We visited for a weekday lunch. It is clearly a popular place and the verandah was an attractive spot to watch what was going on. Caught us out with an excessive 'cover charge' for bread. The fish was good and the brownie (although delivered by truck as we watched) was not bad. The drinks were not outrageously priced,

The access isn´t very easy. But when you arrive you find a nice and cozy atmosphere. The staff is very professional and attentive. I ate a delicious confit de canard and this would be my recommendation. Go and enjoy !!

Great fixed price menus for lunch really good value, in this buzy off the tourist route area of Rio. It is a walk from the main gates of jardim botanical but worth while

Not only is the manager a very nice and compassionate person. He gave our girls free water when we were not even eating in his premises despite our protests. he is also a very good host of a beautiful restaurant. You only have to look at the caliber of the guest [fine clothes, large cars etc] and how long they... More

Stumbled on this place in Jardim Botanco and we were so pleased we did. The food was amazing and the staff were really friendly and attentive. We will definitely go back there, maybe tomorrow.
