We visited La Casserole for a quiet birthday dinner. It was a Tuesday evening, very quiet with more waiters visible than clients! Indeed, for the first hour we were the only clients! But by the time we left, numbers had swollen to 14. On arrival, one could immediately sense the classic style of this bistro, and the menu provided clear evidence of an excellent 'melange' of traditional French cuisine. We were not disappointed; the quality of food was everything we had been led to expect, especially the steak accompanied by a true sauce béarnaise. We were, however, disappointed by the slow and often inattentive service and by the quite extortionate costs of wine. Even by São Paulo standards, the wine was ridiculously and unjustifiably expensive, with the result that we had to limit our choice to an unexceptional bottle of Chilean red wine whilst still paying in excess of R$90. So, quality and ambience good but remember to take your credit card if you intend drinking wines, and try to avoid the early part of the week; it is most probably well frequented later in the week and on Saturdays.
