unique food, great drinks

Not a lot around this restaurant but it's worth a trip. a nice mix of dishes and tasting items - all were good and fresh. It's a great place to go and order a handful of small items to try. there's a pretty substantial cocktail list. The atmosphere is kind of louge-y. good experience overall... read more

Amazing welcome. Rarely have I had such a delicious drink. Clearly the place to go for mezze. Service is very friendly ! I recommend this place for a laid back, chill atmosphere.

This is a great bar to have a drink with friends. The food is great and worthwhile. Just don't come here expecting to hook up with other people as most people here are couples.

Very pleasant place with great drinks, tasty small plates and fair prices. Not exactly cheap but worth the price. Waiters are also nice and friendly.

I'd say this place is a classic example of prioritising style and surface over the things that really matter (service and food). The interior has a lot going on with all kinds of designy flourishes - sometimes less is more guys! But the service was slow and confused. The drinks were fine but the burgers were pretty mediocre and way... More

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

Found this place in lonely planet and turned up on off chance we could eat here. Although we had no booking the hostess Vicky found us a table. Great venue and fairly busy. 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
