The place is uncomfortable. There are a lot of pigeons trying to get the food. So, I really regret have been there.

Food was ok, service fine, but pigeons wander around at your feet, pecking at your toes, which doesn't do this place any favours. Portions are huge so we shared a main dish.

I don't remember the food being that good, but my wife seemed to enjoy it. The whole experience was really ruined by a waiter who had a really bad attitude.

Let's start with the visitor.I was still choosing what to order, when I felt something in my leg. It was a bit windy, so i thought it was the wind... Then I realized it could not be it. Maybe it was some of the pigeons that were roaming around, or even a dog... Well neither of those. Then I realized... More

My girlfriend and I ate here. I ordered the chicken risotto and she had a pizza. The pizza was cheesy but good and the risotto was HUGE. Enough for 4 people but tasted amazing. Great location and would stop by again.

Located in Cinelandia and easy access. Go in the late afternoon and evening is an invitation to enjoy the city and good food. The dishes are very generous and serve two people and even more quietly. Waiters are attentive and always ready to serve them. This is the true translation of the "Welcome to Rio de Janeiro." Good food, excellent... More

Great for people watching and standard boteco food and deliciously cold chopps. Amarelinho is a Rio household place for lunch and afternoon chillin'.

With the easy access via the Metro, and the Teatro Municipal and several older buildings from the days when Rio was the Capitol of Brasil withing steps (including one 22 story building which recently collapsed) , sit and relax with a chopp escuro (dark draft beer, if they have...

We went to a concert at the Teatro and then here for a bite afterwards. You can enjoy the view of the Teatro and the food was good, plentiful and reasonably priced. We just had a pizza that was very good. The portions I saw being delivered to tables around us were enormous. Would go back.

I believe this is an unique restaurant, old fashion with a lot of history in Rio. Several generations have seen this restaurant as a reference point in every aspect. The restaurant is NOT nice or fancy, but the food is really good (you can find all the typical dishes of Rio) and is a very good place just to seat... More
