Nice place to get around

Nice place for have american/australian food in Rio. We specially enjoyed Ribs, hamburguers, frozen beer and we recommend Chocolate thunder as dessert. Has plenty of TV for watching games. It may take long time to take a place to sit, specially in Shopping Leblon.

My family and I went here for dinner they were pretty crowded and the wait was approximately 15 minutes which is great we thought it would be a little longer seeing all the people. I ordered the Porterhouse steak which was just ok nothing spectacular I think their appetizers are far better than the entries and I think next time... More

Staff were friendly but seemed very unorganised. Food arrived before drinks and a side salad about 10 mins before the mains. Food was mediocre. We sent a steak back as it was under done and it took a further 10 minutes by which time most others had finished the food. In a city full of amazing meat restaurants I dont... More

This is an interesting place... but will not blow your mind away. if you want to have some meat at an affordable price, great! The location is a bit "fashionable" as this Leblon but this is not a great venue... looks OK but very American-fast-food alike. Food: good meat... just not very interesting or exciting. Venue: not too interesting... pretending... More

This is a very cozy place which is ideal for both couples and large groups, their appetizers and food in general is very tasty! My husband loves their chicken wings and baby back ribs. Service is usually good and it's conveniently located at the mall ;)

Extremely noisy, fair food. Good to go with kids. Service is spotty. The T-bone is fairly decent. When at the mal and looking for a steak, it is a compromise.

The waiters always take too long to come serve. We're never sure if its because they are overworked or if because they are told to steer clear so people will just clear the table faster, but it's a bad and annoying sort of business. Would rather go to Applebee's or somewhere else where waiters are actually interested in serving.

I do not intend to be back over there, what a disappointment! the time to all service (to serve, to bring the bill, to bring something else, to bring food and beverage at the right moment), the temperature of the food and its just "average" quality. I'm out! (with no "back")

Went on sunday.. enjoy the extra large.. extra cold beers.. even enjoyed the chicken wings although they aren't spicy. Problem was when we first sat down we then asked to move tables as we felt like we hadn't really left the waiting area. We'd already ordered our food with the first waiter and ended up waiting for two steaks that... More

Staying in Leblon

Neighborhood Profile
Leblon
In addition to being one of the most upscale neighbourhoods in the city, Leblon is charming, elegant and simple. This posh area has some of the most famous and expensive restaurants in Brazil, along with some of the city’s best nightlife (including some places open all night). One of the best places to visit is the beach, located under the impressive “Morro Dois Irmãos” (Two Brothers Hill). It’s a pleasant place to relax and admire the local beauty.
