Familia has a nice atmosphere, where its a cross between an art gallery, and a nice quiet sit down meal. There is quite often... More

The best place in Niterói to have a good Barbecue. The service and the quality of the wine chart and food menu are both top quality.

When you make the trek from Rio to Niteroi, you hope for something special. In this sense, I guess you can say we were underwhelmed. We went on a Saturday with friend who live in Niteroi and raved about the restaurant. It is supposed to be a Uruguayan style meat place. Having lived in Uruguay, I can assure you that... More

Decided to join a friend for dinner and was not disappointed! Wanted steak and a good glass of wine, found out on Wednesday you buy one bottle you get a second one for free. Good deal! Great choice of food and wines, the place and staff are nice too. Big fire place they use to prepare your food. Highly recommended.
