Too many flies, we couldn't listen to music very well because of a noisy "futvolei" arena nearby. The food wasn't so delicious, we had a moqueca, but the flies didn't let us eat in peace. Nevetheless, they have good waiters and nice drinks.

My wife and I ordered a lobster and a fish with capers. The fish was extremely salty and the lobster was undercooked. The caipirinhas were the worst we drank in Brazil. Not recommended at all. I only give two star because the service was good.
