Gero is always a very good option - I went there a couple times when i was in Rio - and it has a nice romantic setting for a couples' dinner. The food is always good - daily handmade fresh pasta - and their wine list is very good. Service is very good too.

Our hosts were delightful and the entire evening was memorable. This stunning restaurant is comparable to world class restaurants anywhere in the world. The dining room is beautifully appointed and there is a lovely outdoor area surrounded by trees and greenery, hard to believe that you are in the midst of so much concrete. The service was attentive, the wine... More

This restaurant served us one of our best meals in Brazil. I ordered pasta with lobster and lemon sauce, and my husband ordered the filet mignon. For us, the prices were not at all high, as we are from Sweden / Denmark - and the kind of meal we were served at Gero would have cost 50% more there. Wonderful... More

The branch of Gero in Barra da Tijuca is well located with easy parking Vallet. The service is exceptional, especially the Maitre Maurice. New dining experiences have been tested and approved, especially goat cheese souffle, the confit duck with orange sauce and mashed potatoes special. Letter of very good wines especially the Italians from Tuscany and Piedmont.

All about food should be joyful Sad place- sad people- boring service Pretentious and average food Be ready to give your wallet your watch and jewels as very likely all your money wont be enough to pay the extorsion prices of the place

Traditional restaurant with new cosine. I love the risottos. Excelente place for a business lunch, where you have a fixed menu with high quality. A place to see and be seeing.

Just had dinner at Gero. Service was really good, staff was really professional.. Service started by bringging the "couvert" (basket of bread with a few spraeds), it costs 25 reais per person, and they do not ask if you want it. So be aware , and make sure to let them know if you dont want it. I was upset... More
