“Not a tourist trap”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

We had such a nice first evening here that we decided to go back, which was recognized by our friendly waiter. Cheap, chill and friendly - even during the World Cup - is how I'd like to describe it.

“Worst restaurant ever!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

Please avoid if possible. The menu didn't properly describe any of our food & despite the waiter speaking perfect English he acted as though he didn't.
The food was definitely the worst I've ever eaten.

“Good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

We ordered the grilled fish with steamed veggies and the chicken parmigiana. Both dishes were huge - we could easily have shared one! The food was very good and the staff were lovely too. Would definitely recommend.

“Good food at reasonable prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2014

Visited this restaurant five times! both in the evening and at lunch as it was just around the corner from our hotel. On arriving in Rio feeling very tired we were looking for a restaurant with English on the menu as we didn't understand Portuguese. We were fortunate to be helped by Francisco, a waiter who spoke perfect English who helped us decide what to have for our meal. We chose the filet mignon steak in a mushroom and madeira sauce. Enough for two people the meat was so tender and the sauce delicious. The cheesy rice which accompanied it was a bit strange but it also came with chips! We normally would try different places to eat but after long sightseeing days it was so easy to return here. Everything we had was delicious.
