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.

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!
