Universal Diner: humour and flavours on the menu

gastronomy

Created by chef Mara Alcamim, the Universal Diner is one of the most prominent gourmet addresses in the city.

With its kitschy decor composed of heterogeneous objects from gilded frames to retro fans, through Chinese fringed lanterns, two artificial banana trees and the body of a candy pink VW Beetle this place exudes a humorous atmosphere that is alone worth a visit.

Yet the greatest asset of the restaurant is the delicious cuisine prepared by Mara Alcamim, who offers filet steaks with pomodoro risotto, duck breasts with mandarin accompanied by parsnip purée and brie, or a rack of lamb with honey.

Despite the impertinence of the decor, here you will taste a cuisine that is nothing if not serious, in a lively atmosphere, where the chef comes to talk to you after dinner.
