The drinks, service, atmosphere and food here were very good. I was in Bratislava with a Carioca and he was tickled pink at the presence of a Brazilian restaurant in Bratislava.

We had the pleasure of dining in this restaurant in late June and were very happy we stopped in. If you get a chance to dine here make sure to order the filet cooked on the lava stone. It comes to your table right on the stone sizzling away and you get to decide when a piece looks cooked to... More

After a long day of sightseeing, this was the perfect way to end the day. I sat in the covered area outside watching the quiet rains. They had lovely music playing and the service was friendly, attentive and yet not disturbing. The pasta with seafood was perfect and the Slovakian red wine a pleasant delight. Highly recommend the place.

This restaurant presumed to be Brazilian cosine like. In fact we are from Brazil and living in Europe since 2012, every attempt to go to a Brazilian like restaurant was frustrating. This one has a very good steak indeed considering the general standard around Europe. The meat is served in a lava rock which keeps the heating for longer and... More

Having been to Bratislava before, I know that the local fare is not my favorite (especially since we live in Vienna and live the life of pork and potatoes). We decided on Rio for lunch, the outdoor dining area was comfortable, the service was excellent and we all enjoyed a light lunch. The greek salad was whole leaf with tomato,... More

We came here for dinner on a Friday night and the staff greeted us so nicely and we were relieved that they spoke incredible English which saved us from an embarrassing attempt to try to speak Slovakian! The food in this restaurant was very good and there was lots of choice on the menu. We ordered a spicy chicken and... More

Dined here on Sunday night and it was very busy. The service was great as was the outside area. We both had burger so can only comment on that but portions were good and full of flavour.
