This is a great restaurant. It features the best and realizable fresh oysters in the city: only on Fridays and Saturdays, the duck dishes are phenomenal. Excellent wine list, all in a great cosy, small, clean and French atmosphere. It's a little pricy! The French owner is always around checking the quality of food and service. Can't miss it!

Being French living overseas for 30 years I am very demanding on French cuisine outside of France. This was is an exception, food was excellent.

This bistrot looks like those ones in Paris. The food is pretty good and you are supposed to try a very delicious appetizer: "lambretas gratinadas ao molho gorgonzola". I only missed some acoustic music to make its atmosphere even better!!!!

Great place to have dinner, lounge ambiance and classy decoration. For professional or private dinners. If you order meat, the cooking point is the French way and not the brazilian way (be aware of that). Service is quite fast and efficient. Personnel seems to enjoy doing the service. I recommend
