Closed for good. Troisgros has decided to move to Sao Paulo and to leave Rio de Janeiro. He had alteady given the direction and management of Olympe to his son. Quality had droped. And now, the final decision. Another terrible blow to this city!

In short. I would recommend the place. Food was great, mixing different tastes into something you definitely didn’t try before. Service is impeccable and corresponds to restaurants level. Wine pairing was a right choice to make and we really enjoyed it. I think total bill...for two with 7 course menu and wine was somewhat 350-400€.More

Not at the level we expected. The foie gras with rabanada entrée was the only really good and surprising meal we had for the whole dinner. All other were average (polvo, cigale de mer and entrecôte). The classical crepe with passion fruit for dessert was...OK, but very classical. Service could be better : the waiter never announced the plates, except the petits fours served with the coffee ! For a good restaurant with French atmosphere try the Terese at Santa Theresa Hotel, it is almost half price, stunning location and modern atmosphere.More

-867R$ per person but it shoud have been less than half of the price for the quality -waiters don't know at all what is in your plate -poor whine quality what is a shame for a restaurant that have one star (don't ask me how...they got it) -no presentation , it seems that no work was done on this (actually on all perspespective, is it really a professial restaurant???) -no surprising taste. We all took the 7 dishes menu but one plate was so disgusting than it was impossible to eat it (and we are all used to eat in 1 or 2 stars restaurant). -in summary please there is no point to stop by this restaurant: poor service, terrible whine, and no work done in the different dishes.More

When Claude Troisgros arrived in Brazil in 1979 it seems hard to believe he had plans to build an empire, but forty years later the legendary Chef and his son, Thomas, now own six Restaurants plus a catering Atelier, the most famous of which has...been called Olympe since 2005. Originally opened in 1983, then as Restaurant Claude Troisgros before a name change honoring the Chef’s late-Mother, it is at Rua Custódio Serrão 62 that guests will find a brick house holding one Michelin Star, the interior dimly let and intimate with staff that exudes professionalism. Offering both a la carte and tasting menus, the latter carte blanche save for allergies and intolerances, it is immediately upon seating at linen-clad tables that a Wine List is presented, several French bottles at fair prices popular amongst others while the lack of non-alcoholic options and Cocktails was surprising. Built on Brazilian Ingredients, but steeped in French elegance, it is with Bread service that most tables begin their evening, a duet of crisp Tapioca and cheesy Baguette each delicious with or without imported Butter while a follow-up Amuse of Foie Gras delivered a delicious balance of flavors in one bite. Drawing inspiration from the main menu, but not replicating any of its plates across seven courses to follow, dish one consisted of hand-cut Wagyu draped in Pork Fat with sweet and savory accoutrements, each bite a little different than that prior, though all were rich in a way that continued on with Butter-poached Slipper Lobster, local Mushrooms and Asparagus. Undeniably French cooking, though global influences are frequent, course three presented unsealed Ravioli with Potatoes and Yogurt in the middle, the addition of Balsamic and Pine Nuts creating something far greater than thus sum of its parts while Seabass with Beans and Fennel was perfectly cooked but otherwise fairly basic. Only seating four tables on this particularly rainy evening, service thus hovering at times, it was not long before a 63ᵒ Egg was offered beneath Farofa and Cauliflower, a tableside pour of peerless Bordelaise bringing otherwise common Ingredients up a notch just as fermented Manioc Root Juice did a slice of Domestic Ribeye with Pommes Aligot and a Tapioca crisp. Eschewing Troisgros famous Passionfruit Souffle Pancake for Dessert, a Parfait of Chocolate and Ginger served in its place, dinner came to a conclusion with four Mignardises, the R$475 price not a bad value but overall lacking the excitement of other Michelin-starred South American Restaurants.More

Excellent service and tasty wines however the 7 course tasting menu left us feeling underwhelmed. We regularly eat at Michelin star, and other top, restaurants around the world so we’re really looking forward to this meal however the scallop dish with coffee vinaigrette was overpowered...with vinegar, no other flavours shone through. The other courses were adequate but not nearly as innovative as the likes of Chila or I Latina in Buenos Aires despite being twice the price. Overall we expected more both for the price and reputation.More

We had booked months in advance and anticipated our night eagerly We were disappointed One course was unpleasant - scallops in coffee vinaigrette Most were OK Nothing was amazing - and at these prices that’s not good enough I’ve paid half as much for twice...as much quality at Chila and I Latina in Buenos Aires already this holiday and less for more in London, Amsterdam and Rome The matched wines were excellent and perhaps the saving grace along with the petit fours but really? Hope we do better at Oro later this week...More

I have no idea. But I believe not. I advise calling the restaurant and ask. They speak English.

I guess that a "Menu + wine" for two is going to cost around 300 USD (1200 brazilian reais). I have been there with my wife twice and the price was around 200 USD, but we didn't drink wine. This is, in my opinion, the best... More
