“Best cake ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

This is an extremely popular restaurant. We went on Father's Day and arrived at 12 noon when it opens. Loads of people were already waiting outside and you had to get a numbered ticket from reception and wait your turn. Even though we had arrived on time we were unable to get a seat in the downstairs area for the rodizio for the first sitting. Large groups (even one of 25 people) were going in and then smaller groups with later tickets were going in before us to fill up the smaller tables. It was very chaotic. In the end we decided to go upstairs - in this area you do not get the rodizio (around R$47) where the waiters serve meat at your table but you do have access to all the buffet/sushi/pasta dishes by weight from downstairs and you can get meat weighed from the open grill. In the end this suited us better as it meant that we did not pay for unlimited meat which we didn't want. The best thing about this restaurant is the Bolo Dois Amores. People pre-order whole cakes for take-away for parties and it is possibly the best cake in the world! Layers of chocolate cake with white and dark brigadeiro mix - fantastic!

“pretty good but it was better before!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2012

It is the best pick in town to go with big groups: the bill is individual and you pay what you eat. Besides, the fresh pasta done in front of you is outstanding. However, the meat used to better and it is exactly their specialty. It´s been tasting as if they were some product to smooth the beef. Hope they stop doing it. Japanese food is pretty good and the pies are wonderful but overpriced.

“Good times... are gone!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011

This restaurant used to be a very good one, but the times changed. Despite the goodf food and variety of appetizers, pastas and japanese food (with more cream cheese than you deserve), the staff is now very rude and seems that they are in a policy of rule the client plate. The servers are gross and look at your plate and said: There´s meat in your plate, why are you want more before finish it? I dont like waste, but in a restaurant with all inclusive this behaviour is more than a insult.
This is strongly reflecting in the frequence of customers. Now there is no line as before and people are migrating to others like sal e brasa.
If you want bad service, go for it! Remember, at this price level, only food is not the criteria.
