Good location, nice atmosphere. Staff is very friendly and the beer flows ice cold. The menu is pretty rich for a bar. The price is fair. A it noisy if you are looking for a quiet meal, but it is an authentic local buteco.

This is one of those typical Rio places where locals hang out. Worth a visit for a beer and get the local feel. The original one is in Flamengo and gets packed on thirsday night. Def worth a visit.

My first visit to Belmonte was with a friend who is a Carioca - the place was very busy ( it usually is) . We were seated right away and I ordered a dark beer. It was wonderful- icy cold and with a sweet taste- my friend was driving- so she drank juice. We ate the little balls made of... More

We went to different restaurants from fancy to more simple but Belmonte overall gave me the best enjoyable evening. It’s looks like a bar where you can eat tapas food. Open setting for just two or a group. Will be busy noisy and not the most romantic restaurant. The reason to go there is the nice atmosphere with a lot... More

Beautiful people between the age of 25 - 40 (I think more than 60%). Usually men outside standed drinking... More

I just spent a good time with a friend at this lovely bar. We had chopp (draught Pilsener) and empadas. It was all great. Great time in a simple and good place...

My place is closer this "boteco" and I think the best place to a very good cold beer. You can go, drink beer at the sidewalk and appreciate the best of Rio... the view!!!

This is the best "boteco" franchise in Rio de JAneiro IMHO. That simple, their crab cakes are delicious, their beer is ALWAYS ice cold and their waiters as fast as they can be.

Perhaps one of my favourite "botecos" in Rio de Janeiro. I'm a great fan of the many small dishes like the tapas in Spain. Belmonte has a great variety of food and small dishes and until now I've never been disapointed with the quality of the food. The atmosphere is hectic the waiters very busy. However, the quickly spot thirsty... More

Eat the black bean dish. It is great quality for the money. There are also vegetarian dishes. All ingredients are fresh.
