Excellent choice

Located in Leblon, Plataforma is a very traditional place that serves excellent food with a great service. If you are looking for a restaurant specialized in meat, Plataforma is a safe choice.

For me - and for many others - Plataforma serves the best beef in Rio. The food is excellent. The place was preferred by Tom Jobim and his piano is still at the bar. Expensive, but very good. You choose the kind of meat you want and the side dishes. A "steak for 1" is big enough for 2. Let... More

I don't write about the show - it's a restaurant first. Talking food, this is a classic steakhouse and I've been going for nearly 20 years. Never disappointed and the atmosphere has only improved. Stick to steak, sides and red wine. Going again tonight! Sweet!

The show goes on with changes since 1978. First we had a dinner at downstairs and then the show was at upstairs and continued less than two hours. The dinner service was perfect and the restaurant was fine. The show clothes were stunning. We have paid 180 reals for dinner & show except drinks. We have privately come to the... More

Theatre is quite cheap and dingy looking - not classy at all. The costumes are brilliant. A few of the acts are less than desirable and the worst of all is the audience participation at the end for open mic time..makes you want to run and ask for your money back. Plus drinks are twice the price as anywhere else.... More

You sit in a dingy hall, get your picture forcibly taken then aggressively hawked to you for 20 reis. The show is a mish mash of what tourists think samba is with a martial arts demo thrown in. I think the performers themselves are good and they clearly try hard so kudos to them. My beef is with the whole... More

Run down location and the show was amateurish at best. One expects to see many girls in pretty outfits, but the majority of the show involved males performing random acts. Some gymnastics, some silly dancing, and ok music. This was a BIG waste of money and would have been more appropriate if priced at $25 at most.
