“A Must See In Rio”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Great Buffet, great atmosphere, great sweets. A traditional restaurant in the heart of Rio de Janeiro, definitely one of my favorite places in Rio. The decoration is amazing, a must see!

We like very much this restaurant. We have already been twice. The food is good. The service is good. The decoration, art deco, is fantastic. You are transported in another time, epoque. We also recommand the cakes. There are delicious,specially the tartelette tropicale.

“Poor service! Hair in my water”
Reviewed December 13, 2012 via mobile

Yes, there was hair in my water. The service is awful, they have a lot of staff but they keep talking each other and laughing as if they were watching a carnival ball, a soccer match or something else.

We asked for the bill, they took like....15 minutes to bring it and they just brought it after I asked again. MacCafe has a better service and they will serve you water you can trust.

“Atmosphere is the differential”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

Located in a very old building downtown Rio de Janeiro, this place provides the visitor a taste of how it should have been like to go to a restaurant decades ago. There are some painting restoration works here and there in the saloon, a pianist playing during lunch time to entertain the customers and service is good.
Food is nothing special but it is tasty. Price is excessive if you consider only the food but the environment compensates for the excess.

“very sweet, almost diabetis”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

the cappucino was good, but put a lot of sugar in it. the decor is nice, old fashion. but the waiters don't came fast to take note of your order, need to have patience to wait them also to pay.
