This restaurant is a good surprise to me. I had been many times in Penedo, but never at Jardim Secreto. Many exquisite choices, from risottos to trutas, pork meet to fetuccini , all of them are incredible. Try yourself!

This is one of the most famous restaurants in Penedo. The plates are well elaborated, very tasty. I tried the ribs and it was great. Other people of the family tried the risoto, fetucinne and all were very good. The beverages price is abusive though....Please follow us at @mapamunditravel, and if you find it helpful, please, give me a vote! Thanks in advance =)More

The restaurant lies off the touristic center, yet not far. The name of the restaurant reflects its environment: private, beatiful and peaceful. Service was outstanding, and the food, with unique recipes, was memorable. Great choice for couples.

One of the best options in Penedo region. Good service, cosy ambience, exquisite dishes. Try the “Prato da Boa Lembrança”. Always a good choice and you get a man-crafted plate for decoration.

We arrived late for our lunch reservation and lost our table, ended up close to the toilets which carried a certain aroma. Starters very ordinary and uninspired, main course only slightly better, noisy ambience from large family parties. Didn't stay longer. Slow service, especially on...trying to pay and get out. Not something to repeat.More

Nice restaurant with pleasant environment. Good food and fantastic desserts. Very professional service eventhough slightly lacking in warmth. I think definitely worth a visit.

Visited this restaurant 4 times over the last years whenever we stayed in Penedo. I think it is the best one in town. The prices are honest and the food has always been of good quality and tasty. Maybe not inventive cuisine but not deceiving....The waiters are attending well and the place is nice.More

After checking all good comments here, we decided to try this restaurant ourselves in one of our trips back to Sao Paulo and were very much satisfied with this great experience. The place is just cute and charming. The service was excellent (it does not...seem that you are still in Rio), especially all the care from Joao and Joel, and the food is simply delicious. I had a fish with moqueca de pupunha and coconut rice and my husband had trout from secret garden. Both dishes were fantastic!More

If you are staying in Penedo for a few days, you have to include a dinner here. I would always ask for the trout (done in may different ways).

It's a beatiful place, well located, great ambience. The food was good, really good, the price is fair, you pay for the place and not just the food. Unfortunatly my visit was disturbed by a very loud kid, the parents didn't even care about there...kid (a 7 years old ) shouting every time, but after 2 waitress asked to keep the things more quiet, they started to try, in vain, keep the kid quiet.More
