Rio does not seem to be the place for fine cuisine. It is highly overrated and prices are mind blowing. But if you crave for a good and refined dinner, Roberta Sudbrack is the place to go. The cuisine is not very sophisticated but the ingredients are excellent and cooking is to perfection. Service and decoration are ok although not... More

This was supposed to be the highlight of our trip to Rio. Roberta was rated by some as one of the top ten restaurants in Latam. The place is small, modern and nice but it seemed to me like a good restaurant in a posh restaurant that serves mainly people living nearby. Menu is some how confusing because you have... More

We came here for lunch, it was quiet and service was OK for Rio. Here is why this is a 2 star review: The lunch menu has three options plus a set menu, so in total 6 items. How on earth can anyone be that lazy as to provide just 6 choices and then charge people so much money? The... More

I was disappointed by this restaurant. Most dishes were OK, some excellent (I particularly liked the beef diaphragm), and one was almost airline-quality. The desert of Brazilian sweets was unimaginative and no better than what you can find in any small town fair. The wine list is extensive with good options at different price points, but the drinks menu is... More

Dined here as a group of 3, we opted for the 3 course menu. The first starter arrived one hour(!) after we decided on our menu, the dishes that followed also took around 40 minutes between each. This glacial pace alone along with the slow service are enough to make what could be a great dinner boring. As for the... More

I don't understand why this restaurant has 3 stars... The food is ok, but nothing amazing, so it's really not worth what they charge you for. I will not return.

After arriving 25 min late for our reservation due to traffic they welcomed us warmly into the restaurant. We chose the five course tasting menu which was very good. The main course was steak. Note you only have a choice of starter so if the main isn't something you like I could see it being an issue. They had an... More

I had a great dinner experience there with the tasting menu. I had the best lamb ever and the whole dinner experience was superb. We had a chance to sit really close to the kitchen watching chef Roberta on action and that was a plus.

Friends booked this restaurant as they had heard great things about it. For starters the waiter pored the water all over the table after missing the glass. He did not wipe it up until I had to ask him to do so. We were really looking forward to a aperitif and when we asked we were informed they did not... More
