A beautiful and nicely executed deco to have a dinner. We asked for mignon with gnochi and ravioli with mushrooms and both were tastefull and generous portions. It is not a cheap restaurant but the exclusivity of having only 16 tables worth the price.

It's a lovely place to it and took us a while to find (its a small building next to a Tyre place). The staff were very professional and its a small place so if you arrive at a busy time you might have to wait for a table to become free..... it will be worth the wait. It's a bit... More

We were staying in Botofogo - and finding restaurants around there was not too easy. We spotted this as we walked to Copacabana and we later looked it up - the Food was fantastic, the restaurant was clean, staff friendly , wine perfect. Variety was excellent and unlike other restaurants - the portions were just nice - not too big.... More

Service, food, ambience were all superb. Surrounded by 50's and 60's colorful antique furniture, we had the prix fixe 5 course dinner served to us by Terena, who was super personable and dedicated to explaining the chef's vision to us with surprisingly good English skills. At 110 Reals per person, it was a steal for a gourmet meal! To make... More

This used to be one of the very best places in Rio. Maybe because of this success, or the opening of new places by the same chef, have turned this restaurant into a very ordinary place... And since it's sort of the middle of nowhere, better head for other options!

A business associate recommended this tucked-away restaurant....and I am glad she did. To begin the decor is both antique, retro and well thought out. I tried the caipivodka to start my visit, and it was great. The food is elegantly and properly prepared, and the service was very good. I would recommend trying this restaurant in Rio. It will bedinitely... More

Just like most restaurants in Rio, the only vegetarian option is: pasta and salad! They had previously an exquisite vegetarian dish with pumpkins but they've changed according to the brazilian commercial idea of vegetarianism: "Give them salad and carbohydrate (cheap to make, easy to profit!)! Sad!

This is a funky little restaurant hidden away in a random neighbourhood of Rio. It is worth the trip though. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and the service was very quick and friendly. The food was SO good and we really enjoyed all 3 courses. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Roberta Ciasca´s first venue offers up an exciting dinning experience. The food is simple yet inovative, one could say it´s good and honest comfort food. Don´t miss out on the deserts, specially the dulce de leite churros. The dinning area is clad in retro-vintage furniture giving the space a nice laid back feel. Worth a visit on your next trip...
