Allow me to share with you the taste of the best Coque au Vin in Rio de Janeiro... a newly opened French Bistro restaurant in the historical part of Rio close by Palacio Tiradentes and Praça Quinze de Novembro you'll find the most authentic French kitchen where the food actually TASTES FRENCH... and at very reasonable prices - twenty something to thirty something.
At Veja the review was actually quite fine - the journalist loved the price, enjoyed the food but was a bit so so with the service. However, I'VE eaten there TWICE - I can only say NOTA Protected content service, yes, lacks a bit of professionalism - but what the heck they are so kind so who cares if a Brazilian girl cannot pronounce a French dish without an accent...).
Go there, tell your friends and watch out - you'll get addicted rapidly.
