Ok, I will divide this review into two. 1. If you are looking for some good food and have limited Michelin star experience; visit this restaurant. It is great service and good food. 2. If you have been around, you have a certain expectation. You have eaten at quite a few 1 ,2 ,3 star restaurants and know what to... More

We have watched with interest the style of cuisine promoted by Claude Troisgros on Brazilian TV, and have waited for the chance to savour it for ourselves. On a visit to Rio we celebrated a birthday by lunching at Olympe on a Sunday. We were not disappointed: the menu (Criativa) offered an excellent choice of dishes, cooked to order, each... More

We went to this place last night and we were not only disappointed, but also shocked by the final bill: 1000 Reals! We are restaurants-hunters-lovers-fans, but this is far too much. Don't get me wrong, according to the reviews we did expect to spend some money and when we have amazing meals we don t even mind to spend a... More

I went to this restaurant for the first time and found it extraordinarily good. The smaller tasting meno (4 dishes) was outstanding, with very creative cuisine chosen by the chefs. Restaurant offers creations & tastings from acclaimed French chefs Claude & Thomas Troisgros. Booking is essential as there are only a dozen or so tables. I highly recommend this place... More

Visited Olympe with my wife, celebrating our Anniversary. That was a bull's eye. A very calm, nice, dim lit French cuisine restaurant. If you are going to Olympe, you shall not be very concerned with the right column of the menu (the price). Think about... Value. I was there for the Confiance menu. I'm picky eater, so I stick to...

Very very overpriced for the menu and service. Rio de Janeiro has many other options much better for this value. Food very good and service ok, not worth at all the price.

The restaurant is in the Lagoa area and the traffic can be bad getting into here. It has a smart, if slightly dark interior. The food is good. We had: *Amuse bouche of cold potato, basil soup with apple pieces and pepper *Raviolo with potato filling, burnt butter and pine nuts, filling creamy and delicious like the best mash *Giant...
