Excellent restaurant located in the beauty city Olinda. The food is simply delicious that can be ordered together with a proper wine. For dessert, ask for the "crocante".

Whether alone or with your spouse or the whole extended family, this place is worth the extra $ you'll fork out for one of the best culinary options in Olinda. Excellent service and even better food and drinks.

I was very impressed by the quality of the food in this restaurant. It was reccomended to us as 'pizzeria" but we actually tasted some of the best seafood dishes of the whole holidays.. Fish cooked with all sort of fruits, banana, mango, pineapple etc and octopus and potatos to die for.. They have a good selection of wine too... More

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

The food is good but this restaurant needs up to date the menu and the staff must be more atention to the custtomers.. The bread could be better and the wine menu needs a rennovation.

This is not one of the must for me what concerns to the atmosphere, but what relates to the food, is indeed delicious! 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. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and decor of this place, perfect fit for the historic town in which it... More
