The perfect spot to escape the heat and noise in downtown Rio. Inside this little oasis inside the historic Paço Imperial, the thick whitewashed walls keep out the bustle while you recharge your batteries in the cool shade of the inner courtyard. The restaurant serves mostly bistro fare as well as a daily lunch special that will set you back R$15 to R$26 (US$7.50-US$13/£4-£7) for a plate of roast beef with a side order of pasta, spinach crepes with a ricotta-and-mushroom stuffing, or a chicken filet with applesauce and sautéed vegetables. For a light snack try a quiche, a freshly made sandwich with grilled vegetables, or a cold-cut plate. Desserts are strictly European: Austrian linzertortes, German fruit strudels, and Black Forest chocolate cakes, all of which go so well with a Brazilian cafezinho.
