No atmosphere or heating. Food well below average. Maybe try next door which unfortunately was closed when we visited (Floresta do Salitre ). Whatever you do go somewhere else

boa noite, como é que um site deste pode publicar tudo que o cliente escreve, sem verificar se é verdade ou não, como esta ultima critica, critica, não difama sobre o meu estabelecimento, o cliente dizer que comeu comida estragada e ainda pagou caro, será que a comida estragada paga-se e ainda tem que ser cara, quem tiver um pouco de bom senso, acho que não acredita, mas para já eu sinto-me ofendido. e de mãos atadas, porque os senhores do site dizem que pouco podem fazer, agora eu na resposta não posso ofender, mas os clientes podem escrever e ofender como eles querem e bem entendem. acho que deviam reflectir para não deixarem estas pessoas não estragarem o trabalho de outras, que não dei-chão de ser umas cobardes, no estabelecimento, não dizem nada e depois vão para estes sites dizerem tudo.

já li várias infâmias neste site sobre o meu restaurante, mas esta é a maior de todas, servirmos comida estragada e o cliente pagar é de bradar ao céus, acho que nem em pais de ditadura isto acontecia, muito menos no nosso pais a onde temos civilização de que pudemos nos orgulhar, o cliente tem tudo ao seu alcance, livro de reclamação, policia, etc, etc. ainda mais este restaurante a um negócio familiar o gerente é um dos donos, a chefe da cozinha a uma das donas, o chefe do bar idem. a senhora a boa a inventar deveria explorar essa qualidade, boa sorte e deus ajude como a senhora está atentar ajudar os outros, mas mesmo assim muito obrigadinha
