“Best restaurant in Brazil”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

We were staying in Botofogo - and finding restaurants around there was not too easy. We spotted this as we walked to Copacabana and we later looked it up - the Food was fantastic, the restaurant was clean, staff friendly , wine perfect. Variety was excellent and unlike other restaurants - the portions were just nice - not too big. Incredible tastes and display.

“Gourmet Yum Yum for a good price in Rio!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

Service, food, ambience were all superb. Surrounded by 50's and 60's colorful antique furniture, we had the prix fixe 5 course dinner served to us by Terena, who was super personable and dedicated to explaining the chef's vision to us with surprisingly good English skills. At 110 Reals per person, it was a steal for a gourmet meal! To make sure you get there easily, ask your hotel concierge to write down detailed instructions for the cab driver on how to find this (purposely?) hidden gem in Rio de Janeiro.

“Not any longer what it used to be”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

This used to be one of the very best places in Rio. Maybe because of this success, or the opening of new places by the same chef, have turned this restaurant into a very ordinary place... And since it's sort of the middle of nowhere, better head for other options!

“Out of the way, but excellent food and drinks...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

A business associate recommended this tucked-away restaurant....and I am glad she did. To begin the decor is both antique, retro and well thought out. I tried the caipivodka to start my visit, and it was great. The food is elegantly and properly prepared, and the service was very good. I would recommend trying this restaurant in Rio. It will bedinitely be worth your time and effort.
