The place is a very cozy house! Its concept is different that the most restaurants in this area, for it offers good slow food cooked by one Chef! It is not a restaurant to go if you wast cheap food and quick service! The menu offers a variety of plates covering salads, pastas, meat, poultry, fish and vegetarian options. Our... More

A beautiful quant building and decor made makes for a comfortable setting. We accidentally stumbled across this place the next day and had a slow... More

The best meal around the neighborhood. Try the French Press Coffee. It's simply fantastic ! The French environment creates a calm atmosphere. Awesome for couples.

We were a group of 6 and each one ordered a different plate. The environment is great, kind of vintage and staff is very kind. I tried a pumpkin with dry meat risoto and OMG! I can eat it everyday. My husband tried salmon with black ice and also amazing. So I could recommend this place for sure!

One of my friends told me about this cute restaurant. So I made my way there in my last day in Gramado for a delightful and warm lunch in a cold day. Nice food, nice personnel and fair price. Definitely recommend!

My wife and I went there for a light, healthy lunch, and it definitely satisfied that desire. The food was very well prepared from fresh, high-quality ingredients. They have a ton of vegetarian options, a descent beer and wine list, and a nice selection of teas. They also have an awesome list of hot, desserty drinks that we just couldn't... More

This is a lovely place, with great environment and a super tasty menu. I've been there many times. Food is always great, but the last time, it was busy enough to get the waiter confused. It took a long time to bring lunch and the french fries weren't good, but all the rest, perfectly fine. They don't offer many vegetarian... More

Have been in many places in Gramado and this one was the best. Food was carefully prepared and tasted amazing. Many places have just a nice appeal, this one gone beyond. Recommended.
