French cheese by candlelight at this buzzing bistro
Catherine Balston/Time Out
This cosy, candle-lit bistro named after Sherwood Forest’s most famous bandido, with antique-frame mirrors and an intimate outdoor space. Don’t miss the Sherwood Special sharing platter (R$62) laden with pâté, creamy French cheeses, salad and dried fruits and nuts. The mussels in cream and white wine sauce (R$36) easily feeds two, and other hearty dishes include cassoulet and boeuf bourguignon. And if, like Friar Tuck, you should wake up with a sore head of a Sunday, their brunch (R$36, until 4pm) is a good hair of the dog with either a Bucks Fizz or Absolut Pepper Bloody Mary included. Reservations needed for Friday nights.
