Let me start of by saying this is their new location in downtown. Apparently they were earlier at another location on Denman, which they have not even removed the board at the old location and we had some from our group stand outside. It was...More

Much like others, we had read the mixed reviews and decided to give it a try anyway. 9pm reservation so the restaurant was not busy, I would say at least half empty. We had a great table with a beautiful view. Our server was lovely...More

I'm Brazilian and this place embarrasses me. I went there and the food was terribly dry, the meat was burnt and the service was a bad joke. I spent more than 40CAD/person to have a terrible dining experience. I'm not going back there again ever....

Seriously, I felt embarrassed to have my Canadian friends with me.. that's not the real Brazilian food.. they push you to eat a lot of fried bananas (which is the only thing that it's good, at least) the rest of the food tastes like nothing.
