Excellent dinner, very efficient service, terrific atmosphere but prices are absurdly surreal! Greed should have a limit!

I just had lunch with a big group and I found the restaurant very nice in terms of crowd, food and service. I had the cod and it was nice but most dishes looked very good.

Rio is a city with very few options for business dining; this is one of the few exceptions. It is an old restaurant and is in need of an upgrade. The benches have stains and the decorations are dated. Nevertheless, it is a pleasant room on a corner with numerous windows, which makes the ambience airy and attractive. The privileged... More

It is a very nice place and great point to escape from the the rain and hard traffic on the way back from downtown to Zona Sul. A bit expensive, but excellent food.

I like the restaurant because of the proximity to my place and relatively quiet compared most Brazilian restaurants. The waiters are very nice and welcoming. My favorite meal here is the lamb while I will go for a fish as a second option. I will recommend this place for any couple looking for a quiet place to dine.

They serve the best Osso Buco in the world. Served with açafron rice. Start with a heart of artichoke seasoned with oil sal and lemon AND for dessert ask for a slice of pinapple.

I decided to take my host and his wife out to a nice restaurant toward the end of my three week visit to the UFRJ, and he suggested Alcaparra, which was a short walk from my apartment in Gloria. We arrived on time (8 pm) and the restaurant was mostly empty though it was a working day. I ordered a... More

Had launch there. Ordered two main plates, one beer and one water. Lobster was hard and cheese cover was not indicated in the menu. Fish turned out to be sweet! Waiters tried to push us several stuff we did not ordered. Really a deception with a 250 reals bill.
