this is a small little bar / eatery. people spill out onto the street in front of the place and for some reason it's very popular and great fun. Hard to identify why it's such a cool place, but we visited here about 3 times in a week. The waiters are great and keep bringing the beer. the food is... More

We visited Jobi on the second last night of our holidays...what a great place! Lovely atmosphere, attentive and pleasant staff, cold beer and the best steak I've ever tasted! So good we had to go back the next night which was our last night in Rio but there was no way we could go anywhere else! We had obviously been... More

Went here last night with a few friends. Its quite compact, but the service was excellent. the beers were constantly flowing by the roaming waiters and the bacalhao fritters complimented the drinks really well. Mainly locals here, so usually a good sign.

This place is open for more than 50 years and the locals are still in love with it has the frequent lines of people waiting show. The premisses are simple and devoid of any special attraction but one comes here to drink beer and to eat "petiscos", the Portuguese version of tapas. The owners are portuguese and quite low keys...

We were just staying round the corner so visited this place. The first thing we noticed was that the place was very cramped and there were people standing on the pavement, it was that busy. We made our way to the bar and ordered 4 draught beers. They came in small wobbly plastic glasses and were more froth than beer.... More

Don't miss this restaurant when visiting Rio de Janeiro! It's a classic - fantastic food and great atmosphere! Their arroz maluco, picanha, farofa and filet com queijo no pão are a real treat!

Very popular with the locals, I have compared it in the past with The Lamb in Leadenhall Market in the City of London, not because it bears any physical similarity (far from it) but because it is popular with Rio's investment banker community. Excellent, creamy Brahma chopp, great bar snacks, simple but wholesome botequim fare and, unusually for Rio, friendly,... More

The Service is amazing...Especially from Rio which the service level is not that high . Good beer ( right temperature) and the snacks and feijoada are perfect.

Superb food and awesome service. One of my favourite eating joints in town!! The caipirinhas were perfectly made and serving was filling enough. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a good eating option around Leblon.
