A good lunch time option!!!

Good option on the beach - we had lunch here and the food was very nice. The service was good by brazil standards and the drinks were great. I did find it strange that they option at 1pm tho - thought that if they were serving lunch perhaps they should open earlier.

If there was something decent to benchmark Bar Astor against here, in Rio, I would give it a poorer rating. But there is really not much to expect in Rio in terms of stylish restaurants and bars - this one is just the most average of averages with a nice location and an overpriced menu for truly horrible food.

Although they don't speak English there are English menus. Good food for prices expected in this type of place. Akin to the Giraffe restaurants in the UK. Good for watching life pass by along the beach boulevard.

I really liked the Astor, the menu was brazilian with a french bistro twist. The decor was super cool, old style art deco with rustic furnishings. It was definitely the place to be as the sun went down, the outdoor space was crowd with young hipsters drinking cocktails. It's a great venue, easy to please menu with great views of... More

We recently dined in Astor, even though the location is great we really did not enjoy our meal, the service was nice enough it was just the food that we where really not keen on. Maybe we ordered the wrong things , Pepper steak and various meat starters.

We visited Bar Astor (at the recommendation of our tour driver) for lunch on a hot Saturday afternoon arriving there around 2:30. We were seated in the outside, but covered dining area. The service was leisurely, there was no rush to move us out quickly. The food was very good, the drinks were fine. While we were eating, my son... More

We dined there four times during our stay in Rio. Despite the waiters spoke no English, they recognized us and knew exactly what we wanted. They welcomed us warmly each time and treated us like an old friend. This is a very busy joint, booked or turned up early especially during the weekend.

I won't back to Bar Astor again on my most recent visit with my wife and local friends. I love the caipirinhas here and the bar appetizers are excellent. Located on the beach road on Ipanema, it's s great place to start your evening with drinks and nibbles..

Okay so , the place has a trendy retro vibe . Pretty cool- reminds me of balboa cafe in San Francisco, USA. Very similar style and concept. We put or name in for a table and sat at the bar , having a draft beer ice cold. It took about 20 min. For a table as the place was packed.... More
