We ordered pineapple stuffed with prawns and fettuccine with prawns and dendê sauce. Plain delicious. The food was perfectly cooked and beer extremely cooled. Surprisingly low price for such a delicious meal.

We had pasta and beef (filet steak with Gorgonzola spaghetti) and two other pasta dishes. They were all very good, as was the juice. The restaurant is cosy, with walls full of messages scribbled by guests - leave your own. One of the owners was there and the service was good too.

I wanted to eat steak and when I arrived I had to choose between Brazilian steaks (with sauce) or Argentinian steaks (without sauce). I went for the Brazilian one and it was sumptuous ! I will try the Argentinian steaks tomorrow !

This restaurant was ranked as the best in trip-advisor, so we were very curious. Atmosphere was unbelievable cause just outside the restaurant a group of locals was singing creating a big buzz. Service was nice and friendly. The food was NOT GOOD! I heard that the owner died 3 years ago. Not anymore was it used to be! I would... More
