Last night my wife & I had a chance to dine without our teenage daughter - over time I guess this will be more frequent. Because my boss lives close to this restaurant, she highly recommended it. Now I will do the same.
First of all, the service is really above average (many of Brasilia's restaurants have to work on attention to detail and to the customer). An excellent team! Sorry didn't get any names down.
We were seated outside and though the varanda cannot be decorated as much as the interior, we still got to hear the lovely background music (covers of English-language pop classics) and as we went to the "well-hidden" bathrooms (they are behind large mirrors that give the place a much larger feel) we got to see the top-notch interior decoration.
We went during a "Restaurant week" for which there was an alternative degustation-menu with appetizer, main course and dessert. Unlike in some other places, the items on the special menu are served regularly, too, so we really got to experience their "normal" dishes and not just a "festival special".
First of all, I had something called Rebas, which are little hamburgers on doritos with red cabbage "sauerkraut" style - what a delicious starter! My wife isn't much into brie cheese, but gobbled down her bruschetas with brie and onions.
Then came the main courses - I don't recall recently eating a better meat than the ancho I was served with delicious potatoes. The sauce was a sweet-sour one with ginger and honey. It was perfectly made - very rare, almost raw, but still having all the taste of the sauce. Masterful!
My wife was delighted by the codfish (Bacalhau caponata) served on mashed sweet potatoes. And she's picky.
Finally, we didn't try the homemade ice cream cause both were eager to have the chocolate cake with berries. Besides not being too sweet, it was a delight to the eye and palate.
Last but not least, the Orfeo coffee/espresso, which I understand is not their regular coffee, was perfect!
Hope to repeat this lovely night out again!
