Very good food, ambiance and music
I loved everything about this restaurant. The decoration is so cozy, the service was very good and the food was delicious. The place is owned by a couple that really put themselves into it. The husband is a gifted pianist and the music was great. Highly recommend.

This little and cosy restaurant escapes from the commonplace at Petrópolis area. The chef Renata prepares a sequence of small and delicate dishes in a perfect way. Simply delicious. A hidden restaurant, a hidden gem.

Slowly service, expensive and small portion
Expensive and small portion! The cheese and meat Fondue's are ok but the prices are really high and it's few quantity. The meat Fondue as a marketing of really SWISS, is nothing Swiss style. Salt Stone is Brazilian Style, but the taste is not bad. The service is too slowly. Next time we'll look for better opportunities in Itaipava or Petropolis.

Great atmosphere. Service needs improvement. Burger so so. Too much glamour, poor quality.
Restaurant is considered a upscale pizzaria with plenty of good reviews and great social media. Place is nicely decorated and it is very cozy. Unfortunately, I didn't have a good experience, but the patrons at my table did, so I am considering their opinions in this review. First red flag, I ordered and returned 2 regular caipirinhas that tasted like water with lime drops and ice. The waiter brought back the same caipirinhas with a little more cachaça (Brazilian rum), my wife trying to be kind took one of them but the taste was still awful so I returned mine for good.For dinner, I have ordered the Matilda burger due to the concept of a burger cooked inside pizza crust with "canastra" cheese, pineapple, etc. I was unlucky: patty wasn't juicy, it was overcooked and heavy, not seasoned at all, so tasteless that I couldn't describe which meat it was made of. Pineapple was uncooked and hard and the combination with a burger wasn't smooth. Other ingredients and cheese were in so small quantities that were hard to find inside the crust. Pizza crust was ok. The waiter misplaced my order for a salad and brought french fries instead. They charge your credit card applying the "suggested tip" automatically but they avoid providing the legal mandatory invoice which need to be requested. Prices are very high. USD16 for a burger and USD19 for a 5 inch pizza. I heard that the pizzas were good, but didn't try any.Olá,obrigada por sua avaliaçãoMesmo não sendo boa,(rsrsrs).Vamos analisar tudo que você nos relatou.Ficamos tristes que não tenha sido do seu agrado.Geralmente e você pode ver pelas avaliações ,a maioria dos clientes gostam e voltam na Matilda.Mas às vezes acontece .Venha de novo ,nos de mais uma chance.Adoramos o que fazemos e temos o maior carinho no preparo de tudo.A qualidade dos ingredientes ,do atendimento .Estou sempre presente e pronta para resolver tudo para que você cliente saia satisfeitoA nota fiscal sai do sistema no momento que é pago o valor .Vou instruir meus Garcons a não esperar pelo pedido da nota fiscal e perguntar se desejam e aguardar Ela é gerada automaticamente.Um abraço e torcendo para uma nova oportunidadeBeth

The best Japanese option in the region
I have eaten in this place several times and I have tried most of the other so-called Japanese restaurants in Petrópolis and this is, by far, the best one.Location is nice, service is good and friendly and the food is remarkable.Obviously, it isn't the cheapest option either, , but if you feel like eaten good Japanese food, this is the place.

Amazing food and service
The restaurant was quiet when we arrived as we tend to eat early when travelling with young children, but it quickly filled up while we were there. The menu had a good selection of steaks, pasta, risotto etc and they provided a good childrens selection. When the main courses arrived the steaks were huge - 2 big fillets served with a choice of side dishes. I had the filled pasta which was mouthwatering - the best I've had outside Milan. The chef / owner spent time with us explaining the different cuts of meat in Brazil and was happy to answer all our questions! A great experience overall - great food, service, ambience.
