Not the greatest food, rather stodgy and the flavours have been mixed in an effort to be 'exotic' which just makes it fussy and rather strange. I had a fillet steak in a pepper sauce, I remain unconvinced that it was fillet and the vegetable dish it came with was spinach in a ramekin on a bed of pureed banana with grated cheese on top, it really didn't work for me. The food was served on a cold plate and as we were sitting outside it got cold very quickly without any heat from the plate to keep it warm. Over priced and really not worth it.

Fantastic! The food was outstanding! My only regret is I did not notice the heart of palm on the menu, I wish I had ordered that! The atmosphere is very cool, you feel like you are in a tree house. Fantastic place!

Located on Santa Tereza, it has som wonderful views of the Guanabara bay. Service is excellent and so is the food. I had a chicken cooked with rice with was superb. They also had good Caipirinhas, and a good variety if beers and wines.

Our GPS had some trouble to find the place, but eventually we arrived. From the outside you see only the sign of the restaurant, so first you have to climb down very steep stairs. But then, big surprise, you end up in a very romantic and exotic place. Situated on different floors, partly indoors partly outdoors, you are definitely not in an every day location. The view over Rio is fantastic.
The food was very good and came in just the right size to leave some space for an excellent dessert as well. Also the staff was very friendly, for us Non-Brazilians very important, most of them speak English.
So, all in all, we had a great evening. The only somehow negative point is that the tables for two are little squeezed in between the other tables. To get the best tables you should be in a group of four or more.
