It’s impossible not to fall in love with this restaurant. The decor is amazing, original and really romantic.
My boyfriend and I had a great time there. A good tip is to stay on the upper floor and have dinner at those lovely low tables with pillows. The food is quite exotic and very tasty.
This place's food is described as a contemporary combination of Asian, European, and Latin-American influences. It was my favorite restaurant while on my Brazilian vacation and I went there many times. I liked to sit outside.
I remember looking at the menu and thinking that the other daily specials on the other days sound good too. My favorite special was Samosa, tartar, white fish ceviche and tapioca, and salmon sashimi with passion fruit sauce, ginger and ciboulette served with a curry couscous. Their menu has Portuguese on one side and English on the other, which is great for tourists. The lovely, even sexy ambiance is also a highlight of the place.

They are called “motels”, but this is a euphemism – they are places where you go to have sex and pay by the hour. I first thought they were sleazy, but that was before I went to one. In fact, they are frequented as much by married couples as they are by illicit lovers and can be as romantic as you want them to be. At the top end, like at VIP’s Motel, the rooms have a wonderful ocean view, a pool, sauna and jacuzzi, as well as disco lights, sound system, TV, mirrors on the walls and ceiling and a large room service menu.
