We came here for a lunch, and really enjoyed the restaurant. The mix of Japanese and Italian offerings made it so that there were plenty of options for everyone. The plates came in a timely manner and the restaurant atmosphere was very clean and orderly.

The building has charm, character and warmth, so the restaurant has this special cozy vibe and atmosphere. Service is excellent, and food choice, from Delightful Italian Cuisine to Zesty Sushi, beautifully presented. Prices are very reasonable; I am going there again upon my next visit.

We ordered 2 plates, "Milanese steak" and "Milanese breast Chicken". Both were to 2 people. We had a "bianca pizza" for free as appetizers. Service was good considering we are at Rio de Janeiro.

Nice offer, with, all you can eat (rodízio) at Barra da Tijuca and Botafogo. Besides the rodízio you can prove the Italian food too.

how nice it is to go to a restaurant and we're chatting with another family when the restaurant owner comes and gave us the bill... basically inviting us to leave! and we even hadn't had dessert. so impolite!

In recent years, Botafogo has become one of the
hottest neighbourhoods in Rio. It hosts many modern
restaurants with contemporary food and many venues to
listen to rock and electronic music. Its numerous bars
and pubs make this area a great choice for anyone
interested in a great nightlife experience - in fact,
some bars in the area are open all night. Casa Daros,
