Not just in the restaurant, but as the... More

I wish the food and service had been commensurate with the beauty and standard of the place but sadly it was not - I had a moqueca de camarao and the shrimp were dry and tiny, as if they had been burned in the freezer for months before being cooked.... the rice served with it tasted like bad uncle ben's...

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 and the Bistro VIP breakfast (à la carte) was exceptionally good. Plentiful and delicious with... More
