The food here was great. We had a tasting menu and got 5 diished. The sizes of the dishes were big enough to get you full. The best dish I had was duck with foie gras and also the shrimp risotto. The onlybthing that dissapointed me a little was the creme brulee as it just tasted okay. The texture was not right. Not the easiest restaurant to find, but easy to get to with a taxi, and worth it. Reservations must be made in advance. The service was good. It is a pricey restaurant, but it was worth it. Would recommend it for celebrations or as the one expensive restaurant to treat yourself to while in Rio de Janeiro.

Brazil meets Europe. A unique experience of aromas, flavors and textures. Sometimes a bit strange but still unexpected food pairing.
If you are in Rio, don't forget to try this Cuisine.

One of the best food I have ever tried... Excellent service, great wines and food, dessert...
Location is great, it is a small restaurant and very exclusive. Prices are high but not much more than prices of average great restaurants around...
I ate a shrimp risotto that was delicious! Just be prepared to spend around 200 dollars per person for a dinner and some wine and it will be a very pleasant experience...
I will definitely will come back there!
Do not forget to do a reservation.. the staff speaks english...

I read that this restaurant was Franzilian, a fusion between french and brazilian and it´s completely true. You can choose a la carte or a tasting menu of 3 or 5 courses. Choosing 5 courses made a fantastic dinner, since each course was really a taste, a small portion.
Not only the flavour was delicious, also the presentation of each dish was beautiful. We even got an extra amusse-bouche as a starter and petit-fours after dessert, so it was actually a 7 courses dinner.
One of the chefs, Claude, was courteously greeting the tables, so we dare to ask him for a kitchen tour, which he kindly agreed.
This was, for us, the best restaurant in Rio, and that´s including Fasano, ´Gero, Satyricon, Marius, Fogo de Chao and Porcao.
