Awesome food - interior ok

This is a great place for a business lunch. The restaurant is inside a mall, hence limited daylight. The service is good and the food is awesome both the fish and the meat.

Eça is a great option, if no the best, for business lunches in the center of Rio, The food is really good with many international flavors and a strong french influence. The menu offers many different options of seafood, meat and pasta. The starters are very creative and the desserts are worth saving space for. It is also worth listening... More

Italian food, cool place, with outstanding service. This restaurant is hidden on the basement of a downtown jewelry called H Stern. Very expensive, but clients love it!

One of the best restaurants I'ce been. Worth the price (eaten @ €500 euros in Europe where food was not even closer to what I got at Eça), regarding service: it's Rio de Janeiro! It's cultural for them being a like that. Don't expect a "carioca" waiter to be like an England waiter - I'm Brazilian myself so I can... More

The location in the basement of H.Stern is strange. No windows, loud businessmen. My main complaint:: ordered dessert and was in conversation. I didn't notice that a small tray of chocolates arived until the waffle was served. I thought it was part of the dessert. The bill came and there was a charge for the chocolates. It was not the...

The restaurant Eça, at Rio de Janeiro downtown is a must! The service is great, the food is 100% and it has an excellent wine list. I ate a cassoulet of fish with vegetables and herbs that was excellent. I also tasted the magret duck; I believe that was the best I ever tasted. The atmosphere is charming and reserved.... More

This is one of those places where they make you feel special and at home at the same time. The waiters are friendly and make intelligent suggestions. The wine waitress is helpful and even talks cost-benefit. The food is excellent and beautifully prepared but not at all fancy. It´s expensive but one of those places where you don´t feel you´ve...
