“Good for lunch”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

This restaurant is nicely presented and the food is good for the price you pay at lunch (46 reals pp excluding drinks and desserts). It's also very well located for the beach in ipanema or if you want to go to rua Garcia d'avila

“Keep on walking”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

We ate here on one of our first nights in Rio after hearing so much about the "kilo" restaurants. It reminded me of a bad cafeteria. Brightly lighting, long buffet table, food sort of warm. Most of it was either bland, too salty or bad tasting. The worse part was when we got the bill and discovered the kilo price that was outside was the lunch price and dinner was about 50% higher.

“Overpriced for average food”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Compared to other kilo restaurants around this place is over-priced. The service is no better even though the restaurant itself looks glitzy. The food is typically Brazilian and you can either pay by weight or go for eat as much as you want. The sushi, grilled meats and deserts aren't included in the eat as much as you want option though. Better kilo restaurants around.
