This restaurant is in Lapa a few doors down from the Rio Scenarium. It is a restaurant and bar with an upstairs and outdoors areas. The décor is an unusual mix which varies from old paintings and fixtures from churches to just old stuff with a religious theme, a bit odd. We ordered one starter and a Feijao to share... More

Across the street from Rio Scenarium, a good option if you arrive after 11pm, to wait for the line of Rio Scenarium to get smaller. cold beer and great snacks

Lovely place in terms of decor (old antique place), furniture and it has indoor and outdoor sitting but the food was average to good overall. More imaginative food and better attention to detail/quality of meat and fish could easily take the restaurant to the very good or even excellent spheres of restaurants. Wine list was good and service very helpful... More

We had lunch at Santo Scenarium because we were visiting the Lavradio fair on a Saturday. We have been here before and the food was quite good for an ok price. What we still had in mind is that the restaurant itself has a great flair since it's nicely decorated and inside an old building. Since it was Saturday lunch... More

Last week I had to spend 5 days in Rio and had the pleasure of eating here three times. Once was a sandwich, grilled eggplant and twice just appetizers. The food was very good, the service adequate and the music that came drifting down from upstairs wonderful.

It's a nice small place (compared to Rio Scenarium) with a good atmosphere and chill music, we went on what seemed jazz/bossa nova night... food was nice and so was the beer (Heineken draft!), caipirinhas were good and the bartenders were always asking if we wanted one more! I liked that it was cozy and not so crowded as other... More

I was shocked with the disrespect with the customers at this restaurant. We called in advance to make a reservation to see a band play. The person on the phone said that the band would start playing at 7pm and if we hadn't arrived by then our reservation would lapse. So I arrived together with my husband at 6:50pm, we... More

This restaurant caught my attention with its decoration with baroque angels and wall paintings. The food is also good and well served. The tables in front closed the package for a great atmosphere.
