This has to be one of the best restaurants in the Barra shopping centre. The decor is stylish and elegant and we saw quite a few office people having their lunch here. There is a wide selection of food. We had the cod and as we don't eat olive oil, it was prepared slightly different especially for us. It was... More

Nice dinner at Salitre. Food was very good and we had a long list of wines to choose. We could hear good music there too.

Another good restaurant in terms of food but with deficient service. Waiters sometimes seem to have more important things to do other than serving the tables. Prices (especially for wines) are again too high.

I like - and frequently dine or have lunch here - and I´m always satisfied with the food and the service. The winery is one of the best in Rio de Janeiro and the prices are not excessive. I recommend it.

Pleasant & modern ambient, very good service and an excellent contemporary food. We can recommend a grilled beef steak or a duck. The dessert was outstanding too, with a real whipped cream! We will surely come back.

The new Salitre Restaurant in Ipanema, now at Rua Barão da Torre, 632 (Tel.: 2540-5719), is under the famous Chef Christophe Lidy's impeccable supervision. In an old house dating from the beginning of the 20th Century, totally refurbished, you'll find one of the best restaurants in Rio de Janeiro. Great food, formule prix-fixe for lunch, friendly service and a good... More

This restaurant, in Barra Shopping - Barra da Tijuca is very good for those who love wines. They have an excellent cellar and the chef now is Christophe Lidy, famous for the wonderful food we can taste there. The place is also very well located because we can shopping at the biggest shopping in South America (more than 500 stores)... More
