A guest in our hotel recommended us to go here and we are really glad we went! The service was excellent, super friendly, the food was super delicious (Brazilian cheese, home made pasta,... More

Everything was really perfect!Tthe night view is breathtaking but it was not only that. Our waiter was very helpfull. The wine he indicated matched perfectly with our food choices. Our food was exotic for our taste but very tasty. We surely wil come back.

First time goers, on a special night (Brazilian Valentine's Day - June 12th). We were booked a table at 10 pm. After about 40 minutes (queueing up to park and to gain access to the restaurant), we were accommodated at one of the tables in the middle of the room. The restaurant was packed and that's why they lost track... More

views are good, they offer tango songs but the chef seems to be lost in a time warp somewhere around the 80's. If you have an academic interest on how meals were prepared back then, this is the place to go.

The first time we went there (and for Brazilian standards we were relatively early), they were fully booked, so I really recommend a reservation. The next day we came back and it was perfect right from the beginning. The food was fresh and delicious and since I am allergic to gluten, they prepared - without any hazzle - a special... More

We ended up at that restaurant on a Friday night with no reservation and they did everything to accommodate us. The service is slow (but then again we are in Brazil...) but the wait is worth it. The food is great, the view is superb, the atmosphere is nice and the poem recital is magical. They had a local Bossa-Nova... More

It's a special place owned and managed by an Argentinean couple that adopted Floripa as their new home. Atmosphere and architecture are unique and service is well done. Ms. Lorenzo takes care of guests personally, as well as her daughter. Dishes are delicious and well served. Ask for the ones that takes the restaurant name - they are the best!... More

the setting is wonderful: a wooded hill top with sweeping views of the city. service is attentive and discreet, and the menu packed with a selection of interesting dishes, some of which go well beyond the traditional. food is top notch, all three of us had something truly delicious. little homage to the island in the form of a sung...

Many friends told me how great was this restaurant's food so I decided to check it out and I don't think I will ever feel like going back there. There's nothing wrong with the restaurant or it's food, but at the same time, there's nothing special about it, even though I have to agree that some dishes can't be found... More
