“Great evening out.... included a Saturday evening Brazilian show”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

The service was excellent, free parking, the food was exquisite starting from the appetizer up to the dessert. An excellent evening out - the price was right for the quality, we've paid more elsewhere.

“not as good as it used to be!”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

Went there with a friend...but it was deceiving...Don't know what,s going on with them but it used to be one of my favourite restaurant in Montreal, for their great brazilian food and atmosphere. The restaurant was empty, the waitress was not caring and it looks like they were running on bankrupcy....:-(

“Table D'hote excellent”
Reviewed December 4, 2011

The table d'hote was delicious and well worth it. Soup was beautifully spiced and mango salad had a nice dressing with fresh coriander. Our main courses - chicken and salmon- both had delicious sauces with lovely flavors- cooked just right. A creme caramel and chocolate mousse were a lovely ending to the meal. The decor is tasteful and the restaurant is quiet (except on Saturdays when they have live music and dancing). I have been there a few times and have always enjoyed my meal.

“we have been fooled!”
Reviewed September 3, 2011

I went to this restaurant (the one on lacadie) on friday, sept 2nd to celebrate my marriage anniversary with my husband thinking that we are going to have an excellent exotic evening with new culinary experience and watching an exotic brazilian show. On their web site, it is mentionned that there is a show every friday and saturday night. we asked our server if there will be one tonight and she said yes . we stayed until after 9pm and there was no show at all. we were very disappointed especially that we paid 140$ for food really not worth it. I had the seafood casserole and was surprised to see a big bowl of soup full of mussels, 1 only shrimp that tastes nothing, a lot of rice and few junk of fish and calmars. we were automatically charged 18% service on our bill despite the fact that it sould happen only to group of 8 as written on their menu.
we had the feeling that we have been fooled. with that money we could have spent the night watching a true show and having a real nice meal in a lot of other places.
we will never return there.
