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

After being discouraged by a two hour wait to try the new restaurant in Barra, Pobre Juan, I've decided to go back to Ipanema and try Salitre, since recently under a new chef. In a city where meals are becoming prohibitive expensive, Salitre is a breeze. I ordered the lamb and my wife past with seafood, both excellent. Surprisingly, the... More

Some restaurants do look sophisticated on the outside, which leads you to think that the overall experience will be satisfactory, but there are always exceptions to the rule. My mother, my aunt and I had the same opinion about it. The waiter did not smile and seemed quite grumpy. I ordered tomato juice, he place the glass on the table... More

Terrific sommelier service, vast and excellent wine menu, good food (with description and suggestion in their own menu of possible harmonizations). One of the few restaurants in Rio where you can have a good wine at an affordable price.
