They have fixed menus for lunch where you can choose, for example, one main dish + a salad buffet or other similar combinations, at a reasonable price. Nice service. The place is really nice with a vintage touch.

Very dark place, mismatched decor. Long wait for a table. Capable staff, attentive and knowledgeable. Just a few choices of appetizers and main courses. Food is good, although portions are small. Prices are not. It is worth a one time visit, not a return.

A right place for a good dinner. Finally I can say I got good service in Rio. The staff was attentive, very knowledgeable about what they were serving, friendly and professional in the right balance. They keep their eyes if everything is going ok without interrupting the guests all the time. Sounds pretty obvious if you are used to get... More

Ideal for that special date in casual, trendy surroundings. There is a small well thought out menu of attractively prepared dishes with vegetarian options and unlike some more "nouveau cuisine" places you don't leave hungry. The staff is knowledgeable and unobtrusive. The background music is good. It isn't cheap but I consider the quality level to be value for money... More

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!!!
