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.

Now this finally was a quite perfect experience. Not a single mistake, staff has a great attention to details and your needs. It's in the city center so prices are sure higher than the average. Giving it 4.5 stars. I had a buffalo mozzarella for starter - 5* (hate this word but it was delicious!) and my first paella -... More

Located in an area of architectural interest within a cobbled square in the old part of the city and is in walking distance of many of the quality Hotels. This is a lovely restaurant/bar with a Brazilian dining theme. One of the specialties is the Lava Stone menu: Meat or fish cooked and served on a stone with a choice... More
