Had the porgy and it was excellent, grilled lightly seasoned. Started with oysters which appear small but were excellent. Service was attentive and recommendations were helpful. Wine list is ok, a little pricey. Would come

This is just the best steakhouse in Rio. Delicious and tasteful. Their specific sirloin cut is unbelievable and has to be tested by meat fans. Service is great and food amazing.

If you truly enjoy meat, don't hesitate. In a week I went twice. Not exactly cheap but the food is really wonderful and the meat cooked to perfection. The only snag is the eternal air conditioning even when it is only 18°C outside, so do bring something warm as they unfortunately do not provide customers with something to wear! Pity... More

The restaurant itself is very nicely decorated, trendy. However, this is where the experience stopped. The lady who welcomes us told us that as we were 3 minutes after our reservation time we had to wait "at least 10 minutes". Actually the wait was 30 minutes. The food was obviously mainly steak. The steak was poor. It was chewy and... More

This restaurant can be a good restaurant in any big city including NY, Paris, LA, London etc. the T-Bone steak was really one of the best I ate anywhere! About 150-200 real per person for a full meal with wine and it was really worth it! I will go there every time I am in RIo!!!

My it seems like my colleges in Rio like to eat in thus place. I went to the one in Rio Centro for lunch, and the following week we were invited to have dinner in the one in Leblon. As the other one, the options are grilled beefs, with a variety if side diShes that are very good.
