Great atmosphere with good food

Was recommended the restaurant by our hotel concierge so did not know what to expect. The vibe is really good - a lively background buzz from other diners but not so you can't have a conversation. We had told the concierge that we fancied fish (too many churascos) but when we got there they... read more

I didnt like it, its a very loud place, and my pasta (the only vegetarian option) was disgusting swimming in oil and overcooked, the roasted potatoes as well lots of oil! My friend had salmon which was very good. There is a display of lobster and crab which is kinda gross looking. The service so so, the hostess very friendly!

If you want to try really good Brazilian dishes you must eat at Giuseppe Grill. The best Picanha I ever had. Excellent service, great location, great atmosphere, and the food is amazing. Highly recommend Giuseppe Grill.

This is one of best meals as well as experience we had during our trip to Rio. The host (Mr Santos) as well as everybody we encountered were very helpful and kind. Mr Santos made a paper boat for my 2 year old :) who thoroughly enjoyed the attention and was constantly being entertained by other waiters and helpers as... More

Very taste food, wonderful envirement, and wines very expensives...Other problem was the reservation. I was made for 20:30, but my table was ready only by 21:15. A huge problem, since the proposite of the reservation is.... a reservation of a table to have dinner.

Brazil is meat lover's heaven. I generally don't eat meat, but won't resist a superb prepared meat dish. The bread and condiments are great. We ordered red snapper and sirloin to share among four of us, they were so delicious and tender we just grabbed it in no time. Desert is great too.

This place rocks. Excellent eats in a chilled atmosphere. Great "clean" food - minimal sauces, lots of flavours. I started with Provencale Frogs Legs - 5 large legs (the frogs in Brazil tend to be a LOT larger than their European counterparts), tomatoes, garlic, excellent. I shared 2kg of Grouper with a colleague - we both loved it. Two others... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant, the prices were expensive (££££) but the food was pretty average definitely not worth the price tag. I had a fillet steak which was a little bit dry for my liking, however the restaurant staff were lovely and the ambience was lovely (fitting the ££££ price tag) with a waterfall feature and wine racks on...

The meat was great and also all the sea food was amazing. The service was good and the staff was great, I came 1 hour early to my reservation but they still found a way to let me eat when I came. There is also a type of waterfall inside. I wouldn't recommend this place for families who have noisy... More

We were recommended to come here from several different sources. We tried it and it was reasonably good. The cover charge is really steep! I had the special sirloin and it was remarkably good. Unfortunately, my wife ordered the goulash and it was very reminiscent of tinned tomato soup! Service was good and some staff tried really hard to ensure... More
