If you are in Rio and walking around downtown, you must stop at this place. The old building where it stands is just amazing. Food and desert are also a temptation. You won't regret.

Beyond the marvellous meals you may have the experience to have a lunch at a art nouveau place from the 19 th century. On the weeks you may listen a pianist in this wonderful place where the chicken croquette is divine!!!
