When you make the trek from Rio to Niteroi, you hope for something special. In this sense, I guess you can say we were underwhelmed. We went on a Saturday with friend who live in Niteroi and raved about the restaurant. It is supposed to be a Uruguayan style meat place. Having lived in Uruguay, I can assure you that... More

Decided to join a friend for dinner and was not disappointed! Wanted steak and a good glass of wine, found out on Wednesday you buy one bottle you get a second one for free. Good deal! Great choice of food and wines, the place and staff are nice too. Big fire place they use to prepare your food. Highly recommended.

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
