“A welcome respite on a long trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Trip Advisor reviewers are a special group of people! We were half way between Buzios and home and it was definitely time for lunch. Where to eat in Nova Friburgo? At the #1 restaurant of course. The reception was a good indicator of what was to come. The first course of lightly breaded shiitake mushrooms with Parmesan cheeses was fantastic and opened the appetite for a nicely grilled fish on top of hearts of Palm and lightly sautéed fresh onion. Then came dessert. A truly wonderful dining experience.

“Brazil's best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Wow, what a revelation.
We had given up on the restaurants serving the same food. This restored the faith.
The atmosphere is excellent, kids are welcomed and the choice from the menu is a nice eclectic mix.
Visit the cellar. Even this is reason to go by itself.
I cannot advise if they do deliveries or late night. We went there around 1400 on a Sunday and there was space, but recommend you book!
