The picanha we had was splendid. Simply the best we had eaten. The dish comes with a broccoli-rice and fries. And if all this isn't enough they bring you additional farofa with banana. My favorite restaurant in Rio

Lively, unassuming Brazilian brasserie. Friendly staff and seriously tasty food. Recommend the little sausages as starter. Local wine was simple but good. Loved the picanha. One tip though, one order of meat plus sides is enough for two big eaters.

Great. The food was delicious, the waiters always friendly and helpful, atmosphere both chatty and relaxed. Went there perhaps 6 times in a 1-month visit!
