Very nice experience at this cozy restaurant in the heart of Friburgo. My wife and I shared a goat cheese and figs salad that was delicious. The cheese is prepared on the oven with a thin crust which gave it a different texture. For the main dish I ordered a trout "new clothes" (truta roupa nova) with thinly sliced potatos... More

Very pleasant place, honest and flavored dishes. Regarding other restaurants, this is pricey, but worth the visit. Ask for wines, they have good ones

Excellent tasteful dishes, from seafood to meat...welcoming owners, great menu and tasteful gastronomy! I recommend without any restrictions. They change menu twice a year and keep the most of clients ordered dishes in la carte. Bon appetit!

There is a variety of meat, poultry and fish in the menu and the wine list is fairly comprehensive. The restaurant is located in a... More

Trip Advisor reviewers are a special group of people! We were half way between Buzios and home and it was definitely time for lunch. Where to eat in Nova Friburgo? At the #1 restaurant of course. The reception was a good indicator of what was to come. The first course of lightly breaded shiitake mushrooms with Parmesan cheeses was fantastic... More

Wow, what a revelation. We had given up on the restaurants serving the same food. This restored the faith. The atmosphere is excellent, kids are welcomed and the choice from the menu is a nice eclectic mix. Visit the cellar. Even this is reason to go by itself. I cannot advise if they do deliveries or late night. We went... More
