I read that this restaurant was Franzilian, a fusion between french and brazilian and it´s completely true. You can choose a la carte or a tasting menu of 3 or 5 courses. Choosing 5 courses made a fantastic dinner, since each course was really a taste, a small portion. Not only the flavour was delicious, also the presentation of each... More

We had a great meal here. The ravioli starter was amazing as we all the mains we ordered. They were also very accommodating for the vegetarian we had on our table. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Rio

We were anxious to know this restaurant. You have to make reservations, it's always full. Well, we went there on a rainy friday night (I suppose that's why we found the places). Small place. About 10 tables. Nicely decorated, but not exceptional. We sat, they brought us a rustic bread, and some "biscoitos globo", typical salty biscuits ambulants sell in... More

I booked this restaurant as an end of holiday treat. It had been reviewed favorably in a couple of UK Sunday magazines. I actually booked in Italian as the woman takinb the booking did not speak English but there was enough of a similarity to Portuguese and iIalian to understand what i wanted! The Drive to the restaurant was fraught... More

I have been a frequent diner at Olympe for more than a decade. Since Claude Troigros' son Thomas assumed executive control it has grown even better than it already was. As a worthy member of the Troigros family of stellar restaurants Olympe never disappoints and always has a Brazilian flavor making the French experience slightly exotic. The polvilho served with...

France meets Brazil in Rio. Gourmet French food with a Brazilian twist. This is not cheap but we can away feeling it was worth it. Owner proprietor was in residence as came and spoke to all tables.

If you are looking for fine dining in Rio look nowhere else. Excellent atmosphere, fantastic food and wine. Excellent and professional service. One of the best dinners I have had in years.
