“Pricey, but spectacular view and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

The Lagoon hosts restaurants and cinemas in a multi-layered building on the Leblon side of the Lagoa. The food is expensive, ( a caipirinha is about 17.50 Reis), but well-prepared. Go there for the view. Sit outside on the top floor and enjoy it.

“Modern gastronomy center with fine options of food and atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Vibrant and refined at the same time, this space is one of the most interesting areas of Rio dedicated to the modern concept of gastronomy blended with city's landscape.

On the edge of the beautiful Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, on its terrace, there are about 5 options, all branches of some of the most renowned restaurants in the city, as Quadrifoglio, Giuseppe, Pax... really a wide range of good styles as well.

You can take a table on the balcony with a beautiful view to the lake and to the montains that surround it, sit in the lively lounge, where the atmosphere is more relaxed or even opt for the exclusivity of the interior of one of the above mentioned establishments.

“Expensive for what it is”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

This is a very nice spot but very $$$$ for what it is...the food was nice enough but we didn't think it warranted the price tag....lovely & efficient staff that all seemed very friendly. It is where all the beautiful people hang out so that probably explains the pricing...about 30% above its mark.
