If you're in Rio, this Meza Bar is a must. The food is great and service is attentive. I'm a vegetarian and they were very accommodating when I asked them if I can have the quinoa salad with no shrimp and cheese. My friend had their signature dish - risotto - which apparently is 'to die for'. The food is... More

Although we live in Rio de Janeiro it took us a few years to check this place out. As friends had told us the place always fills up early we went on a Friday night quiet early (around 8 pm) and were hapy to find a table. We were with a group of friends and ordered several drinks and loved... More

Tattoo chick at the front needs to go home when she's tired and really shouldn't refer sourly to guests as gringoes when they're struggling with the language at the bar. Even more so when the place is quiet. Either this place sucks to work at or some of the staff have had a really bad day. Hope the food is... More

The waiter didn't not speak a word of English, Vicky came back went though everything on the menu and have recommendations. Decided on three tasting dishes each... More

We were there for the Rio burger fest and we were nicely surprised by this trendy restaurant-bar hidden in Humaita neighborhood, offering a cool atmosphere, good service and delicious burgers. Mezza bar features a tasty and original menu and exotic cocktails, great place to go with friends!

I went to Meza Bar with my husband and friends to eat special burger from Rio Burger Fest. Bar was crowd and we had to wait more than 1 hour to have a table. This is a lively place where drinks are very good and snacks made very carefully and delicious. The waiters are friendly but sometimes they seemed to... More

A few months ago, we went to this bar and had a terrible service. A waitress with a bad humour served us (no attention at all on the table) and to be honest, the bar is not the cheapest around in Botafogo to have such a poor experience. However, we went back and to our luck, we were served by... More

Went with two friends visiting from the US. We were not impressed, especially because of the weak drinks. Though the waiter was friendly, but when my friend paid the bill at the end with a large bill, which he took and said Thanks! and then never came back with the change. That was unfortunate because we left with the impression... More

This was my second visit to Meza Bar and I love this place. It is now my favorite bar in Rio. Awesome drinks, tasty food and nice ambience. Service could a bit better. The waitress took forever to come to our table, but it was minor problem compared to whole experience.
