Good country style restaurant, food van improve but over all its good.Prices are moderate ,decor is nice,lots of old country items and paintings in the wall.Try the arroz mamposteao with either the churasco or seafood. The chicken dip and malanga chips are a great appetizer.

Our Miami hotel Bellman recommended and boy was he right. We deferred to the bartender as to what dishes to order--he couldn't have been more right--we followed his recommendation on a shared dinner of "Tornado" skirt steak stuffed with a Japanese potato and for dessert...More
