This is a very disappointing restaurant. It's very expensive and the food is average. the décor is outdated, the service is ok. The floor has carpet on it with a funny smell...

This place is absolutely terrible! After waiting an hour for a table, the food took forever. It was not worth the wait! The waiters took care of the regulars and ignored the tourists. I even witnessed the waiters openly accepting brides. If you're not from Rio, I would avoid this place at all costs.

Our Brazilian friends in Florida recommended the Antiquarius Restaurant. It was a scene as the rich and beautiful people of Rio filed in to the warm greeting of a very courteous staff. I started with a glass of wine and many appetizers were put dowm on our table. Later I found out we were going to pay for them. The... More

Traditional Style. Very nice and helpful staff. Extensive wine list (only Portuguese wines). The food is very good and traditional. It is not a Brazilian version, but the real thing. The starters: croquetes de carne, bolinhos de bacalhau, rissois de camarão are amazing. The the main course I advise the Arroz de Pato or Cabrito - both are delicious. The... More

The interior is interesting, with a wooden balcony above the bar that seats people, and walls that separate parts of the restaurant, and paintings all over the walls. The area that we were sitting had wooden ceiling as if we were sitting outside on a porch. They had a menu in English, although I did not get the page with... More

Antiquarius in Leblon is the original restaurant. There is also the Antiquarius Grill in Barra da Tijuca, however, it is located in a shopping mall and lacks the flair of the original restaurant. The menu is focused on seafood, but also has a few good steak dishes. I recommend the grilled seafood dish which provides as good selection of fresh... More

By far our worst dining experience in rio. Was excited for good portugese Brazilian food and instead got largely ignored while dining on overlooked, tough lobster. Staff forgot about us as Friday night got busy in the restaurant. This place seems vastly overrated and overpriced. My wife's moqueca was good. Not a good experience. Try olympe, satricon and oro for... More

I wanted to make sure that I wrote a review because before we left for dinner, I started freaking out about how much dinner was going to cost after reading others' reviews. By U.S. standards, this restaurant is not outrageously expensive if you are accustomed to fine dining. Our bill was $188USD for a bottle of wine, bottled water, one... More
