibrant Shoreditch bar and restaurant serving up wholesome Brazilian cuisine and brilliant British tunes. A fusion of colour and cultures, Floripa is the nick-name of Florianópolis – a small Balearic style city-island off the coast of Brazil. Inside, the restaurant is decorated with exotic frescoes, potted palms, vintage tiles, eclectic furniture and plenty of candles, and the menu is filled with Brazilian staples. We love the Afro-Brazil Muququita, locally sourced Hand of God style steaks, and hearty feijoada. Add a list of cocktails from Ipanema and Florianapolis and you have a freeform feast that will impress the hungriest hipsters. Great for birthdays, office drinks, dates and cocktail parties – Floripa is a little off-the-beaten-track Shoreditch gem

Floripa what a place!!!!!I went for my birthday last week with a big group of friends; the service was fast with a friendly manner with it. The was chilled and funky that we all felt at easy that everything was in hand and that we were going to be looked after well the whole night. We had great food and cocktails that complements every mouthful. Felling stuffed with good food and drink the party did not stop there the floor was cleared of the tables as the DJ hit the decks and I danced my socks off to what can only be said as a great mix of music. We will all be going back soon as it’s well worth going!!!!

Named after a paradise city in Brazil, this Brazillian-themed bar gives a funky twist to the Shoreditch scene.

The Venue
Situated close to the busy Old Street roundabout, this Brazilian restaurant-cum-bar has taken up a great address on the former site of Favela Chic. With an attractive leafy exterior and an interior full of plants, painted fruits on the walls, exposed brickwork, patterned wallpaper and fabric-covered chairs, not to mention the array of Brazilian-themed items over the door and the giant red, yellow and blue Angel of Floripa hanging from the ceiling, it's like a ray of sunshine among the characterless venues starting to take over the area. Floripa manages to be Brazillian in a non-gimmicky way and nicely works this with a cool East End vibe.

The Atmosphere
While the venue attracts a small sprinkling of so-called hipsters (most have gone in search of cooler places up the road in Dalston), it mostly draws in people who work in the nearby offices during the week and those who've come in to London for a big night out from outside of London at the weekend. The mood varies a lot and it can change drastically during the night, too, when it transforms from more of a restaurant (earlier on) to a live music bar (later on).

The Music
There are different DJs every night of the week. Expect to hear everything from Brazilian funk to hip hop, samba beats and blues – certainly not the commercial sounds that frequent some of the other venues nearby.

The Food
Floripa serves Brazilian-style petiscos (small plates) and salgados (snacks), with a menu that changes with the seasons and food that's freshly cooked. These include the delicious – and very Brazilian – pao de queijo (cheesy bread, £3.50), which comes in a portion of five small buns with flavourful moist centres; a very refreshing and tasty avocado and baby-gem salad (£5.50); and a delightful fava bean dip (£4.50) that comes with baby gem lettuce and fresh pitta that's perfect for dunking in it.

Stand-out dishes are, however, the pan-roasted sea bass (£7), which tears away nicely before the subtle sweet flavours of the white fish melt in your mouth and the super-scrumptious chicken thigh slow cooked in a rich-tasting, yet perfectly creamy and gently spiced coconut and saffron sauce (£6.50). The dessert menu (£5-£6) includes a lime sorbet with muddled fruits and a hint of tequila (£4.50), which is fabulous if you want something light yet satisfyingly sweet after your meal. Served in a cocktail glass, its zesty flavours really cleanse your palate.

The Drink
Wine starts at £16.50 for a bottle/£5 a glass of house merlot or sauvignon blanc, or £32 for Brazilian fizz (Miolo Millesime). The merlot is easy to drink and goes with many dishes. If you're after a beer, the venue serves Brahama (of course), as well as a small selection of standard brands. Expect to pay around £4 a bottle. Where the venue excels, however, is with its cocktails. The signature drink – Fire Of Floripa (£7.50) – is especially impressive. Made with cachaca, home-made pomegranate syrup and a squeeze of fresh lime and topped with tempero de baiano (spice mix), it arrives at the table flaming and its sharp and strong flavours really pack a punch.

The Last Word
Lively, fun and funky, Floripa has the prices you can expect to pay in the 'ditch these days, but its authentic character makes it a great addition to the area.
