Crappy service and crappy food to match! We ordered the polvo with the lettuce salad guarnição. The salad had melted cheese on top — why? The service was so slow but there weren’t even that many people there. The octopus was so chewy because it...More

The bar here has a good variety of drinks to choose from and some tasty appetizers to go with it. The view from this centrally located place is equally impressive

First of all the location is just great: it is a cosy outside place, just in front of Lagoa Rodrigues de Freitas, very nice to chill for a couple of hours, watching the world going by. It has a very pleasant and relaxing environment. This...More

Nice and quite place, has a wonderful view from Lagoa. It's a very relaxed enviroment, It's more of a bar than a restaurant. Good for apetizers and drinks. I recommend going at night.
