Família Paludo is one of the best restaurants I´ve ever been to. The meals are varied, they have everything from barbecue to Italian and Japanese. It is located in front of the São Francisco Beach and it offers beautiful views. Highly recommended. The only problem is the price; it is not cheap but it´s a worthwhile investment.

Paludo is one of those restaurants where you can have a great meal without paying too much. Many options in the buffet but you can order à la carte of you want. Great to go with the family because all will be satisfied with the options. Very crowded on weekends, so prefer weekdays or relax and have a beer while... More

The best option for your lunch with friends and/or family. I love the japanese buffet. You prepare your own plate as self-service system, but you can also choose from the menu. Parking área on the street or use a paid one in the corner.Very traditional restaurant, and space capacity became little, and they built a new one only in the... More

We have eaten at Paludos dozens of times as we have stayed in Niteroi for months at a time over the past twelve years. It became the yardstaick against which all the other establishments were measured. Although the price per kilo (your food is weighed for price) is higher than some other weight-based restaurants, the quality is so consistently high... More

During our private tour, our guide stopped here for lunch. They have a buffet with a large variety of hot and cold foods. Many Brazilian dishes and a sushi bar. I did not try the sushi bar. They weigh your food and charge accordingly and they keep a tab, so that you can make additional trips as not to crowd... More

This restaurant set the standard for service and quality of ingredients in Niterói. Certainly the big buffet has a variety of things that will match your taste and your mood. Also there's a great wine menu. As a neighbor of the restaurant, I go often. So follow my tip: Ask the waiters or the manager for something out of the... More

The por kilo concept is amazing and ensures really good value for money and the chance to try a really wide selection of excellent hot and cold dishes. This was our first taste of Brasilian food and we enjoyed trying small tastes of everything. Our 6 year old daughter loved it here too and she even tried octopus!!
