First, although the wait staff was courteous and attentive, none spoke any English. They had to grab someone from the kitchen to translate for us. I also agree with a previous review that there were too many servers just standing around. We were the first ones in the restaurant; there was no one else to wait on so we felt... More

If you enjoy good service, creativity, and delicious food, don't waste your money here. If you need a recommendation, go to Lasai instead where you'll actually get impeccable service, as well as truly creative AND great tasting food. I came here with my boyfriend the night before his birthday after scoping out tripadvisor reviews (which I no longer trust, but... More

The food was excellent and the service couldn't be faulted. However, there seemed to be more staff than necessary and they looked like night club bouncers, bulging out of too tight shirts.

I've heard of chef Claude Troigros from TV, because he is a well known chef in Brazil, but I had never been to his restaurant. The place is very nice, small which makes it perfect for a 2-person dinner. The Chef's son, Thomaz, was in charge. We ordered the Menu Confiance, a series of 6 plates (+dessert) designed by the...

A surprise find in Rio. Staff did not know much English but we were able to order just as well. Wine was excellent and each course was delicious and presented very well. Very expensive but worth every $ if your ready to splurge. Sorry no pics of food but wife liked what she called the "cheesy poufs".

Claude Troisgros in his best!!! The food and service are perfect. The space very well decorated and cosy. You must try the menu confiance with wine paring. Each night the chef propose something new and very tasty. A must go when in Rio.

Here for the Olympic Games, I have searched for an outstanding restaurant or two to salve my taste buds after a day of watching back to back Olympic competition. And, at Olympe, a friend and I enjoyed a meal worthy of the Olympics. Our dinner was a delightful fusion of French and Brazilian with tastes that were superb. No doubt... More
