The restaurant is very classic in Rio, the ambient is calm with some old stuff. Lots of couples and mature people. The menu is extremely overpriced, like 250,00 reais per person. The couver costs 32,00 reais. and the food costs a lot. Comes lots of food, you can share, even when the waiter encourage you to order your own plate.... More

This place used to be the premium dinner spot in town over the past 30 years, building quite a reputation. Unfortunately, it seems stuck in time hand in hand with that reputation. They serve what some would call traditional food, while others would call dated. It is supposed to be a Portuguese restaurant, but nowadays it has more brazilian re-lectures... More

Our hotel recommended the restaurant to see how and what the locals eat. Stunning decor, very old world. Excellent service with a wide array of appetizers included in the price of our meal. Pricey but the food is excellent.

We saved this restaurant for our last night in Rio. It had been highly recommended and were not disappointed. The menu was only in Portuguese but we did our best ordered and it was amazing. Enjoy it!

This is a highly traditional restaurant in Rio de Janeiro. For many years it has been a meeting point of the high society of the city. However, what we look for is tasty and sophusticated food. One will not find such thing here. It is tasty, well served, but heavy. And, most of all, excessively expensive. The wine list is... More

The food was fairly good, but I wasn't aware there was a R$35 couvert charge per person for lunch. Nor did I appreciate a 10% tip automatically being added on my credit card! Nor having three different telephones with three different ringtones frequently ringing.
