Rio Winter temperatures prevented us from savoring the escargots, present in the menu, but the "chèvre chaud" salad was copious and compensated for foregoing the escargot. The canard (duck) was better than the one served in some of the best Parisian restaurants. The blackberry sauce was exquisite and served as a lesson on how to combine tastes. Concentrating on the sauces of each dish, including dessert, one is led to recognize that sauces are definitely part of the French cuisine but the heavy ones are absent from Chef Jopert creations.

For some time now, the chef David Jopert has been very present in this excellent bistrot. Actually, the name is l’Atelier du cuisinier. Typical ambiance, small and cosy, good service, excellent food.try the quenelle de poisson, steak tartare, baba au rhum. Splendide! Superb! On se sent en France! Bravo le Chef!

We were a party of six. I was quite pleased with all of the dishes that were served and everyone commented on how delicious the food was and the details of the presentations. The service was excellent. The only suggestion that I would make is that for a French chef, the wine list could be a little more extensive. However, we were able to order two bottles of Sancerre which is fairly scarce in restaurants in Brazil.

A very good taste of the French Cuisine in Rio, serving lots of delicious French specialties. Some good option of the Menu to be tasted and excellent desserts. It is just situated in one of the neighbourhoods of Rio, Ipanema. Prices are a bit high!
