Excellent waiters and managers. Kids menu available, it was delicious.... Good environment. Rich menu, it is difficult to pick just one option. I would recommend the shrimp risotto, croque monsieu and cherne dish.

Comfortable, spacious. Friendly and helpful staff. The chef is present, helpful, friendly. Tasteful and traditional bistrot food, with some nice touches. Fair wine list, though somewhat expensive, as is always the case in Brazil. Good option for french food in Rio de Janeiro.

Very good meal and service. The dessert was amazing. The place is comfortable and nice. The only problem for me is the location, inside a mall.

We went here for lunch today and had an enjoyable experience. The service was very good. We both chose burgers which were very nice. The "couvert" is strange though...you get the usual bread, olives etc but also a portion of fries!!!
