Fodor's Review

A neighborhood favorite for more than three decades, this informal tavern serves excellent Northeastern cuisine in more than ample portions. Sun-dried beef is a popular choice among carnivores, and vegetarians will love the set meal of queijo coalho (grilled white cheese, similar to halloumi) with brown beans, rice, and seasoned farofa. Reservations aren't necessary, but the restaurant is always packed on weekend evenings. It's quieter at lunchtime, when you may

be able to occupy one of the two tables that have views down to Guanabara Bay. Though the friendly staffers are speedy, the service never feels rushed. Wine isn't sold here, but your waiter will happily uncork any bottle you bring.
