“One of the best in Rio?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Visiting Rio over the weekend during a business trip. The restaurant is located in the supremely elegant Copacabana Hotel (kinda wish we were staying here...). Cool ambiance - beautifully decorated. Plenty of room between the tables. Great staff. I had the fish soup followed by lobster ravioli. A nice change from heavier Rio fare. Extensive, if extensive wine list. Go ahead - spoil yourself.
(Depending on where you are staying in Rio, leave yourself enough time to get there as traffic can be chaotic around here).

“Elegant & Personable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Fell in love with Rio while staying in this hotel & eating dinner here our first night. When you enter, the restaurant is to the right, with a bar lounge to the left. A baby grand piano sits in the middle and a medley of american (no Spanish tunes surprisingly) musicals are played. The service & food is excellent. Upscale, romantic ambiance but while dining (Saturday night) we saw guests seated wearing T-shirts & shorts. Perhaps their luggage did not arrive with them, however the setting deserves coat and tie & dress equivalent...

No need to order a dessert like we did (a dessert combination) as the restaurant serves a multi tiered tray of mini desserts - Yummy.

The maitre d' was so sweet. After dinner we asked for directions to the hotel's Bar de Copa and he personally escorted us outside in the light rain (holding an umbrella over our heads) and walked us to the club's entrance to facilitate our entry (for which we did not have reservations & the web site did not indicate we needed reservations).

This restaurant was fully booked the entire weekend (early Dec). Make sure you make reservations online (more than 24 hrs in advance as the restaurant confirms reservations with a return email).

“Gorgeous room, gorgeous setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

This is definitely an "occasion" restaurant. We were celebrating an anniversary and had a wonderful table facing the twinkling lights of the outdoor pool in this beautiful property. Apart from the lovely decor in the restaurant, the service was impeccable, yet unobtrusive. Every dish was wonderful, from the amuse-bouche to the dessert. Truly a romantic setting and one of those nights to remember.

“Classic upscale restaurant with good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Good food but the menu is not so exciting.
The service is very good. Money value is quite good if you consider the quality etc.
