The food was good and so was the service. It ia quite expensive and they charged a dubious tourist tax that no one else charges.

First time going for their new breakfast menu after seeing the sign and it did not disappoint. Big breakfast menu with lots of options and very enthusiastic staff. I had the breakfast 2 option and it is perfectly presented on a cute little tray. Coffee, fresh juice, a little cup of granola fruit and yogurt, cheesy bread and pancakes with... More

We went here a friday night for drinks and dessert. The restaurant is nicely decorated, and cozy. The live music was enjoyable - chill and comforting! We ate panacotta, which was REALLY good - and not expensive. Only thing you need to know is that you pay a fee for the music on your tab. It didnt really bother us,... More

We enjoyed this so much for dinner last night we've come back for breakfast today (breakfast is a new departure for them, and today is their first day). The staff couldn't be more helpful or eager to please. This morning's breakfast of scrambled eggs, fresh bread, granola with fruit and yoghurt, fresh orange juice and coffee/tea was fantastic and great... More

This cafe now has its own bakery doing amazing breakfasts every morning. They've got a lovely selection of pastries, breads, sandwiches, and cakes, and do a few breakfast menu options. The staff are very friendly, the location in a lovely colonial building in the heart of the old town is perfect, and the food wonderful.

The place has a great atmosphere with live music as you eat. We could see into the kitchen from where we were sat, we saw a chef use a shop bought pasta sauce in one of the dishes which we ordered, when you're paying high prices you don't expect that! Got a bit of a shock when the bill arrived,... More

The restaurant is chic and cozy even if I am not a great fan of enormous tv screen which fortunately was silent and allowed to listen to the nice musical soft American music. My waiter Philippe was very nice and dedicated to its job. But of course the food was good, nicely presented with taste and fresh. Very tasty. Very... More

Love this place. The staff were professional and efficient. The sea food salad was recommended by a previous reviewer and was simply delicious. The steak was some of he best i have eaten in a long time and the warm chocolate pudding rounded off a great meal. The food is slightly expensive but you get what you pay for and... More

We only had starters but those were delicious. The music playing was very nice, and the main reason we went in. Sadly the place is overpriced. Not that much the food (30-40 reais) but the additional things. 18 reais per person for the music! And 12 for a very small water... A pity, since the place, the music and the... More
