Queens >Malagueta Restaurant Inc
“Service good, the chef is personable, deco and ambience is really good too!”
“(Not back to back, and with time to enjoy our wine that was served before.)”
“Our other choices were the Lombo de Porco (below, left), sauteed pork tenderloin in a tasty dill sauce, accompanied by the best mashed potatoes this side of Grandma's Thanksgiving, and the popular Moqueca de Camar?”
“After the meal, despite having absolutely no room left, I was excited to order the fried banana, which actually was not on the menu.”
“My new favorite restaurant in Astoria.”
“The staff courteous and the prices were reasonable.”
“From outside it doesn't look special and it is in an area with not many restaurants, but they have very good food and reasonable prices.”
“Very dry for latin culture restaurant, poor service and very slow.”
Exellent food! A must try. Recently had dinner at Malagueta after several failed attempts. The food was great and the prices are very good. Simply tastefully decorated with a definite Brazilian vibe. Very good service! We ordered appetizers that were served in a perfectly timed sequence with our entrees. (Not back to back, and with time to enjoy our wine that was served before.) The menu has traditional Brazilian dishes with some continental choices as well. I can't wait to go back!
My new favorite restaurant in Astoria.. Went for a date last week to Malagueta, and although I was initially hesitant to dine there, I'm delighted at what an excellent restaurant it turned out to be. The place was empty, but I can't understand why (other than the location, I suppose). The food was mouth-watering, and the by far the finest I've had in Astoria (and I've done my field work). Since I left, I haven't stopped talking about it. The calamari appetizer was probably the best I've ever had. I ordered the quail, which came with crispy spinach (crazy sensation, but absolutely delicious). My date had the chicken with prosciutto and fontina cheese - he's not so daring with his food choices (it was hard enough to get him to try Brazilian), and even he was over the moon with the meal. Trying something new definitely paid off. I'm in love. We're definitely going back.
Very good food for the price. From outside it doesn't look special and it is in an area with not many restaurants, but they have very good food and reasonable prices. The flan is highly recommended.
Treasure In Queens.
With Brazilian cuisine you usually expect a predictable menu but Malagueta was different in the variety and creativity in its menu.
The use of spices and ingredients was creative, different and simply delicious. I am not a fish fan but even the pollock I tried was to die for! Everything was in perfect portions and very satisfying. The presentation of the food was very french style and makes you feel as though you are at a fancy restaurant. And honestly, the food at Malagueta was better than most over-priced, fancy restaurants Ihave been to.
I highly recommend Malagueta if you are in the mood for a wonderful and different meal. And the fact that it is tucked away in Astoria Queens is a plus as it keeps away those irritating "too good for Queens" types out.
Great find. This restaurant is tucked away on a side street. I don't go to a lot of Brazilian restaurants, but I do eat a lot, and this is good food. Get the sausage and yuca appetizer, and then go for the steak. It's really good. I finished with a flan made of coconut milk and the price was right. Go, and eat. Your stomach and your wallet will thank you.
A must try!. This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend and I'm glad he did, otherwise I would never have known about this little treasure in Astoria. Being to other Brailian restaurants in the past, I had expected the menu to consist of primarily steak, but it was well varied. The food is excellent. The staff courteous and the prices were reasonable. I will definitely go again.
food is better than the girls. I just came back from vacation in Brazil and the food was actually better in Malagueta. The only downside is that you wont see girls dresses like they do in brazil walking down the sidewalk in Astoria. But, if you already have a girl, you wont have this problem cause youll probraly bring her to the restaurant. Actually, you can pick up a Brazilian girl at the restaurant while your eating.
