I had read reviews prior to our visit. I was delighted to find they were all true. The Picanha is a beautiful dish. Loved the black beans...what are they called? The meat was tender and the fried banana tantalized my tastebuds. They serve the dish until you can't have any more.
The moist chocolate cake was delicious!

I loved the ambiance and tge music played was just right! The restaurant is well place on a busy corner.

Waiters were friendly though speaking English with them was a struggle.

Just wish there was Wi-fi and proper signage outside - finding it was a struggle.
