“The best contemporanea food in Rio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

It is a beautifull place in the middle of ipanema, next to the beach of ipanema. It is cozy place, you can eat seated on the floor or on the table. The food is delicious and diferrent of what you eat in rio, if you want to run away of picanha and beans and rice to there. Go there if you are in Rio you'll enjoy.

“Wonderful and eclectic dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014 via mobile

We had a most enjoyable lunch at this local Ipanema icon.The setting is unique in a hotch botch of decor but it has a wonderful casual feel about it.
The staff are on the ball.
The food was great.... Different and very tasty.
We had the organic chicken & vegetable curry and a beef & beer stew. Both dishes were outstanding.
Up stairs one has to take your shoes off to walk on the grass.
Prices are very reasonable.
Just go and enjoy.

“Amazing place! One of the best place in Ipanema/Copacabana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

I've been there with my girlfriend 2 weeks ago. We didn't reserve the table but we found the last one available. I suggest to book before going.
We took 4 cocktails con vodka, 2 starters, two main dishes and 1 cake for 300 reis! Amazing dinner! Little expensive but it was really a great place! I recommend it to everybody!

Great food and drinks in a cosy restaurant; even if you have to wait for a table it is an enjoyable time.
