We had "carne de sol de filé" (salted cured beef) , "cuxá" rice , cooked manioc and fried banana. Everything tasted very good. Giant portion. We ordered half and it served three people. Highly recommend for those interested in having a traditional local meal.

Great service and delicious food. We had the picanha and they served it perfectly cooked. We enjoyed sitting outside, but there are tables inside, as well.

Great place for big groups, large portions and excellent food. We took the advice of the waiter and it was great, everyone should try the "carne de sol"(sun meat). It was the best I've ever ate. We also ordered 2 other dishes that were really good but the sun meat was just amazing.

We had lunch there on a sunday. The place was packed full (always a good sign for restaurants, isn't it?). Food arrived shortly after our group was complete. Everything I tried was delicious. I particularly enjoyed the "Carne do sol". The waiters did a surprise serenade for my father-in-law's bday. I heard several of those, so the locals seem to... More

Excellent food for a fair price. Inside and outside dinning options and many choices of regional food. Great service with Valet parking option. For me it is a "must go" in the city.

I was there for dinner and we had a carne de sol fillet. We were 4 and we were not able to eat all the food the amount is massive but the quality is also good. The staff was very very gentle. I loved the service. The atmosphere is not sofisticated but its worth a visit

Very good! The ambiance is good, the food is even better. The price is good for the amount they serve. The dishes are for several people to eat.
