Perfect place to wind-down to watch the sunset with a craft cocktail, Palaphita Kitch is one of those "just add people" places. The more folks are lounging in the comfortable outdoor living rooms (complete with lamps) the more fun the experience becomes.

Palaphita kitch is great place to spend really nice evening with your travel mates. It is located in Lagoa area in Rio, and is safe area. Choice of cocktails is amazing. They have really amazing fruits they put in cocktails. Food is good as well but its more like snacks, sandwiches etc. At least what I had. Staff is a... More

we went there to celebrate 2 successful weeks of hard work and training workshops and it was perfect. Icy cold and reasonably priced champagne, good service though only one waiter had reasonable English which made it a bit of a challenge but we managed, I had a spicy prawn(shrimp) dish that was delicious and then we had a gorgeous dessert...

The view, music and atmosphere are unique, but the terrible service and even worse drinks make this place extremely overpriced.

Looks like prices are focused on tourists. Has highly increased prices lately. Worth the view, specially in the sunset, but would not recommend.

It is an outdoor bar, located on Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, that serves tipical brazilian food and drinks. There is a variety of capirinhas (lots of different fruits to mix with vodka or cachaça). The place is decorated with wooden benches in a very charming manner. It's ideal for meeting friends or on a romantic date. Try to get there... More

Such a great place to go for a drink and a dance, to watch the locals, to look across the lagoon- the enormous floating Christmas Tree was right in front and you can see Christ the Redeemer clearly lit at night. Near the famous Jockey Club, this place gets going after 10.30-11pm. You can wear Jandals or wedges (don't bring... More

Came here for some nice drinks for our last night in Rio and walked out. We stood waiting for one of the waiters to seat us for at least 10mins before grabbing a table ourselves, when no one came to serve us after another 10 mins I went and looked for someone to get us menus. They finally brought them... More

Came here for a late night chill with my girlfriend, and really enjoyed the fantastic atmosphere and view of the Lagoa in Rio. You sit in laidback wooden furniture, on sand under big trees with loads of candle lights and chill music surrounding you - really romantic and relaxing. But i can't understand people rate the cocktail of this place... More
