The food is very good, We had a nice moqueca which is enough to feed 4 people. The price was fair and the view to the restinga da Marambaia is beautiful . Not much space for parking though..

Simple menu but fantastic quality - try the "pasteis" as a starter. Not the most comfortable restaurant and no great view but the service is fast and the food quality is excellent at normal prices. Very popular with Cariocas (locals) at the weekends !
