We are two families traveling together and looking for a kid friendly restaurant. The food was fantastic. The ribs are mouthwatering and the meat melts of the bone. Kids loved the place and staff was great. Highly recommended

Tried Rio for 1st time for dinner. Nice outside terrace and fantastic service. It's nice to eat somewhere where the staff actually enjoy their jobs....The food was great, the beer was frothy and cold. Worth a visit.

Came here for dinner, the other night. Service was good, and my dinner was good, and priced reasonable. I had spaghetti, but I wish they would have served bread with it. Just the right amount, my friends had other dishes, and they were pleased. I would come back.......

I try to eat at this restaurant every two months for the great ribs. They are by far the best in the region, perhaps all of Quebec. Mitch and Ellen go out of their way to make you feel comfortable in this family restaurant. It's always fun and enjoyable. You can also buy their BBQ sauce which is amazing. If... More

Came here in a Saturday night with my husband and visiting mother. We had a reservation and were seated right away. Although I felt it was a little tight, once seated it was ok.

We went as a family of 5 and loved the ribs. The steak my husband had was mediocre. The service was excellent and we would definitely go back again but just for the ribs.

The best ribs, by far. Service was great. The salad was delicious (dressing). Great food. Fast, prompt service. No problem with being a large group.. Excellent value, lots of choices.
