One of the best restaurants I have ever been to. The plates are usually for two people and they are really big. We ordered fish side dish of shrimp rice. It was delicious. We recommend the brazilian lemonade which is also served without sugar. On our next visit since we loved the chili sauce that they serve at the restaurant... More

We were in Barra da Tijuca during the 2016 Rio Olympics and we wanted to just walk to a near by restaurant after watching the Olympic Golf on Thursday. My friend who had suggested that we try this restaurant after seeing it on his phone map. He recognized the name because he had been to this chain in Bahia and... More

The dishes are big. Typically 3 people will eat and get satisfied. Ask for shrimps as this is restaurant's showcase.

We had an excellent celebratory lunch here yesterday. The food was fantastic and the service also excellent. Only warning is that the quantities are large so get advice on quantities to order. Highly recommended!

I ordered shrimps with leek sauce and risoto al funghi, both were very well-prepared. The service was remarkably good (much above Rio de Janeiro standards on that). It was overall a very good experience. As I was by myself, it was relatively pricey (few options for one person), but if going in 2+, the plates are reasonably priced. It is... More

This is a very good restaurant and not too expensive. The atmosphere is fantastic and there are several dishes that are very healthy. I recommend the Primavera, which is grilled shrimp with harts of palm and vegetables.

This is a great place, it is full of locals, you will see families going for the typical dinner on Sundays, even when Rio is very informal, consider that this is located in an expensive mall, so dress accordingly to be even more comfortable. The dishes are really large. Also very recommended is the mix appetizers a table with Ceviche,... More

I came here for lunch with my son on a rainy Saturday. The service was forgetful in the sense that the waiter forgot to order the second crab gratin, forgot my second beer and the water for my son, forgot the new tablewear after the first course. Food was not here nor there, tasted factory made, like a better quality... More

We went there last Friday and we really had a great time. The place is gorgeous and based on the reviews, we ordered Bobo de camarao, a dish with shrimp, coconut milk and mashed manioc.It has the consistency of a stew. When they brought it in a clay pan, I thought it was too thin, but when I ate, it... More
