Dined here as a group of 3, we opted for the 3 course menu. The first starter arrived one hour(!) after we decided on our menu, the dishes that followed also took around 40 minutes between each. This glacial pace alone along with the slow service are enough to make what could be a great dinner boring. As for the... More

I don't understand why this restaurant has 3 stars... The food is ok, but nothing amazing, so it's really not worth what they charge you for. I will not return.

After arriving 25 min late for our reservation due to traffic they welcomed us warmly into the restaurant. We chose the five course tasting menu which was very good. The main course was steak. Note you only have a choice of starter so if the main isn't something you like I could see it being an issue. They had an... More

I had a great dinner experience there with the tasting menu. I had the best lamb ever and the whole dinner experience was superb. We had a chance to sit really close to the kitchen watching chef Roberta on action and that was a plus.

Friends booked this restaurant as they had heard great things about it. For starters the waiter pored the water all over the table after missing the glass. He did not wipe it up until I had to ask him to do so. We were really looking forward to a aperitif and when we asked we were informed they did not... More

Don't like Oro…don't like Dom…not because they aren't great restaurants, but perhaps I just don't have the taste buds to appreciate them. That's undoubtedly why I always buy cheap (inexpensive wine). I am not a foodie. As such, on my second trip to Roberta Sudbrack in 5 years, I was wary of what was to come. It was my wife's... More

we had an utterly disappointing experience at this hyped restaurant: dishes we tried were tasteless starting from a low quality salame and a ridiculous mandioca chip to finish with overly sweet petit mix. Staff was quite full of themselves and not competent: we expressed our negative views on starters and the waiter was laughing.....finally, the restaurant atmosphere is tense and... More

The "experiencia Sudbrack" as they call it on the menu was terrible. It started with a couple of slices of salame, which the maitre recommended us to eat with our hands (really...how else are you supposed to eat it?). We were then served a "chef susprise", which was an incredibly plain chip (yes, one) with a flower and some cocoa... More

We had high expectations for this restaurant given it's position at number 10 in the world's 50 best Latin American restaurants. We took the five course tasting menu and both thought it was expensive for what it was. Whilst the dishes were nicely presented there was no individual dish that stood out. The main course of wagyu beef was good... More
