You can only come here when you enter the ford. But still there are locals and tourists comming to this restaurant. Nice few over the sea and the beach. Breakfast and coffee were good.

Take a taxi to and from the door. But don't miss this one. Every country has one of those. Finland has its Aschan. We have Colombo. Awesome. A reminder of the richness of colonization.

Very nice atmosphere, it is a time travel to the 19th century. Very nice food and service. Returning to Rio, for sure I will be back to the Confeitaria Colombo.

This is such a beautiful spot that shows off old Rio at the highest level. They have got so much yummy food available. When you go there, don't forget to take your camera!

This restaurant is in the heart of the finantial center of the city. It is an old building with classical decor and great service. Food is ok, but amazing desserts!

Enjoyed afternoon tea here. Dessert were wonderful. Many people ordered fruit and desserts. But some people ordered sandwiches and savories. Order a mix of both. The empanadas and the quidin are delicious. Great place to relax and people watch.

This is a traditional teahouse and restaurant located in downtown Rio. Very elegant and with a reasonably good cuisine. It is worth visiting and having lunch there (there is a buffet upstairs which I recommend best). The decor is begining 20th century.

A very good restaurant and place to be. The prices are good and food tasteful. After walking downtown, this is the place to have lunch or even just a tea. Highly recomend this.

This art deco restaurant/coffee house is a must when visiting the old centre. The building dates from Rio`s belle epoque period and the decor is just stunning - just walk in, sit down and breath history while drinking a coffee and eating one of those delicious pastries! Good to know is that they also have a branch inside the Fort... More

Had afternoon tea here - really fantastic- cheese sandwiches were a little dry but everything else was really good - you can definitely share one between two people even the smaller teas are enough for two people - but if you want a treat, get one for yourself!
