Reviewed June 24, 2013

Good atmosphere, excellent food. I´ve ordered Lamb Ribs and Mushroom Risotto. My wife ordered fish and both were divine. The service was fast and the Wine wasn´t overpriced.

“A menu that touches 5 continents and decent food...”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

...but that comes at a price. The portions, except dessert, are small and the prices high. A couple will leave here having spent R$200 for a 3 course dinner and drinks. If you consider that reasonable - enjoy.

A rucula and mozzarella salad was ok. The cheese not being of very high quality. But a main course of salmon was quite good - crunchy seeds of maracuja and a sauce blended with honey. Dessert - over decorated - a "brownie" with ice cream, strawberries, whipped cream, and a chocolate sauce (milk and white).

A detail that always makes me crazy in Brasil - the napkins are cocktail size. It's simply not a culture to put a napkin on your lap - for the most part. And lackadaisical service - I had to beg for a check.

The ambiance - not cozy, actually kind of sporty - people in shorts, tank tops, others dressed - anything goes.
