“Overcooked food, terrible service and dishonest bill”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

I went to have lunch with 3 Brazilian friends to O Pote. We ordered 4 mains and had to wait 1 hour and 20 minutes to be served after asking twice if they have lost our order.
The food came and everything was overcooked: the beef, the pork and the duck despite the fact that everybody asked for medium rare cooked. We complained to the Manager and he answered that they can do nothing about that. The beef was so overcooked that my friend couldn't eat it more after the first bit.
Then the bill came and they tried to charge us a 80 USD bottle of wine that we didn't order.
We mentioned to them and they said that they did a mistake with the table next to us (although this table didn't order any wine as well).
The full experience was a shame for restaurant where we spent 50USD per head.
