We found the place walking by... it looked popular among locals and although we thought "French restaurant in Rio?" we gave it a chance... and totally loved it!! The duck rice was a total success... it's perfect for a romantic dinner or family Sunday/especial occasion!

Great restaurant, good ambiance, and the main thing is that the quality of the food is very reliable. I order my favorite dishes multiple times, and it is consistently good. I live a couple blocks from this restaurant.

We went for a quick eat on an Olympic night. Very few people (at 7:30!). Waitresses very confused and unfocused...no-one to meet us at the entrance. Food was bland (a tartine and a shank steak)...nothing much.More

high-end restaurants and luxury shops, many of which
can be found on the charming Garcia d'Ávila Avenue.
