The traditional chef, with his own history in Brazil, brings with him the blood of Roanne's Troisgros family and his brazilian experience, in a renovated restaurant. New menus proposed, many leaving the choice to the customer, with his typical fusion gastronomy. Tasteful as always, and modern... read more

This is supposed to be one of the best restaurants in Rio, my family experience was definetely a disaster. We, my wife, my mother, my son and I in a farewell dinner the last time my then 96-year-old came to Rio. My son's steak was fine, but my wife and my mother chose a fish which came with a tasteless...

On a month long trip to South America,Olympe was to be our last night's dinner. We were so looking forward to dining at Olympe. Unfortunately,we were extremely disappointed with our meal. While our food was very good,the staff was cold and distant to us. There were no suggestions to be made,our questions were brushed off in a manner suggesting that... More

Went with a group to celebrate a wedding anniversary. Read the previous reviews where some people noted that it was pricey. The prices are a bit higher but the food and service justify the price. The chef's surprise tasting menu was incredible from the first bite to the last (be sure to get the generous wine pairing). The staff was... More

OBSESSED!! Didn't try the degustation menu when I went 😓 but I still enjoyed it a lot! When I went I had the prawn and white truffle risotto, which is one of my all time favorites! And some yummy white wine! Impossible not tô fall in love with this place 😊😍

4 out of 5... why? It deserves more than a 3 - 3 is rated as Average, and little about this place is average - but 4 is "Very Good" - I wouldn't REALLY rate it that high, but Tripadvisor doesn't have a "Good", 3.5 rating for reviews... Went with a group of 7 colleagues for a business dinner. It... More

I have been twice and both times the food and service has been great by Rio standards. On both occasions we had the tasting menu/chefs selection. In my opinion one of the best restaurants in Rio but be warned it is expensive. One complaint I have is that the bottle of wine I selected was 2011 on the wine list... More

Went along fully planning to have taster menu but ended up going for 3 course traditional menu due to lack of choice of appetisers for non fish/seafood eaters. Starter of ravioli was bizarre, both mains were v rich, pudding (souffle) was v good. Theres a menu in english but no one speaks it which is problematic. Definitely seems overrated to... More

Showed up with a wait listed reservation but the hostess offered us a table if we could vacate it by 10:30pm, informed her that we wanted to do the tasting menu and if that was enough time 2.5 hours then it should not be an issue. The tasting menu was excellent, the staff mainly speaks only Portuguese, but they made... More

Brazil seems to have a special impact on renowned French chefs: rthere are many established in Brazil and, in Rio de Janeiro, the Olympe is one of the excelling top French "restôs" in town. Close to the lagoon Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, it is located in a quiet area, very close to the lagoon. The menu is rather short (as,... More
