We had the pleasure to have dinner two times at Olympe some years ago, but never after Claude Troigros´s son took control of the kitchen. The experience was great. We chose the 5 course menu (very good idea to let the guest built his menu among all the options, mixing appetizers, main course, fish, meat…) and we were not disappointed... More

So our third Michelin Star restaurant in Rio and the venue was not great. It lacked style and the staff were rather too formal. None of them spoke English and although English menus were available, if you decided, as we did, to opt for the tasting menu with the wine pairing, the dishes are selected by the chef and the...

Expensive, but great! A real culinary experience! Chef Troisgrois to me is a treasure! I simply adore his cuisine mixing french techniques with local ingredients. A special shout out to the plating which is exquisite! Like all high cuisine, it was extremely pricey (around R$1k for 2 including wine). It's one of those extremely special occasion places, unless you are... More

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 looking from now on. Dining room renovated with wood panels on the walls, better... 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
