We then ordered carne do sol as a starter with rice and beans and the local farofa with carne secco. The food was simply delicious. We never got around (glad we did not order everything at once) to order the main meal... More

They did not ask us how we wanted to picanha to be prepared and while we expected it and like it to be 'medium' we got it 'well done'.... More
