This was a great little place, for quite some time. Lately it has been in steady descent. Yesterday it culminated with unqualified service, ill prepared dishes and spoiled food. Drinks are served watery and their cocktails lack in liquor, making it up in sweet mixers and water. Had to send the dishes back for proper preparation (which the waiter apologized... More

The service was friendly – helpful and good answers to questions about cocktails. The taste of the tapas was good.

Nice place to drink. But sushi are really not bad as well. Very pleasant and friendly atmosphere. What is more, when I was there they had a waiter who speaks English. He was the only one of all bars in Rio.

while driving by in a taxi, the sax-player and large crowd outside caught my attention. we asked him to stop and got out to join the people dancing on the street. unfortunately didn't get a chance to get a drink inside, so will have to come back once again for that...

Service is very friendly and fast. they open early on weekends close by 4 am with good food. On weekends don't expect to find a table after 10PM. but the... More

Great service and busy bar with beautiful people. Make sure to get there a bit before midnight to get a table. Cariocas (people from RIo) like to hang out outside with drinks for hours and do not mind the wait. The foreign people with me would get very annoyed with the wait..

It's a nice bar for drinks but I wouldn't have dinner here. The menu has more tapas like food rather than dinner. We had bruschetta which was soggy and then a bowl of risotto and a bowl of rice with shrimps. Both portions were small and not really value for money. Drinks were nice so this place should be listed... More
