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.

Unique decor, with statues and portraits to bring you to 18th century. Excellent service and food. Go with your couple or significant other.

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.

Located on the touristic and vibrant Rua do Lavradio, Santo Scenarium shares room with several other restaurants. The place itself has an interesting atmosphere combining its antique decor to live music performances, such as a full jazz orchestra. We were in a group of 4 friends and stick with the appetizers, which was a good choice. The food was great... More

We were treated to a rude way. Food is very expensive and the food is not so good. The owner is not educated enough to work with clients and serve food. keep an eye on your bill, the restaurant usually charge more things without being consumed. Always check how many beers you drank. i Never will come back in this... More

The setting,in Rua do Lavradio,is very charming and nice - a small closed paved road with small painted houses and the typical antique stores, with many bars and restaurants with their small wooden chairs and table, music coming from the insides of every one of them and, just to stay there in serenity,an enormous bouncer that prevent anyone from disturbing...
