The basket of bread is 18 reals and it is not included with any meals. The salad is 25 reals for some pieces of goat cheese and greens the size of which is really a side salad in the US.

The first thing you notice about this charming restaurant is its decor - romantic and quaint. The restaurant is not very big, but a good size. The food was nicely and beautifully presented. I ordered the funghi risotto which turned out to be rather pleasant (though I would have preferred a bit more salt). I remember my husband's lamb chops... More

First of all, the place is unique. We feel as if in another century. The food was a chapter apart. The dish I ordered was very good. Delicious and well-presented. On the other hand the food my partner ordered was a bit disappointing. Dessert was innovative. All in all, it was a good dinner. I recommend it.

Nice location in a historical building (Hotel Solar do Império) on the historical district of Petrópolis. Varied cuisine, but with a Brazilian and Portuguese accent. Excellent service.

Best restaurant at Petrópolis! Great food in a historical building fully restored. Inside Solar do Impėrio, the best hotel in the city. No need to be a guest, though. Unmissable experience for dinner. They also offer afternoon tea and lunch. I tried the "duck duo with manioc trio", followed by the trio of Portuguese style desserts. An imperial meal!
