A Figueira Rubayat
Figueira Rubayat is remarked for serving some of the best steaks in town. The century old fig tree located on the center of the restaurant not only gives the name of the restaurant but is, apart from the food, the attraction of this restaurant. All the architecture of the restaurant was developed in order to fit the fig tree´s branches.
Other restaurant famous for its stakes. The menu features three traditional barbecue schools: Argentina, US and Brazil. The unique kobe beef, extracted from Japanese Wagyu cattle, is one of many star dishes of this restaurant. The “picanha”, a typical Brazilian cut from the top rump near the back of the cattle, is also a great (not to say mandatory) order. The wine list is equally attractive, with 400 labels selected the choice of connoisseurs.
