We had a super-attentive waiter who told us all about the different cuts of meat, and the difference between the Argentinian and Brazilian picanha. We had the Argentinian picanha for two (plenty of food, by far), linguiça, and a wonderful salad. Prices were reasonable. I would definitely go back. The only (very minor) drawback is that they don’t offer dessert, so as not to compete with a really good pastry shop down the street. (Or an equally good ice-cream shop right next door.) Very nice restaurant - recommended!

Pleasantly surprised by this restaurant! The steak was excellent and the caprinhas well prepared. I highly recommend this restaurant and the waiter Fernando (I think that was his name)! He spoke a little English with me too :)

The place is a real argentinian "bodegón". Wine served in cup with a small portion of delicious crunchy and salty peanuts, magnificent meat and delicious side dishes. It's also located in a VERY charming place, my favorite in Arraial D'ajuda, which is the Praça da Igreja (Church's Square). The waiter Marcelo, very kind guy, recommended me a black angus beef with homemade fries (not those horrible frozen ones, and they were delicious), chimichurri sauce, spicy white beans, farofa and vinagrete.

The meat was perfect, I barely needed a knife so soft it was. I don't think I've eaten such a delicious beef in Argentina, and I've been to Argentina many times. The price was absolutely fair, far from the abusive prices they charge for not-so-good food in the trendy Mucugê Street.

Highly recommended and I will definitely return. Best restaurant I've been in Arraial, hands down.

It's a good resteraunt by Brazilian standards. The steak was an Argentinian cut, which is always a treat in Brazil. About 25% fat which is annoying but that's how it usually is. Sides were ok. Nothing out of the ordinary. Would return if i wanted another steak. About 70 reias a head with a beer.
