We went there since we were told it was one of the best restaurants in town. It is not. Food was standard, not much tasty. The maittre suggested a meat cut and promoted it as the best in the region; for brazilian style it was substandard. Very limited wine list. Maybe it would be adequate for a standard business meal.

Ate here on our last night based on reviews and high rating. As others have said it's a big place and was only a few tables taken from 8-10pm. Steak was nice but nothing special - had sirloin with mushrooms and it wasn't as tender as I expected, a little tough and stringy in places, like different cuts all in... More

The meat had a Strange structure, like it came out of the deep freeze. Ambience is good. Its a big place. I wouldn't come back a second time.

Best place to eat in Foz. 8 of us went there tonight and it was perfect, most of us ordered steaks and they cooked them perfectly and they were huge. We drank loads and even got a free desert from the chef. The waiter spoke good English and was very helpful and really friendly which is always good. As it's... More

Not what I requested or expectd. Dry and overdone probably frozen filet mignon of which I ate half,sauted.notreally...potatoes and the vegtables cooked in butter did not appear. Instead there was one of those fluted. Cukes, peeled in a spiral, inedible. Good? The by the kilo antipasti assortment! BRAVI! No cooking required.

It is very sophisticated which makes it stand out like a sore thumb in Foz (one of the world's worst tourist destinations). Great selection of dishes. The lunchtime buffet is also very good.

I chose the restaurant for dinner. I asked the waiter for a suggestion and they told me to try their beef (bife). I took the "Bife de Chorizo grelhado ao Chimichurri". The beef was absolutely gorgeous. The restaurant is not cheap, especially compared to the average cost of a restaurant in Brazil. However the dinner was great. Unfortunately, the majority... More

The food here was very good. The menu was extensive but they were happy to cook us something simpler (to their dismay I just wanted chicken, beans & rice!) The staff, especially Walter, were very friendly and were happy to tell us about the area. Not all of them spoke English but there was an English menu. The restaurant itself... More

Place is clean and new, staff is very nice. It's not a per kilo or churrascarria place, so you need to know what you want - file mignon or sirloin, but if you know - this is great. Pricing is at abequate level, R$45 for steaks and R$4-5 for beverages like natural juces. Cachaca is free (!), with pretty good... More
