The view to Botafogo Bay and Sugar Loft is awesome. Be sure to try one of the tables next to the window. Food is excellent! there offer a large variety of dishes and the major concern is what are you having first and not eating too much!! Going there is always a good choice!

We organised a business event with those people during the world cup and they are not to be trusted!!! we mistakenly over paid some services and we have been trying for over 6 months to get our money back, they do not want to provide any proper invoices and do not reply when you ask your funds back. This all ends up has a very bad experience!

It's not easy to get there, since you will find several mall escalators on the way...
But it definitely worth the effort!
A terrific view from Botafogo bay, with Sugar Loaf Mountain in front of you can grant a very relaxing experience, while you try a good and affordable food.

Granted, you do have to make your way up, up, up through the mall, escalator after escalator, wending your way through crowds...but the journey is worth it. With every seat having a view out over the bay at Botafogo and out to Sugar Loaf Mountain, you may be tempted to forget the food. However, the friendliness of the staff, the helpfulness of the restaurant manager [they have menus in English] and the tasty food itself bring you home to the relaxed dining experience of Brazil. Try the delectable empanada-like appetizers with cheese and shrimp. Then go on to a meal of fish stew cooked and served in an iron pot and indulge yourself with savory flavors, vegetable and local fish served over rice with manioc flour. It is truly a way to immerse yourself in the flavors of this Marvelous City. If you left yourself any room for dessert, you must try the Romeo and Juliet - a delightful concoction of a custard-y ice cream swimming in a guava sauce. Yes, you will have to nap after this, but oh so worth it.
