“Great place to eat portuguese food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

The dishes made with cod fish are really great. Dna Henriqueta, the owner, helps you to choose between many delicious options. You fell like being at home with her.

“Typical (and great) Portuguese Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2012

It is not a place all tourists coming to Rio or Niteroi would go as it is not well known to everybody, thus I'm really happy to work close by!
If you're looking to such a typical Portuguese Style with a great reception, that's the best place to go nearby.

“The Best Portugueese Food In Brasil”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2012

Everything is perfect. From the "Bolinho de Bacalhau" appetizer to the Digestive "Vinho do Porto". Ask for the "Cherne com molho de camarão e Batatas Mediterrâneas" or the Shimp Rizotto as entree. For Dessert, the "Manjar" or the "Natas do céu" are the best. Dona Henriqueta and Alexandre will make you feel as you´re at your own home. Your, portugueese one, of course.
