“Worth full!!”
Reviewed October 24, 2013 via mobile

Very nice surrounding area, at the top of Santa Tereza mountain, with lot of trees and tables spread around, in different ground levels, resulting in nice views of the city . Kind of expensive and small portions of food, but with great style and service.

“Nice hidden gem...”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

A local friend of mine recommended this place to us, and it was on our list of restaurants to try.
We took a cab to get there and it was like a 30 min ride from Ipanema. I recommend to make reservations since it could get crowded, specially during the weekends.
Out of the extensive menu, I chose the picanha (top sirloin) and it was very good. My husband had the grilled octopus, which was delicious. We shared the creme brulee for dessert.
Even though it is expensive, I would say it is worth it if you are looking for a nice, cozy, romantic, and good meal.
Oh! And don't worry, there are cabs outside the restaurant to take you back to your hotel.

“Great find”
Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

A very nice restaurant in Santa Teresa. Quite a bit more upscale than many other Rio restaurants. It's in a quiet neighbourhood between the beaches and central - unless you're staying in Santa Teresa you'll need to take a cab. Make sure you book as it's popular. Great views over the city from the outdoor terrace. Food is an interesting twist on Brazilian and international cooking. Good wine list. Expensive for Brazil but good value relative to US/UK. Staff very friendly and speak good English. Definitely worth the effort to get there, and combining the food with the view, it's a "little bit special".

This was my best meal in Rio - the food was amazing and the views of the city at night were impressive.
