We went here as a result of the listing in Lonely Planet (a go-to tactic of ours) and were not disappoint. Food was excellent, greta size, great flavours and a really good variety of stuff as well. Wine was good, beer was good. Great venue, pretty different to anything we experienced in Rio. Probably not out of place in Shoreditch,... More

My girlfriend and I had such a great experience at Meza and would certainly recommend. The food and drinks were the best we had during our visit - so much so we went back three times! A special thank you to Isaac for his hospitality and warm welcome each time, we hope to come back very soon!

Found this place through yelp ... so worth the cab drive (from Copacabana area). It is unassuming from outside and a great chic spot on the inside. There are some couches and then small tables. The drinks are on point. I had an old fashion and it was amazing. (only plus would have been the black cherry) .. the service... More

Food and drinks are very good in a friendly environment with good soundtrack. Food is service in small portions, so you can try different dishes and share with your friends. Get there early, it gets crowded!

I loved this place from the very first time I visited Rio. Nice, innovative food, great creative Caipirinhas (I love the lychees one!) and the food selection is very nice and well-thought but... It might take a while for your to get your drinks when it gets too crowded. Still, I am always going back and willing to give them... More

I was referred to Meza Bar in Botafogo by a close friend during our vacation to Rio. We were met at the door by the hostess, Paloma (excuse the spelling if incorrect) a very upbeat and vibrant young lady who was gracious enough to speak with us in English (perfect English) which made us feel welcome and at home. During... More
