I have been there with my friends and did not regret. They loved the picanha and chicken barbecue and I, as a pesketarian, had a huge congro fillet with shrimp sauce. The portions are huge and the atmosphere is very friendly. It is a place...More

We spent an evening here. Very relaxing with nice sunset views. Got to see the horses close up and talk with the jockeys too.

Sorriso is the name of the guy who served our table. Amazing guy! We ordered picanha, farofa, arroz maluco e batatas portuguesas. Nothing was really special, but not too bad either!

This is a restaurant for people who like exclusive dinners. But it does not fulfill the exclusiveness… Food is good but expensive, service is a kind of disaster. Nice views but isolated.

We visited this place after a few hours at the botanic garden, it's only 5 minutes walk away. We were hungry and the place was full with locals enjoying different cuts of meat, so we gave it a go and we were not disappointed. The...More

As a restaurant, it's nothing impressive, but is situated in Baixo Gavea, a place of gathering in Rio, and that makes all the difference. Take a table in the balcony and order a draft beer (chope) or a caipirinha. The place gets crowded especialy on...More
