Service very slow and inattentive - 30 min wait - made worse as we were the only ones in at 6:45pm on a Monday. Food okay, the prawn risotto being the best dish. Caipirinhas were average at best. No mention of service charge on the menu but handwritten 10% added to bill. Better, cheaper restaurants nearby.

Had the fish which was good, not the best I've tried but good enough. Good service and a nice place. The downstairs area is open towards the street.

A true carioca experience. The food is simply excellent and the chopp is served as it should be. We really enjoyed the " Bacalhau", " Bolinhos de Bacalhau", Pasteis de Camarao com Catupiry e a Caldeirada!

Food was badly prepared. Ordered a simple steak and fries. The steak was very thin and undercooked. The french fries were underfried and the campanha sauce was stale.

Food was very good (I had cod fish and they had a cozido which is a mix of boiled vegetables, fish, sausages, potatoes...very tasty by the way... More

Very good barzinho, nothing too much different of what you find in other bars if you go out in Rio. The exception being the PASTEIS, that are soooo good ! It might not be the best i've been to, but I would DEFINITELY return and recommend !!

While in Rio we had lunch everyother day and a few stops for chopp and caipirinhas while having a great vacation in Rio. The food is great, portions are huge and good for sharing. Apetizers: pastel and caipirinha and chopp keep flowing. Daniel is a great Host.
