Candlelit tables, an intimate atmosphere, and delicious food combine to make Le Blé Noir a favorite spot for romantic types to bring their dates.

One indulgent choice combines French mushrooms with white wine, cream and palm hearts, while dessert fillings include seasonal fruits with toasted almonds.

Particularly good here are the vitaminas (fruit juices mixed with milk) and the acai, a type of Amazonian berry that is served icy cold with fruit and/or granola. Feeling peckish?

Weeknights the fixed price is R$49.20, going up to R$56.90 on weekends and holidays (kids 5 and under free, 6 to 10 pay half). The environment is family-oriented and includes a play center to keep the little ones busy.
