Great dinner at Miam Miam

What a lovely surprise this place was. The food is the best in Rio. Great staff, well looked after by them. Each course from the tasting menu was really really good.

This is quite a trendy restaurant and not somewhere one would happen upon by chance. It could be excellent, but fell down in a couple of respects. Firstly it is extremely noisy which makes conversation almost impossible - there are no soft furnishings and the restaurant extremely reverberant - fortunately they did turn off the dreadful music part way through...

Absolutely loved this restaurant; the service was top notch, the ambiance was so homely and packed with locals and the food was exceptional. It makes sense that they got a Bib Gourmand from Michelin. I would highly suggest making a reservation in advance. As per the food, we decided to go with the tasting menu (Menu Degustacao); the food was... More

I had the 3-Miam sampler. Three excellent dishes. The only detail is that all three dishes came to the table at once. By the time I got to the last one it was not really warm. But they all tasted wonderful. The dessert, I had the bavaroise, was unbelievable. I highly recommend!!!

Every once in a great while, you find a restaurant that does everything right. This is one such rare gem and our evening there was incredible. Every dish was amazing, wine and cocktails were good, service was attentive but not overly cloying. The vibe is fantastic - beautiful design with a tasteful retro feel but also comfy/cozy with just the... More

Not too packed, so I didn't need a reservation. Perfect place for a late-night semi-romantic dinner. The food is pretty amazing. The degustation menu I had was fairly priced at about R$150, and with two appetizers it was a perfect amount of food for me and my girlfriend. The wait staff was a notch or two above the rest in...

It is a tiny place, at an unexpected place. But the food is really good, with reasonable prices, great drinks (strongly recommend the rubi caipirinha, made of rubi grapes) and most of the entrées are awesome. The service was a bit on the slow side, but still worth the visit! As Rio is not as rich in restaurants as Sao... More

This was our 3 or 4th time at Miam Miam. With all the options in Rio this is saying something. The food every time is excellent! Freshly prepared, interesting combinations. Definitely for foodies! The drinks are also imaginative and unusual, although you can of course have the standards. The wine list is good as long as you have a bottle.... More

It's a tiny place, almost hidden among other houses on Botafogo neighborhood. One of my friends passed by twice before realizing it was the restaurant. Many interesting options for main course, I had the "pupunha" spaghetti with shrimp, simply perfect! My friends ordered different things, all of them looked really good. Great atmosphere, good service, I'll definitely come back!
