3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2012 via mobile

Food is average , people ok, place is cool, apple pie dessert is marvellous. If you don't have much time to spend for better food , a standard choice.

“Disappointed - Too Much for Too Little”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2011

It has been some time since we were last here. Being Sunday in Rio, there is not much open in the historic central part of the city, so we decided to try it again. I must say that we both were disappointed at the quality of the food, the presentation and the price. My partner had a chicken dish, that looked somewhere between chicken stroganoff and who knows what. i had sole mediterranean and the fish was a bit tough, the sauce did not seem as if it was made from fresh tomatoes and the price was around $30. Too much for too little.

“nice setting, avoid the food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2011

The place is a old typical house (casarão) from colonial ages, nicely restored.
It is divided into an inside section with air conditioning, and a patio - not always opened.

It's a pleasant sitting to have a couple drinks after work, but I gave up on the dinning experience: although the menu seems appealing, the dishes are kind of plain. At 40 to 50 R$ the individual order, it's too expensive.
