This is probably of the worst possible restaurants you can go considering value for money. Not only in Rio, but probably around the world.
They charge you like 200 USD for a seven course meal with wine paring (which I found all of them terrible food and wine matches).
No special taste at all, nothing astonishing in look or quality or even experience. If you go to Chicago or London with the same money you will experience something real.
This restaurant is a big fraud and nothing, absolutely nothing matches a Micheline star.
Not the food, not the waiters, not the wine, not he sommelier, not value for money. Don’t go there if you don’t want to feel like a fool.

Yesterday I was here with friends, I liked everything except dessert, and my husband was not lucky, his fillet of duck could not be chewed at all. But there was one problem, we were terribly frozen, my friends got sick today. Therefore, their mood was very bad.
Well, the price is of course very high, the supper cost more than in two Michelin stars
