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.

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
