The restaurant serves high quality food, with a nice interior. I really had a good lunch, but the price is a premium compared to restaurants locals will consider.

Went there for lunch with 25+ people. A bit on the expensive side given it's in the business district, but the food is worth the money. A large selection of Brazilian and international dishes, good size portions.

Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born.
With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical
buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living
proof that the old and the new can live together
harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where
all major companies house their offices. However, the
