Amazing food, great solicitious service, very accomodating staff.

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... read 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

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

Great stuff by Troisgros Jr. Really special menu of Brazilian inspiration but cooked to haute cuisine standards. One of the most refined meals I have ever had in Brazil

Once again, as I have said many times, I am not a foodie, so I may not be the most pre-disposed to appreciate this type of restaurant. Having said that: The dining area is nothing impressive. I did like the view-in kitchen. However the lasting impression is that the acoustics are horrible. It was LOUD. We had a difficult time... More

This is a world class restaurant with food that is too delicious to attempt to find the words for. I dined there for lunch after spending a week in Rio and having had some great meals along the way. My meal consisted of the shrimp risotto with white truffle oil and mushroom foam, followed by the Pom Pom Pom for... More

Had a lovely lunch at Olympe. Arrived early, table was already set. Had champagne to pair with food which worked out well! Ordered the 3 courses menu, enough and glamorous food for the both each one of us. So, so delicious. Service was kind and attentive, price was high but again wouldnt expect to be cheaper for the high quality... More

Having sampled most of Rio's top end restaurants and the rest of the 'CT' resaurants, I think Olympe offers one of the best restaurant experience in Rio. There is an a la carte and (surprise) tasting menu available, and a large variety of wines included paired options. My only surprise was the lack of any English speaking staff, which resulted...

Food is expensive but divine. First class restaurant for gourmet fans. Be aware that there is a lot of traffic when taking a taxi from copa cabana to Olympus, so opt for a later reservation. Dinner was one of the best ever - go with the recommendations.
