Crowded, loud. Very small place. So called Portuguese specialties. Two cappuccinos two pastels de natal. Order repeated 3 times. Server could not hear. Wait for about ten minutes. It comes. We ask for bill. 45.00 reais. Not worth it.

high-end restaurants and luxury shops, many of which
can be found on the charming Garcia d'Ávila Avenue.
