While more expensive than we would normally do ($200R for 1/2 bottle of wine, two glasses of wine, water, two entrees) we enjoyed the place and the food was good. My wife had the seafood salad, listed just as a salad but plenty of food for dinner. I had the duck served two ways, it was delicious.

Liked : Location and Interior was nice Disliked : we were the only guests and had to wait for the food and drinks forever, even though we saw the food was waiting ready at the counter, we paid 10 R$ for a coffee with milk (!), lazy staff

Had dinner here one evening. Dark, cavernous, pleasant enough. Some live music later (we were too tired to stay). Big video screen. Seafood pasta was nice enough - big quantity.

Spent an hour waiting, when the waitress told us 30 min wait. Did not get service and left with the entire family. The owner came and started a discussion with me, that made me leave!!!!! Will never go back
