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.

We, unfortunate got stuck in traffic, so we arrived a bit annoyed at ourselves for leaving cops cabanna to be stuck in traffic. Well all that was washed away with our first bite of food. The chef is a master artist in presentation coupled with a master of incredible flavors. Not inexpensive but worth every penny. Can't think of a... More

Great place with fabulous food. Flawless. We ordered the "menu confiance" and we were very pleased with an impeccable food. Lovely wines (with endless refills) to go with each dish. A very cozy place, perfect to go as a couple. I was impressed with one of the entrés, a tuna tartare with red sugar beet and fois gras; very delicate... More

Olympe is truly a world class fine dining restaurant. It's expensive, but not out of line with food of this quality in Brazil or anywhere else. This was without doubt the best meal we had in Brazil. The dining room is intimate, romantic, tasteful and elegant. The service is warm, professional and attentive. We speak almost no Portuguese and they... More

A great experience! We had a tasting menu harmonized with wine. Different and unimagined flavors and combinations. Wonderful!

I was recommended this restaurant by a friend and had a wonderful experience. There are a lot of options to order A la Cart or choose one of the tasting menus. Definitely each dish came with great presentations and great combination of flavors. They have great wines. The staff did not speak much English or Spanish so they did not... More

The food here was great. We had a tasting menu and got 5 diished. The sizes of the dishes were big enough to get you full. The best dish I had was duck with foie gras and also the shrimp risotto. The onlybthing that dissapointed me a little was the creme brulee as it just tasted okay. The texture was... More

Brazil meets Europe. A unique experience of aromas, flavors and textures. Sometimes a bit strange but still unexpected food pairing. If you are in Rio, don't forget to try this Cuisine.

One of the best food I have ever tried... Excellent service, great wines and food, dessert... Location is great, it is a small restaurant and very exclusive. Prices are high but not much more than prices of average great restaurants around... I ate a shrimp risotto that was delicious! Just be prepared to spend around 200 dollars per person for... More

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
