“The food is as good as the view”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Excellent food, especially the fish, of course.
Superb service - just the right balance; achieved at so few places these days.
It's not cheap but it's not expensive either for the location, the ambience and the view.
A must when visiting Niteroi.

“Nice views. Good service and food.”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Located atop the ferry station in the Sao Francisco bay, designed by the world famous local architect Oscar Niemeyer. The place is quiet and the views of Rio de Janeiro are great. Food is pricier than nearby restaurants. Wines are 25% off on Thursdays.

“One of the best places to dine in Niteroi”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

The service at Olimpo is great, and with the fabulous view towards Sugar Loaf and Rio, it is easy to enjoy the mouthwatering dishes here. The wine list is not the best - they have a lot of different wines from different countries, but in my opinion they are lacking average priced wines. They have cheap wines, and very expensive ones, but the selection of around 100 R$ wines is very limited.
The food is however fantastic. The plates look very inviting, beautifully presented, and everything we have tried so far tasted amazing. We have never managed to order a dessert - we are always too full when it comes to that!
A great place to enjoy a lunch with friends, or a romantic evening.
We go there at least once a month!
