We went last week for the all you and eat pizza and crepes. The food was delicious and the service good. There was a waiting line to get in but it moved quickly and it was worth the wait.

My fiance is a pizza-holic and while I didnt come to visit Rio to eat pizza (after all, we're from New York), this place is definitely an EXPERIENCE like nothing we've ever had! We tried about 10 different pies (anything from chicken and cheese, to jalepeno cheese, four cheese and all in between)...all delicious and we didn't even know that... More

I went to the Ipanema location twice in four days. I found the food to be tasty, the staff to be very attentive and the price to be very reasonable.

Food quality good.Restaurants are clean and efficient. A little expensive and slightly soulless. The one in Ipanema is the best..good place to go if you need some salad and vegetables (not always the easiest things to find eating out in Rio)

It is a restaurant food by the pound. Only to eat, eat and go. Do not make this one program. The environment is cold, the service is weak and food is palatable. eat fast and go away. the price is high for the quality of food. Good for a lunch during the week.

I go to the Jardim Botanico location most often. It is spacious, attractive and the food is quite good. Only Couve Flor is better in this category, and Frontera is much more trendy and spacious than is Couve Flor. Service is excellent.
