Amazing harbour view – average dishes: Restaurant Lafayette (30. January 2016)

| March 30, 2016 | 0 Comments

The “Casquinha Classica de Siri, 250g” (24.00 BRL) was one of these dishes I had no clue about what I was ordering and while I did not know what to expect, I did not expect what I got. It was basically some kind of fish stew accompanied by their typical Brazilian flour. Besides not really knowing how to eat that, respectively combine the two, I ended up eating mainly the stew. It was fishy but actually not unpleasant in taste, however, it had something like fish flakes in it which made it a bit too crunchy for my personal gusto.


The “Atum Selado e Camarao Crocante (molho tare, pure de batata aromatizado com raiz forte e nira), 380g” (74.00 BRL) looked promising but it was actually just average. The tuna was cooked a bit too much for my personal gusto, and the breaded and fried prawns were super-crunchy and overly fried.


What is priceless though about the location is the view you get onto the harbour. Especially when the sun is setting, you have a marvelous view. Lovely!


Besides that the prices are rather steep for water (i.e. Agua San Pellegrino, 0,5L, 16.80 BRL) but fair for wine. Despite the fact that they apparently run out of the house wine, another bottle of a completely different wine was offered as a replacement and the same price was charged as for the original wine (20.00 BRL per glass).

The service is dedicated and very friendly, however, again I had to experience that English is not a language common to many in Brazil which makes the whole process sometimes a bit tricky. Overall, the place is average but the view is marvelous. Make sure you get a table by the window though!
