Restaurant (street level) is closed. The show are, upstairs, opens at evening. There are always tourist buses and vans around, so they may accept only groups, you should check before going. I don't know if the "Brazilian show" is worth attending.

An entertaining show, heaps of colourful costumes, dancing and music. It was good to experience a mix of Brazilian dance and history.

Samba show. First look: a little dirty, a little dark, a little simple. During the show emotions going up, so as the show temperature. Beautiful girls dancing, some of them just doing their job, but some really put their heart into the dance. Look amazing. Good and short capoeira show, boys made really good job. If somebody things it is... More

I've never been disappointed at Plataforma. I've never been to the show either. For me, it's all about the steak and nice setting downstairs. We keep it simple with steak, sides and good wine. So should you - cheers!

At the same place one can enjoy a fine dinner at the restaurant on the first floor of plataforma and then go up to the second floor to sit and enjoy a vibrant and genuine Brazilian samba and folklore show from 22:00 to 23:30. It happens every night, except sunday.

Located in Leblon, Plataforma is a very traditional place that serves excellent food with a great service. If you are looking for a restaurant specialized in meat, Plataforma is a safe choice.

I don't write about the show - it's a restaurant first. Talking food, this is a classic steakhouse and I've been going for nearly 20 years. Never disappointed and the atmosphere has only improved. Stick to steak, sides and red wine. Going again tonight! Sweet!

The show goes on with changes since 1978. First we had a dinner at downstairs and then the show was at upstairs and continued less than two hours. The dinner service was perfect and the restaurant was fine. The show clothes were stunning. We have paid 180 reals for dinner & show except drinks. We have privately come to the... More
