Always busy place and seems to be very popular with locals. The Acai, though super fattening, is delicious. The juices are good as well. The servers are pleasant and friendly. Indeed an institution in Rio.

You can count on Polis Sucos for a quick lunch break from the beach. The juices are great (I enjoyed the tutti fruiti), and the chicken sandwich and cheeseburger were a hit for us! Way better than fast food, and just as fast!

I've had an acai smoothie almost everyday I was in Rio. It's the best place for it compared to some other stands along the beach. Other fruit juices are also delicious. I tried their burger and it was a mistake...you're better off going to Burger King or McDonald's. Go here for fruit juices and smoothie. Go elsewhere for food.

I frequently go to Polis Sucos since I was a little kid. Nothing has changed since the 70s. It's a place to drink and enjoy a fresh juice and a sandwich after the beach. The only negative point is the price, well above average you expect to pay.

My husband and I were in Rio for a 5-night stay and we ate/drank at Polis Sucos at least once a day! We couldn't find anything that we liked better. We tried all of the juices, although it was hard not to get the mango/passionfruit every time! We ate grilled cheese, cheeseburgers, tuna, and the filet sandwich. All were excellent,... More

A great "Brazilian Experience"! You will feel local on the first time. A few tips: Ask first, pay later. Is the right way. Choose a fruit juice just looking at them in front of you, anyone is grab! If you do not like it just say so, the owners are gonna give another choice and will not charge you!

Polis have won awards for their suco's over the past few years. Their attitude is professional and quick and they always have a good variety of fresh fruits for juicing. They also do a a reasonable bacon sandwich if you're missing home. They're based on various street corners in Zona Sul.

Polis Sucos is an obligatory pit stop, if you're in Ipanema. The juices are all made from fresh fruits and all are delicious. The sandwiches are also marvelous and you can order any combination of fruits to your juice. Try Caju with Orange or simply stick to the mango juice: impeccable !!!
