I love this place! Vintage decoration, has a incredible lounge where you can wait for a table - it's usually full, or even eat a bit. The Comfort food of chef Roberta Ciasca is incomparable! The plates are very well served for an individual and the drinks are all delicious, even the virgin ones! It's a MUST go!

My hotel was in Botafogo, this restaurant was nearby. The restaurant had English menus, which was a real help. I ordered a dish which had a pork and basmati rice, if you're having trouble choosing from a very colourful menu then I recommend this dish. But I will always remember a non-alcoholic drink called Leia, order it and you won't... More

Good food, eclectic menu and nice staff! Arsty environment with tropical drinks to entice the experience. I recommend it!

I am a regular at this place. I guess that says it all. Since it has opened it has attracted different crowds and nowadays I see a lot of foreign tourists, mostly the "cool youth" type. Lots of noisy european kids which, honestly, kills the mood of the place. That is why I always get a table on the outside... More

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!
