“Not what we expected”
Reviewed 6 November 2011

Excellent location, good service, overpriced lousy food. Just do not bother driving all the way and eating there. The place has a certain charm, but little else. It is not worth the trip.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed 1 November 2011

Don't get me wrong, the food was great and the staff was nice. But the prices were quite simply exaggerated. There are much better places to eat in Rio for less money. Oh and it is impossible to get there (cabs get lost)...

“Why so expensive?”
Reviewed 27 October 2011

Absolutely swell location -- up in Santa Teresa, the artsy bohemian district. The restaurant is built into the side of a hill, with a number of rooms, patios, and what feels like tree houses. the view is of the city down below -- no direct view of any of the famous landmarks, but still, very romantic, especially at night. But the service & food doesn't match the price. We had 2 appetizers, two mains, one dessert, and one bottle of moderate priced wine -- and the bill was over 340 Reals!!!! My main, lamb, was 66 Reals -- and not terribly good, very salty, overcooked, with mediocre veg. People, including locals, rave about this place. I am not sorry I went, as it was romantic, and a special venue BUT the price was egregious for the food and service -- This from a New Yorker who eats out often.

“You pay too much for the view that you are not guaranteed you will get!”
Reviewed 17 October 2011

The food is at best passable. The view is breathtaking if you are lucky enough to get a table that actually has a view. Beware that there is a steep staircase in the entrance, There is no waiting area, several tables are way too close to each other and the service is sub par. Prepare your credit card. You will pay way too much for a round of the mill Brazilian typical food. Visit the neighborhood but forget the restaurant.
