We went here due to many positive reviews on tripadvisor, but unfortunately I wasn't very lucky with our choice of main dish. It was a fish dish which was a little over cooked and unfortunately there was a long hair in my food. My appetizer was good though. Staff was attentive and very pleasant, showed us around the property.

Delicious meal and very good service. The decoration is also delightful. The restaurant is just by a river so the delicious noise of water is audible. They could spare some money on the air conditioning, though as The restaurant can get very chilly.

Our host of the night was the sympathic chef Christophe himself, amidst a typical cozy French joie-de-vivre setting. Wine, starter, main, dessert, all delicate, delicious and outstanding like what you expect from French cuisine. This together with a smooth background chanson, an invitive piano and a limoncello for rounding up made our night just perfect! The pousada of the same... More

Throughout the meal, our glasses are constantly topped up, we are always asked if we are satisfied with the meal and the staff were attentive without being overbearing.

When I made my reservation I was asked for my email address and promptly received an email with a practical link to Google Maps, and the strict instructions: do not come early or late. Be punctual.

Not arguing about the sense of a French restaurant practically in the Atlantic forest, this pretend-to-be local is overrated. We did not have a bad dinner, but prices and environment made us laughing when exited. Go eat Brazilian

About a ten minute taxi ride from our base in the old city center we had a wonderful dinner at Voila Bistrot, in a private park-like setting. The caipirinha's that we began with did not have a lot of sugar added like they often do, making it seem more like an adult cocktail rather than just spiked lemonade. The duck... More

This restaurant is up to most of its reviews when it comes to the quality of the dishes. Antipathy, however, is its motto. It is more strict than any restaurant you may have come across in Paris. It's impossible to be comfortable while ordering or sipping some wine. Maybe it's just too pretentious for its own sake.
