Excellent steak!!! Yeah I hear Gaucho down the street is better, but they like theirs allot more price wise. I would come here for the better price any day. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the restaurant. I enjoy a perfectly seasoned and cooked Argentinian steak each time. For those of you who are from America, but live here you... More

Stopped off here for a lunchtime snack one day and enjoyed it so much we came back later in the week for dinner. The starters were great - goats' cheese panacotta and cheesy bread roll bites were excellent. We opted for the steak on a lava stone for main - great idea as you decide when your steak is 'done'....

Went once for a drink and few starters and was so impressed went back for dinner a few days later. Highlights were the goats cheese panacotta, the cheasy bread snacks and the steak cooked on the lava stone. When the steak comes out simply flip it a couple of times, sear the edges and you have a fantastic rare to... More

Had some quick dinner here yesterday. Just something ordinary: steak with grilled vegtables. The food was not outstanding but it was good. Did enjoy the dinner but then again also do not see it as anything special. Staff are very nice and the location is good. They have a nice terracce.

The food was excellent, the steak perfectly cooked and the garlic prawns tasty. However, even here, as in many other restaurants in Bratislava, they clean off your plates as soon as you eat that last piece on your plate, not waiting for the rest of your party to finish. Very short time between courses. Be aware that in part of... More

Steak on lava stone was simply superb. However quite pricey. For one-time Bratislava visit I would definitelly recommend it!

We chose the Rio over a nearby Argentinian steakhouse before our return coach to Vienna and I'm so glad we did! We'd stopped earlier for drinks and liked the atmosphere and attentive staff, so decided to go back for our meal. All 8 of us only chose mains as the portions looked really big! 2 had the delicious prawns, whilst... More

Restaurant have a great location and was easy to get to however the food although it was good it was expensive. If you want a steak go to this place but don't expect you to be cheap.
