Fantastic dining experience!!

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.

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

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
