Serves good meat with a beautifull decoration. Very well located but the price is a litle bit too high...

Very good steak. We haven't found a better beef steak since we started our round South America trip 4 weeks ago. Although there was only one employee that spoke English it was still a great experience. Would highly recommend.

As an Argentinian restaurant, with imported beef, the quality of the steaks lived up to expectations. The steaks were excellent quality and good value for money; the service was okay (English wasn't spoken though understandable with so few British tourists). I would definitely recommend eating here as it's one of the better restaurants in Buzios

Don’t order the ribs! This multi-level restaurant looks great, offers live music and has a reputation for good meat from its barbecue – but the latter was not our experience.

I ordered ribs and was astonished to receive an offering that was completely inedible. The “chef”, who glared at me when he realised I had rejected his disaster, had cut across the raw ribs instead of the usual manner of following the bone and, without any effort at marinating, basting or adding sauce, had just thrown them on the grill until they were frazzled. The meat was as tough as leather and completed welded to the bones.

Although the oily maître clearly sided with his “chef”, the more sympathetic wait staff did offer a different cut of meat but by then our dining experience was ruined. And they still charged. Don Juan would not have had a romantic dinner here!
