“Terrible service, even worst value for money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2011

The atmosphere is good. We were informed that on Sundays there is an all you can eat buffet for 21 euros per person (drinks excluded). The buffet was not yet displayed. When the buffet was revealed we realized it was composed by 2 kinds of salad, some boiled vegetables and one traditional brasilian course (rise and soup of beans and sausage). But, we expected more would arrive later (because they were bringing 1 dish at a time). In the end we faced the owner lady, very politely, pointing out that a buffet should have at least one more course! (the ladies didn't like the beans and sausage thing, so they just ate salad). The lady made some excuses saying that she considers that to be a buffet. We paid and on the way out the waiter called us "piece of [--]". Also, he did it in English, so to be sure we would understand. When we confronted him saying he should be more polite, he pushed us out the door, repeating the insult and closing and locking the door behind us. Worst experience in a restaurant in my life.

“excelent atmosphere, it brought me back to my vacations in Rio!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2010

Great gastronomic experience with real Brazilian food only a bit changed for the European taste.
Amazing, colourful, still unpretentious décor! Very colourful but still tasteful. It plays with kitsch in a very tasteful manner. It's worth a visit on itself! And it captures the Brazilian feeling (religious icons, syncretism and Bahia religions, colours, tropical fruits, exotic birds...).
The waitress was so funny and friendly in a real, not shallow way.
It is not the cheapest restaurant in town but I definitively recommend it!
