This is a very special place where you will feel that you are an old friend of the restaurant staff. They are genuinely friendly. The food is very good served with care. As a vegetarian you will find some options with a "V" on the menu, but you can also ask for something outside the menu as we did with... More

Although I'm vegetarian there were great options with no meat and one that I picked for myself was the lemon ravioli on white sauce. It was delicious, well prepared and well served portion. The environment is calm, cousy although tables are too close from each other which is not very good for datings or private talking. I would definitely return... More

There are plenty vegetarian options. For those who enjoy meet, my parents had a great time with all the options they have. Great service, very friendly and a... More

This one really worth it. They manage to bring a high class gastronomy to Monte Verde. We had a risotto and lasagna. Even tough I was skeptical (specially about the risotto), I was delighted to be proved wrong. Great service too. It is a must go!

Although it is a fancy place to have dinner, they charge too much for the little things, in my opinion. The food is delicious and everybody should visit if they have the chance.

Good service, good food, quality ingredients. Compared with other restaurants we've been to, it really stands out. Deserves its #1 place (as of today).

Definetly that is the best restaurant in Monte Verde. No doubts for its first place position. The space takes us to a farm's grandma house in Brazil countryside.

We had rice balls filled with molten cheese, fettuccine with lamb sauce (home-made pasta), risotto with pepperoni sauce, a bottle of wine, water and an expresso, which cost 230 reais. The restaurant does not charge the service - but we... More
