The food is good. I have been there twice. Always the main dishes are served so small. I left there hungry. Expensive so I should not go back there again.

Very good service. Nice meal. Waiters very kind. Definitely recommend a visit. At initial looks live a very old place but do not get influenced by that, it is a good choice!!! Plan to return there if I have the chance.

Thank Andre B

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born. With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living proof that the old and the new can live together harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where all major companies house their offices. However, the region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that used to serve as a residence for governors of Brazil, can be found here. Pedra do Sal, a Monday night street party, is also in this neighbourhood. This landmark is the birthplace of samba and is famous for its “roda de sambas” (“dance circles”). Stop in for one and get closer to discovering where Brazilian happiness comes from.
