This restaurant is elegant, without excessive formalism. It is appreciated by the carioca high society and especially by middle-aged couples. The decor is typically Portuguese, with authentic antique furniture and an antiques dealer on the mezzanine. Some of the house hits are codfish à lagareira—whole pieces baked in olive oil with onions and garlic, broccoli and black olives—and duck rice. The desserts made from eggs and sugar are typically Portuguese.
We thought the ambiance and service were very good. However, the food did not measure up to expectations. The items were extremely expensive and not very good. The English menu was different from the Portuguese menu in both items and price. We cannot recommend this restaurant to others. There are better restaurants in Rio to try.
The food was wonderful. I ecspecially enjoyed the spicy chicken that I had. And the service was fast and very friendly. The atmosphere had a Latino flare but it wasn't too over the top or tacky. I definatley got my moneys worth! I reccomend this to anyone and everyone in and out of the area. If you are out of the area it is well worth the drive!
A thoroughly disappointing experience after what we had read in previous reviews. Food was average and very expensive compared to other restaurants. However, they need to charge more to pay for the army of waiters and other staff!!
Look elswhere in Rio for better food, better service and a better experience.
