I highly recommend!!!

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!

We have been lucky enough to visit Rio on several occasions and always make sure we pay our respect to Christo on Corcavados; take in the views from Sugar Loaf, enjoy some futebol and worship the sun on the amazing Praias. Good food and drink are never far away, from the street/beach vendors to the fantastic churrascos. However one restaurant... More

I love this place! Vintage decoration, has a incredible lounge where you can wait for a table - it's usually full, or even eat a bit. The Comfort food of chef Roberta Ciasca is incomparable! The plates are very well served for an individual and the drinks are all delicious, even the virgin ones! It's a MUST go!

My hotel was in Botafogo, this restaurant was nearby. The restaurant had English menus, which was a real help. I ordered a dish which had a pork and basmati rice, if you're having trouble choosing from a very colourful menu then I recommend this dish. But I will always remember a non-alcoholic drink called Leia, order it and you won't... More
