The entrance is paved with old canon balls, and the building houses different cultural rooms. Childrens library, a theatre stage, a concert hall, a cinema, etc, etc. There is a restaurant in the courtyard with affordable and good food,... More

It is very family friendly, the food is excellent, and the crafts are very interesting. There are many families with their children playing on the grassy area in the center of... More

In the centre are tables and chairs and a small stage where a local singer/guitar player provided great background music. The whole package works really well for a relaxed... More

Obviously this review of mine is very personal, I've spent 6 months in Cuiabá, and I used to go here lots of times. This is a great place to listen to live music, to try local food to meet the local people, to have a beer, they even have a theater over there. Amazing place to be on a hot... More

Great place, great varanda. The food isnt so good, but it is a perfect place to have a beer by the end of your day. Normally they have live music, not so good but not bad at all. On thursdays they have a great variety of local food, worth a try.
