I rate 4 our of 5 more because of the place. But different from the outside view, when you sit for a meal, the windows inside the restaurant are too small and don't show all the beauty outside... I felt like a bird in the...More

It is a very good option to have lunch and appreciate the view of Rio from another perspective... The only thing that I can complain it about is the fact that the restaurant and the entire surroundings are not quite conserved... It needs more maintenance...More

The food is really good (international and some Brazilian dishes as well). The service was fast. The view was amazing!, really worth it have lunch or dinner just for the view (+ the food).

We have been wanting to come here for some time now. Being very late risers means we often have limited options for breakfast around town. (Niterói) We arrived at lunch time (2 pm) and although the place was a little chaotic, the staff was pleasant...More
