Great traditional Portuguese fairs in a sophisticated decor

This restaurant is decorated with antiques and Victorian-style art. You will be treated to generous portion of traditional Portuguese cooking. Located in quiet and upscale part of Leblon.

Our hotel recommended the restaurant to see how and what the locals eat. Stunning decor, very old world. Excellent service with a wide array of appetizers included in the price of our meal. Pricey but the food is excellent.

We saved this restaurant for our last night in Rio. It had been highly recommended and were not disappointed. The menu was only in Portuguese but we did our best ordered and it was amazing. Enjoy it!

This is a highly traditional restaurant in Rio de Janeiro. For many years it has been a meeting point of the high society of the city. However, what we look for is tasty and sophusticated food. One will not find such thing here. It is tasty, well served, but heavy. And, most of all, excessively expensive. The wine list is... More

The food was fairly good, but I wasn't aware there was a R$35 couvert charge per person for lunch. Nor did I appreciate a 10% tip automatically being added on my credit card! Nor having three different telephones with three different ringtones frequently ringing.

Traditional restaurant of portuguese food in Rio. Great food, but overrated for the prices charged. Good selection of wines. Don't expect to be amazed by this place.

Maybe the best restaurant experience I have ever had. The setting is gorgeous, like eating in a museum. Staff could not be better. Food was fantastic. I had the shredded cod, very good. We also had the seafood casserole. Wow. Only minor quibble-they charged for the spread of appetizers that were on the table as soon as we arrived, .... More

Neighborhood Profile
Leblon
In addition to being one of the most upscale neighbourhoods in the city, Leblon is charming, elegant and simple. This posh area has some of the most famous and expensive restaurants in Brazil, along with some of the city’s best nightlife (including some places open all night). One of the best places to visit is the beach, located under the impressive “Morro Dois Irmãos” (Two Brothers Hill). It’s a pleasant place to relax and admire the local beauty.
