Tuna tartar was excellent followed by one of the best wagyu kobu burgers I've had! Proper chunky chips (ask for fries if you prefer). Cocktails also delivered, although the cosmopolitan was a bit sweet! Highly recommend the Three lemon cashasha cocktail... would definitely come again!

The only reason we went - never had eaten it. Ordered, one rare, one well done. Great difference in size on the plate. Well done had burned off a lot of fat. Without a bun, salt or ketchup. Ordered them up and had a satisfaying experience. Certainly expensive-R$70 for aburger.

Choosing to sit centrally in the restaurant helps as waiters trying to get around you near the edge can be a problem! Neverthe less staff were friendly enough, if not quite as friendly as had been suggested by previous visitors. Chicken croquettes to start were a little tasteless. My main course the Salmon Tagliatelle was rich but very tasty. My... More

We had a wonderful lunch for six, chicken burger, hamburger, dumplings, tuna tartar and some cocktails. The food, the music (Maria Gadu) and the service made it a memorable visit.

Exceptional service and good food at a very good value where many restaurants are overpriced for just fair food. Great presentation. Ask for one level below for meat rareness.

We enjoyed a very tasty meal here on one of our 4 nights in Rio at the end of a 3 and a half week trip to Peru and Brazil. We were looking for something different and the varied selection on the menu appealed, especially the choice of burgers as it made a change from the type of food we'd... More

We had a decent lunch for two with octopus, tuna, chicken and chocolate cake. The octopus appetizer was perfectly cooked and well seasoned. Tuna and chicken mains were good but not stellar. Chicken breast was a bit tough and overcooked. The baked potato was very creamy, a fabulous alternative to french fries. The salads were good (amazing by Brazil standards).... More
