“Classic location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Great for people watching and standard boteco food and deliciously cold chopps. Amarelinho is a Rio household place for lunch and afternoon chillin'.

“Location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Perfect location to sit and watch a busy day pass by. With the easy access via the Metro, and the Teatro Municipal and several older buildings from the days when Rio was the Capitol of Brasil withing steps (including one 22 story building which recently collapsed) , sit and relax with a chopp escuro (dark draft beer, if they have it....) before wandering off to Lapa.

“Convenient to Teatro Municipal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012 via mobile

We went to a concert at the Teatro and then here for a bite afterwards. You can enjoy the view of the Teatro and the food was good, plentiful and reasonably priced. We just had a pizza that was very good. The portions I saw being delivered to tables around us were enormous. Would go back.

“Outstanding! Feel the Carioca lifestyle.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

I believe this is an unique restaurant, old fashion with a lot of history in Rio. Several generations have seen this restaurant as a reference point in every aspect. The restaurant is NOT nice or fancy, but the food is really good (you can find all the typical dishes of Rio) and is a very good place just to seat and have a couple of "chops". Very recommended!
