    The review from Veja is quite accurate. It has a good view of the Bay and Ilha Fiscal, and also a great view of landing aircraft at SDU. It is not known among tourists, but is packed with cariocas. Wonder of all wonders: it has free parking!

    Only concrete memory of the former Municipal Market Square XV, the tower is a historical construction. Rounded the hall that overlooks the Bay of Guanabara, colored by boats and the magnificent palace on Fiscal Island green. With all these attributes, the house walked threatening to close their doors in recent years. She was saved by new members, who assumed the business in 2008. Among them is Luiz Incao, former executive chef at the Copacabana Palace. After a reform promoted by the decorator Chicô Gouvea, the environment has been renovated, has won more light, but has not lost its original characteristics. Incao undertook to reshape the menu. With a focus on seafood, prepared foods kept without inventions, emphasizing subtle form of a modern presentation. The new proposal, this edition takes the prize in the category, is well represented by the fresh oysters at the entrances to the Lemon, coming from Santa Catarina (U.S. $ 45.00 a dozen), and the classic crab au gratin ($ 22, 00 unit). Among the entrees, the highlights are the seafood pesto sauce garnished with broccoli rice (U.S. $ 95.00) for two persons, shrimp sauce and champagne risotto with green apple and pinhole (U.S. $ 62.00) bras and codfish (U.S. $ 78.00).
