They are specialized in arab food but with a smart brazilian touch in the food...the sandwishes are to die for, specially the ones with filet mignon, yummy cut of beef. The place is really charming, so pleasant to be with friends to drink and talk....More

You're paying for the amazing views over the lake here. The food is ok and the service isn't great, but the setting is lovely in the evening

The food is ok. Nothing remarkable. The view of the Lagoa however is spectacular. The drinks are good, really liked the rustic decor and the prices are very reasonable. Good people watching too.

This is a terrible restaurant option period, never mind one offering "Arab" cuisine. The food is mediocre at best but exorbitantly priced for ridiculously small portions. If the propietors knew anything about Middle Eastern culinary culture, they would realize how much they're insulting their clientele...More

It's a traditional restaurant around Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon. As his name the speciality is Arabian food. The environment is great and plates are tasty. For start I recommend Mezze Arabe and main course Lascas de cordeiro e Picanha com molho tarrine (pic). It's delicious!

Stopped here by chance after cycling around the lagoon. Was expecting mediocre food in a lovely setting. Ended up with some of the nicest middle Eastern food I've had the pleasure of having. Amazingly fresh falafel and kofte with incredibly fine flatbread.

I had been a couple of times to this restaurant and the Mediterranean food is good, fresh bread and quality of dishes, not the top of the line but well above other restaurant of this type of food. The view from the restaurant is very...More
