Great atmosfere and good food and the table set is quite original, with atention to detail. The creme brulee was superb. We recommend the paella and some of the tapas are very original

Was back again last night and was superb - the food is excellent and at a good price for what you get - I have lived in Rio now for 4 years and been to many restaurants here and I consider this one the best for quality of the food, price, ambience and service.

The menu is excellent and varied and you can mix up all the different tapa options - and then follow with a main course. It was more then enough.

There is a great varied wine selection at good prices and a wide selection of beers and caiparinhas. The decor is very stylish and wont be long before this place is in the top 5 restaurants here in Ipanema.

If you are in Rio you must check it out - the other places don't come close!

We visited last night. Everything we had was really delicious, in small beautifully presented dishes. After 5 dishes we had spent enough for a full meal but were still hungry. Service was good, the environment is nice. A good place to impress a date or for posh snacks on a night out, but maybe not for a big dinner.

We had a fantastic night of tapas and drinks here after discovering this place on TripAdvisor. The service was great with the waiter offering advice throughout. We sampled most of the tapas and we're throughly impressed! Make sure you try the Irish coffee cocktail!!!

We went there last night and had an excellent time - it's different to the usual run of the mill type restaurants you get in RIo and brings a Spanish/French tapas style vibe to the scene

The food, wine and presentation were excellent as is the decor and ambience, sophisticated even and in a great Ipanema location

Definitely worth a visit
