“Don't let the neighborhood scare you away!!!”
Reviewed March 15, 2012

This place is great. We were a tad worried driving up, but we were pleasantly surprised once inside. It is everything the other reviews claim it to be: authentic atmosphere, NO tourists (except us!), great beer selection, and AMAZING food. When you add in the super nice staff and the fact that our waiter's English was quite good, it was a great experience. You MUST put it on your list.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed February 7, 2012

Okay, I'll write it in English because it's not quite hard for a Brazilian know that their food is outstanding and the beer menu quite extensive. There are reviews everywhere about this place and it has already become a traditional Sunday lunch venue.

Let's start with the fact that is located in place that's not quite touristic. A little bit after the center if you are coming from South Zone (Copacabana, Leblon, Ipanema...) or if you came from a Maracana or Mangueira visit, it's probably in your way to the hotel.

They're a famous for adaptation of the Brazilian cousine, with appetizer such as the feijoada 'mini cake', the breaded red pepper (similar to the peperoncini, but called here dedo-de-moça) filled with requeijão ('similar' to cream cheese) and dry meat. The main dishes are well served and fair priced, such as the picanha de carne de sol with peanut farofa, the baião-de-dois and the prawn in the pumpkin (the name in Portuguese is more appealing though ).

Their beer menu is quite extensive for such a small restaurant and they have caipirinhas with fruits you'll not find everywhere, because they are original from other Brazilian regions.

I would definitively recommend this place. Try to make a reservation on the weekends.

“YUMI”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

Great place to go. It's not near to the tourist area but I highly recommend this place, specially if you are beer fan. They have Brooklyn Lager, ALE, IPA, Duvel, a pretty good collection of international beers. Finger food are great too. I recommend you to do seightseeing in Downtown and afterwards go to this place.

“Yummy!!!”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

The taxi ride to aconchego is a little unconventional.It´s far of the turistic circuit.But the thrill is worth it!In this simple neighborhood, you´ll have some of the best brazilian dishes.Try the superb "Bolinho de Feijoada" or "Bolinho de Bacalhau com Grão de Bico" or the "Mini Moqueca", and you´ll taste true happiness.They also have a unique selection of beers from all over the world.The price is reasonable.Some famous Brazilian chefs go there to enjoy this creative restaurant, do like them, and indulge yourself!
