Great service, nice food

Service was excellent, which is what matters the most. Food was good and creative, as any gourmet meal is suppossed to be. You must a reservation to be there, so make sure you give them a call some days in advance (you can make a reservation for dinner starting anytime you want, considering their... read more

Summary: great setting, great service, excellent food and wine, not cheap but perhaps a fair price considering the whole package. My wife and I dined at Aquavit in Feb. 2013. We arrived with some high expectations, having for years read about the restaurant and the chef's (Simon Lau Cederholm) highly-rated creative exploits in various sites and magazines. We were not...

Ok, you go to a restaurant mainly for the food. And the food at Aquavit is simply the best one in Brasilia. Not only the taste, but the colours, the smell, the combination of ingredients. All this in a nice atmosphere, wonderful views. Not to go in a rush. You have the whole night. It is expensive, no doubts, but... More

I really believe that if you are coming to Brasília you have better options than that (not talking about the food, but about the whole experience). You gonna pay A LOT an you gonna have a ambient too fancy for a... More

Inventive culinary. The chef combines Brazilian ingredients with modern technics. The dishes are as beautiful as delicious. The ambient is wonderful and also has an incredible view from Paranoa’s Lake and the city. It’s far from city center and also expensive, but believe, it’s really worth.
