I found the food to be very average, I had fish, it was undercooked with no flavor. For the price, this was a disappointment.

A solid French restaurant with menu in French and Portuguese. Good menu with traditional French dishes (fillet au poivre, crevettes, rabbit, duck) cooked and served well. A small restaurant with good decor, quiet and attentive with an excellent wine list for Brazil. Have eaten here once, will be going back !

This French restau tries to blend the french cuisine with the North-east Brazilian one and they do this fusion very well. There is a special night (Thursday) they serve Mussels. Unhappily I did not go at this... More

This restaurant is run by a french chef (Jeff Colas) who loves mixing french cuisine with local ingredients. The result is deliscious a fusion.

My wife and I stopped by this restaurant after an afternoon of sightseeing through the wonderful colonial town of Olinda. When we entered, I think we were the only people there, so we asked to sit by the window overlooking the street.
