The line of taxis and Ubers stopping outside the restaurant, where people are still dragging a "thank you" out of the car, attest to the truth of the facts: there are more tourists here than journalists. And sometimes, truth must be told, they know best what is good. This old restaurant, reinvented a few years ago by Brazilian Ivan Fernandes, is good. It has a world gastronomy in dishes like the moqueca shrimp risotto, the breaded scamorza with white turnip and pear or the lamb hamburger with wild rice.
Perfect for: a romantic dinner in an old room of an old mansion from the eighteenth century.
Must try: roasted aubergine, miso and pistachio caramel.
