My husband wanted a good steak and we were recommended to this restaurant by our hotel concierge. The maitre d' was just excellent. He recommended the best steak they had and subtly suggested twice that one each would be too much. At first my husband didn't think it through but when he had taken the order the penny ( or... More

The matrie dame, waiter and manger all made us feel very welcome. The decor was stunning and clientele classy. We enjoyed the signature steaks and the recommended wine was beautiful. We preferred this experience to both Sushi Leblon and Tereze at Santa Teresa Hotel.

The decor is the first noticeable impressive trait followed by the excellent menu. This neighborhood sophisticatedly inclined trattoria deserves a try. It may not be the typical affordable local eatery, but does well deserve to charge what they do. The wine list is extensive (and good, of course) and the food is remarkable.

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

The restaurant is worth visiting just for the beautiful architecture. I love the walls and floors and especially the rest rooms next to the wine cellar. The steaks were good but not exceptional. The side dishes were a little disappointing. But I will be back just to enjoy the classy ambience.

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
