“Check this place out”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 via mobile

We had a great meal here. The ravioli starter was amazing as we all the mains we ordered. They were also very accommodating for the vegetarian we had on our table. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Rio

“Unlucky me!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

We were anxious to know this restaurant. You have to make reservations, it's always full. Well, we went there on a rainy friday night (I suppose that's why we found the places). Small place. About 10 tables. Nicely decorated, but not exceptional. We sat, they brought us a rustic bread, and some "biscoitos globo", typical salty biscuits ambulants sell in the beach!!!! Very poor, what a lack of imagination! They have two kinds of menus if you want to have a degustation night: Confiance (6 dishes, they choose) 390 reais per person with wine and Criação( 4 dishes you choose), 260 reais per person without the wine. We chose the Criação Menu. I wasn't lucky with my choices and found it rather boring. Foie gras a little bit too much well done, with a kind of toast that was burnt. Sweet and sour sauce. Then a shrimp risotto, that was good. Then a ate a caille, with sweet and sour sauce.Then I had a maigret de canard (too much well done again!) with a few endives, unrecognizable, and a sweet and sour passion reduction sauce. I was fed up with sweet and sour sauce! The portions were too big for a degustation. At the and of the course I couldn't eat . For dessert, the Crepe Passion which was very good, but again, very big. My son had a feuilleté de pommes completely forgettable. It was very expensive and I think it was not worthwile. Nothing was sensational, neither the atmosphere nor the food. Some waiters seemed to be beginners. The next 2 days, I had digestion problems. I won't be back again.

“Food Couldn't have been better”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

All dishes we tried were excellent, cooked perfectly and with flavours that were simple and beautiful
The giant ravioli was simply amazing
I doubt there is better in Rio

Only criticisms would be
- Way too much Foie Gras on the menu
- The restaurant was ridiculously cold for some reason and the staff were slow to respond despite several diners complaining
