Really cool neigbourhood bar. Very relaxed with friendly service. They also serve simple food, we chose their bestseller, a beef sandwich with fries on the side. Both tasted really good and were moderately priced. They also have a good selection of different beers so this...More

Easy-going and funky corner bar with colorful, second hand interior design. A short menu providing excellent finger food. Also vegan portions.

I had a sandwich that was actually more like a burger. It was tasty, greasy and fresh - at the same time. I liked it. My daughter also had fried potatoes and some guacamole mayonnaise, very good. Definitely I want to go to Favela again.

I had a very nice spicy fish soup. I've never been to Brazil so I can't vouch for its authenticity, but it was nice. Also, a good range of craft beers and knowledgeable staff. What's not to like?

Visited briefly for short dinner. I had jalapeño poppers (house made) and lamb roll. The food was really nice with friendly service. Can highly recommend both dishes. Restaurant is pretty popular so it is better go early.

A cosy place, good food with decent prices, a jazz club night once a month with really good music. Really nice atmosphere, a decent list of beers if you are interested.

Favela calls itself a fun dining place, and it is kinda true. Orders are taken from the bar counter, and the atmosphere is really laid-back and relaxed. However, the food is made with care and the flavours are well-thought. Price point is affordable. The place...More

Favela is a very nice and cozy bar where locals frequent. The food is great, my favorite is the ox bread.
