“one of the best in the city”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

Besides a beautiful place, the restaurant offers some exquisite and tasted mezzes (this origin is mediterranean). Juices, fishes, meals and some Brazilian 'arroz doce (sweet rice) is a wonderful surprise. A must!

“Excellent food, great setting, friendly and helpful staff!! Bravo.”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

This restaurant is a little known treasure in São Paolo. It has a secret little garden in the back with coal fires to keep you warm. The staff are all very friendly, inviting and knowledgeable about the food and the wines they offer. They made a great gin and tonic! Highly recommend this address. You can either enjoy a variety of Mezzos or go for their full dishes. We tried many dishes and found all to be delicious. Beautiful decor, trendy but not to full of themselves.
It is a small, hidden treasure, closed on Sundays and Mondays. Not open for lunch, only dinner.

“Charming and special dinning experience.”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Chef Gabriela Barretto has brought her inovative style by presenting her Argentine Grill inspired cuisine in small portions called mezzés. I highly recommend on focusing on these small portioned dishes instead of the main course selection. All food is prepared in a wood burning grill that packs flavor, all very simply prepared with great care. Leave room for desert, don´t miss out on coconut torte with creamy laban. The gardem dinning area is quite charming and romantic, great for special dates. By the way this restaurant is in São Paulo in the state of São Paulo and not in Sao Paulo De Olivenca, State of Amazonas as shown in the Trip Advisor site.
