Located in a charming turn-of-the-century house in the downtown district, this restaurant maintains an atmosphere of old Rio in its decor. The menu has Portuguese influences with the innovation of chef Joaquim Santos. Portuguese sausages and cheeses are a perfect appetizer to start followed by cod prepared in many styles, the most requested dish on the house. The rice with duck also makes a great choice. Don’t leave without trying the pasteis de nata, a delicate pastry originally from the monasteries of Portugal.
