The food here was great. We had a tasting menu and got 5 diished. The sizes of the dishes were big enough to get you full. The best dish I had was duck with foie gras and also the shrimp risotto. The onlybthing that dissapointed me a little was the creme brulee as it just tasted okay. The texture was... More

Brazil meets Europe. A unique experience of aromas, flavors and textures. Sometimes a bit strange but still unexpected food pairing. If you are in Rio, don't forget to try this Cuisine.

One of the best food I have ever tried... Excellent service, great wines and food, dessert... Location is great, it is a small restaurant and very exclusive. Prices are high but not much more than prices of average great restaurants around... I ate a shrimp risotto that was delicious! Just be prepared to spend around 200 dollars per person for... More

I read that this restaurant was Franzilian, a fusion between french and brazilian and it´s completely true. You can choose a la carte or a tasting menu of 3 or 5 courses. Choosing 5 courses made a fantastic dinner, since each course was really a taste, a small portion. Not only the flavour was delicious, also the presentation of each... More

We had a great meal here. The ravioli starter was amazing as we all the mains we ordered. They were also very accommodating for the vegetarian we had on our table. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Rio

We were anxious to know this restaurant. You have to make reservations, it's always full. Well, we went there on a rainy friday night (I suppose that's why we found the places). Small place. About 10 tables. Nicely decorated, but not exceptional. We sat, they brought us a rustic bread, and some "biscoitos globo", typical salty biscuits ambulants sell in... More

I booked this restaurant as an end of holiday treat. It had been reviewed favorably in a couple of UK Sunday magazines. I actually booked in Italian as the woman takinb the booking did not speak English but there was enough of a similarity to Portuguese and iIalian to understand what i wanted! The Drive to the restaurant was fraught... More
