Fodor's Review

This pricey but much-loved establishment is famous for its flawless rendering of Portuguese classics, including many cod and lobster dishes. The couvert (R$29) includes tasty cod-and-potato balls, seafood rissoles, and imported cheeses. Seafood dishes are by far the best options. The chef prepares the shrimp cocktail simply but elegantly, and the vast seafood risotto is a knockout. The wine list is impressive, if predictably expensive, and the knowledgeable sommelier is always on hand to give tips on food and wine pairings; service is top-notch.
