This small restaurant although cosy and beautifully decorated is insanely overpriced. Unfortunately you don’t get what you pay for! I was really disappointed with the food knowing that I could have a better dinner for half the price in many different restaurants!

Good location and nice interior design. Very slow but delicate staff. Bar below average but still capable of making regular classic drinks. Wine list just ok. The Chef’s “degustation” menu had the same unremarkable taste from beginning to end- a very monotonous taste Overall just...More

Historically Rio had a limited options for high end dinning. Oteque is a bright light for the city. The ambiance, service and choice of cooking is outstanding even if compared with the much more competitive offering of the “freenemy” city of Sao Paulo.

Quality seems an obsession here, and every detail is handled with care. Only tasting menu in order to guarantee always the top ingredients, strong technical skills but not overstated, very nice environment in terms of comfort of all kinds, especially acustic, which is usually a...More
