A bit stiff

The food is very good and the service professional. However I did not love the ambiance. It just felt a bit 'trying too hard'. We decided on the chefs choice of menue and individually every dish was very good. However as a selection I would have wished for more variety in the choice. There were 3... read more

We visit Rio every winter and eat in all of the best restaurants. We always enjoy the food in Rio. Because of reviews, we looked forward to eating at Olympe. We left our hotel a little late and had our concierge call to inform the restaurant. They said if we didn't arrive within 1/2 hour they would give our table... More

My wife and I ate dinner at Olympe our first night in Rio. It lives up to its high rating on trip advisor and elsewhere. If all we had been given was the bread basket of pao con queso it would have been enough. The six courses that followed were phenomenal. We each did the tasting menu where you make... More

We very much enjoyed our visit to this restaurant. A charming space with attentive service. The food, was in our opinion, the best in Rio. One downside was that the sommelier did not speak english. We did ask for a bottle of sancerre which he thought he was out of. He did come back and say that he found it.... More

We choose the menu confidence, as we like to be surprised and we were quite happy with it. Everything was excellent, carefully prepared, and some of the dishes really exiting. The sequence was carefully chosen, to increase the sensations up to the end with the sopramesa (that was an explosion of our senses). With a bemolle on the cernia, very... More

Multi-course tasting menu for US $90? Sign me up! This place was really good and very innovative. Would have liked a little more from the dessert but who wouldn't? Their English is spotty but my Portugeuse is limited to Obrigado so we are even. Great place.

Cloude Troisgrois is famous in Brazil due to his TV shows and several restaurants, but this one is the exponent of his network. Amazing 6-course tasting menu with superb wine pairing, all dishes were a hit, really amazing night provided by the tradition of a family of chefs (his son, Thomas, was in the restaurant serving the tables) in the...

Olympe is certainly the best gastronomic experience I have ever had in Brazil. I had a birthday dinner with my family there yesterday and the food was fantastic, the service was perfect and the environment was very comfortable, "like home", and also very fancy. This is THE PLACE to have unforgettable moments with your family. Claude and Thomas Troisgros are... More

We were here a couple days ago, everything was perfect from beginning to end. Dishes were amazing, tasty and full with flavour, great collection of wine from Europe to South America. Great service. Couldn't pick anything wrong. We left feeling satisfied. Thank you Olympe for making our evening perfect!
