The location is the high point, beach front. The "picanha" is served in a good proportion for groups or a couple. Deserts are great, if you are still hungry. Quick service and friendly personnel.

This was a real pleasant surprise - such a good meat with so many options for side dishes. Efficient and friendly service as well. Don't look further if you want to eat real Brazilian!

I went with a friend, and ordered a risotto, which the menu said served two. We felt it would serve at least five. Go with many friends to share, or be prepared to bring another meal home.

Although my husband was happy with his appropriately cooked medium - rare steak, the salmon was so dry I had trouble swallowing it. Sauce wasn't much better with capers and defrosted frozen shrimp swimming in olive oil. Overall, not impressed.
