Please avoid if possible. The menu didn't properly describe any of our food & despite the waiter speaking perfect English he acted as though he didn't. The food was definitely the worst I've ever eaten.

We ordered the grilled fish with steamed veggies and the chicken parmigiana. Both dishes were huge - we could easily have shared one! The food was very good and the staff were lovely too. Would definitely recommend.

Visited this restaurant five times! both in the evening and at lunch as it was just around the corner from our hotel. On arriving in Rio feeling very tired we were looking for a restaurant with English on the menu as we didn't understand Portuguese. We were fortunate to be helped by Francisco, a waiter who spoke perfect English who... More

We looked at all the reviews and chose rondinellas as one of our two dinners here in rio. We were not disappointed the service was great, the portions giant (share the mixed churrasco with at least 3 or 4) and the food was tremendous. By the way three of us ate all the steak, chicken, sausage, beans, rice, fries we... More

I can´t follow the recommendations. The food is mediocre and uninspired, the staff is bored and not really interested in the customers. The view of the waves of Copacabana beach is the only reason to go to Rondinella´s.

We ordered meat which coasted 66 R$ for 2 persons and got a really big and very delicious portion served with rice in wine cheese souce and mushed potatoes. It was... More

Visited the Rondinella on 3 occasions. Good menu choice and reasonably priced considering it is just across the road from the Copacabana Beach. Staff were attentive and friendly and I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.

My girlfriend and I ate here twice during our stay in Copacabana. The food was excellent and the service was very great. The salmon and rice was extremely good. Both times our food was delivered very fast. There are a lot of options on the menu for one or two people. The price was much cheaper than most restaurants in... More

Ate here my first night in Rio. Food was gostoso (delicious) service was great. Waiter didn't really understand English and my Portugese is not very good but he tried very hard to understand me. In the end he did good.Had the fish with a Brazilian shrimp sauce that is to die for. Enough for two people. I left about half... More
