“Best Food in Rio!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

I went to the Delirio in Ipanema twice on my week long trip to Rio. The food was phenomenal and so delicious! They had a lot of vegetarian options, but also delicious meat options as well. The prices are really good and you get a lot of food for your money. It was $R15 for a huge plate of salads and pastas. I would recommend this to anyone who goes to Rio!

Some of the workers are pretty fluent in English, so it's a friendly place for those who don't know any Portuguese.

“Great value lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

We ate here for lunch after a morning of major hiking/touring, and found a great selection of salads for lunch on a very hot day. The line of people out the front looks a little intimidating but it went fast and had no problem with seating. Not a place for a long, lingering dining experience but quality was good at a reasonable price and worth a quick stop in the middle of the day.

“If you want salad, there's no better place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

In ipanema or everywhere else, Delirio Tropical is amazing. Always a big variety of salad. I would recommend the ceasar salad thereand the fillet mignon with mustard sauce/herbs sauce/ gorgonzola sauce. Depending on the day the sauce of the fillet changed. No deception. The price isnt so good, but for once a week its fine. Around 20 & 35 reais depending on how many salads u choose or warm dishes.

“Great healthy organic take away food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

I am a regular here because their salads and hot dishes are a great healthy option if you lack time (read: lazy) to cook youeself during the week. The file mignon is recommendable and the manioca with carne seca or beef is great.

“A value for money fast food healh concept”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

First of all it is situated in a very nice area of Ipanema which is a couple of hundred meters off the beach. The concept is basically a self service buffet of relatively healthy food with pasta salads, soups, fish filets and so forth. It is not incredible food but for R$50 you can buy up a few tasty items for 2 to 3 people and take them back home if you don´t feel like cooking. It is a popular option for week-end beach goers looking for a light lunch after a day at the beach, but beware the long queues on Saturdays!
