The pizza was tasty, the service was friendly. The rest: awful. My grilled chicken breast which took 40 minutes to come, arrived cremated and inedible and it cost 66 reals (that is 30 USD!!). My friend had some buffet items: Codfish lasagna inedible, the codfish was unchewable and strawy. Poor to very average food, and costly. Not going there again,... More

This is our second time eating at Rascal Liblon, we went Saturday and you have to get a number and to wait ,but don’t wary about that because you will eat pizza served by them and you can get your drink from the bar (pizza not include in the bill). I suggest you try everything. Everything is good I just... More

Everything at this restaurant is great! I particularly love the pizza. I think that perhaps it is a little on the expensive side. But I pay for it any every time I'm in Rio. There are other Rascals in Rio, but I have a particular thing for the one in Leblon.

Sincerely, this restaurant just have a name and nice tables. You pay like 60 reais to access the buffet what is very regular and ordinary. Nothing really special. You will leave the restaurant thinking you could have done much more things with the money you've spent there. If you want a really really nice restaurant, not expensive and with a... More

Unless you are going to eat "a lot" Rascal turns out to be a little pricey for what if offers. The food is good, the selection excellent, but the buffet is a little too expensive. Pizzas however are very fairly priced as are the wines. They have a very good selection of wines and there is always an expert to... More

Although this is not a vegetarian restaurant the wider choice in the buffet is vegetarian and the quality is exceptionally high specially taking into account that this is a shopping mall restaurant. The layout of the restaurant is also intimate and the hot dishes which are served separately but included in the buffet bill are also excellent. One downside is... More

We wondered into Rascal completely by accident and what a find! The buffet is exceptionally high quality as is the pasta that follows. Really impressed with the only downside being we discovered it only on our last day in Rio!!!

I had a great opportunity to try food at Rascal Leblon shopping center. Place was recommended by my brazilian friend. Initially I was a bit reluctant to eat in such location ( shopping center does not seem to be best location for good dinning usually). Me and my friend were greeted by a friendly floor manager speaking perfect english (... More

We have visited Rascal at Lebnon shopping Center. The pizzas we ordered were tasty but the atmosphere is shopping center and it was only downside..
