This is a very good restaurant for a business lunch as the interior is not too large and relatively quiet. The wood panels wall remind me of an older classic restaurant setting. The food is very good and some items are available in two person portions. The service is very attentive.

This restaurant is a very traditional one in the city. It has more than 120 years old. The speciality is sea food and you can taste real brazilian food there, but the cost-benefit is not good. The restaurant is a little expensive for what it offer, specially regarding the beverages.
