    The food taste and quality could be improved. Plus point: The waitress was friendly.

    The waiter was alone. 1 person for the entire place. It took me 40 minutes to get the first drink. They were sold out of some snacks that I really wanted to try. The main course was good and the place is beautiful but I would never be back.

    The atmosphere is nice, there's music, soft lightning and a nicely decorated favela scene. The service was fine. The food was so so. We ordered the trio burger as a starter, recommendation! The beef and caesar salad were a disappointment. A lot of lettuce and dressing....

    The place is really nice and perfectly located. The food was incredible although (it was a football match day) they were a little bit slow.

    Cosy place off the busy street. Inside it feels like being away from the crowdiness outside, good place to be for a drink, chat, or feed

    Cool place to hang out and get a bite to eat. The staff are attentive and courteous, which is unusual for the Leidseplein area, and quick despite having only two front of house staff on shift. The spicy ribs went down well, although the Jamaican Jerk Chicken was a bit bland, with a fairly generic set of spices under use. That said, it was a nice overall experience, in a trendy bar with some extravagant decoration adorning the location.

    Great service! Unfortunately not really satisfied with the kitchen.. wouldn’t really recommend this place to be honest.

    The restaurant has a Brazilian name, but what they serve is basically not Brazilian at all. A bit pricey and toilet was not so clean. Waiters were friendly and polite, though.

    Great food in a very unique ambience, which apparently turns into a club later at night. Service was perfect. One of the best restaurants we have visited in Amsterdam. We will come again for sure!
