Since I am a meat eater I didn’t have such a good time in this bistro. They have several options for people who eat fish though. The place is very charming and the service is good. I only recommend if you eat fish.

Dear Guilherme, our intention is to offer a contemporary menu experience, with variety. So we have fish, as well as meat, chicken and vegan. Hope to see you again.

The food was mostly Asian. Overall it was good but nothing to justify the high prices (more than 16 euros for a chicken curry). You can definitely find similar quality food for much less than that in Rio.

Dear Damien, we work with select ingredients, and as organic as we can find. The chicken and the rucola, for example, are organic. kinds Zaza Bistro
