Followers of Chilean Rolando Toro, founder of biodance dynamic, got together for a local food adventure, with local menu and local roots. Sun-dried meat, large fried red snapper, caipirinhas all in front my eyes. Nice decor, good service. The only drawback was the live music: too loud, impossible to here each other. Goods were dying away! We insisted on!

If you like to taste a good regional food, you need to visit this restaurant!! the people are friendly and price is good. You need take care about address because this restaurant changed location, they are now in front of Lagoa Jansen.

A bad experience: the meat we ordered was so hard we could not cut it or chew it... Fish was better but not of the same quality as Cabana do Sol. Go there instead!

It's expensive and up to serve food similar to Cabana do Sol. It was great some time ago but quality went down and prices up. You'd have a better meal in Cabana do Sol.

It's a typical food from the northeast of brazil, the most popular character from this restaurant is the 'pasteis' (pastry)with a sweet pepper jelly, and the best, it's for free! Besides of that everything else is expensive, but the food tastes good too.
