Nice restaurant near the square. Was busy when we popped in for lunch. Our waiter was a lovely chap who spoke english but the food was generally poor and overpriced. Had chicken and pasta with pesto.

Very expensive for what you get here considering the alternatives about. Reasonable moqueca for two with rice but heavily tomato based and not worth the 140 reais. Very dark, service ok, nice live music but save some cash and go somewhere cheaper for better food.

We asked our waiter about the risotto (my husband had in his plate an... More

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

We had one fish and one meat dish, both OK. Around us almost everybody was having pizzas. I found out that there is a second, separate,... More
