a better buffet by kg and also reasonably priced

I do not particularly like buffet but this is an easy way of getting fed when time is tight. The meat is better than expected as most meat in a buffer are overcooked but this one was not. Salad were also nice.

This is a kilo type restaurant, one of the 1st of it's style in Rio. Some like this one closed, but I guess it is still open because the food is really good. You can have a little of this and a little of that.

We stumbled upon this restaurant after paying the Jardin Botanico a visit. Normally I am not a big fan of buffet style restaurants, because it generates a greedy side in people, by shoving as much food as their plate carries, and after a couple of bites leave it. And go for a second round. In Brazil, however, you are charged... More

Upon telling my guide that I'm a vegetarian she suggested this place for lunch, and let's put it this way.. By having a little bit of everything that I could from the savoury options, I ran out of room for dessert! This place is a dream for vegetarians who are tired of limited options in a meat dominated region and... More

The place is a gem near the Botanical Garden. The food is great and the variety is amazing. Like many kilo restaurants in Rio, this one is a buffet where you´ll weight your plate and pay accordingly. The difference here is the quality of the food and the variety offered. Try to avoid the peak hour from noon to 1... More

I like this place for a simple lunch, in case you want a quality food fast food...this is a great option. The location is fabulous and if you want a good food and good price, the Couve Flor is one of the best Buffet in the city.

A great choice of meals (salads, pasteis, vegetables...), tasty food for reasonnable prices. Unfortunatelly, sometimes pasteis are a bit dry... But "bananas a milanesa" are the best thing I've ate here! You should really taste those ones.

Couve Flor is located conveniently close to a location I visit often, so I have been to the resdtaurant quite a few times. The food is of very consistent quality, everytime I really enjoyed the food. The selection is uneven: the salads and dessert buffets are quite rich and delicious, the grill stand offer two or three varieties, but the... More

If you have worked up an appetite while hiking around the Jardim Botanico Couveflor may be an option for you to consider. To get to Couveflor from the Jardim, exit through the rear gate at the end of Aleia John Wills. Couveflor s your slightly above average Brazilian buffet. It is certainly popular with the locals as there was a... More
