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 working hours).

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.
