I love to eat here because you can taste every single ingredient in all their food. The menu has everything you want to and the restaurant is separated according to what you are going to eat there. If you go to have a dessert and a coffee, the place where you are going to seat is different from the one where people are eating their lunch. The place is not only great to eat at, but is also beautiful. It reflects the Belle-Époque of Rio and - according to the brazilians I went with the first time - every piece that is decorating Colombo was brought from France to make you feel part of the scenery. The great news is that you don't have to be dressed up to eat there. You just have to try it, specially the desserts that have "maracujá"

Great place, setting, service and food. Although we had to wait on hour at lunch time on a Saturday to get a table. Buffet food for all types of flavours and the desserts are superb

Well worth a visit to experience down town Rio

I know I am swimming against the current but I call 'em like I see "em.
For me, the primary thing about a restaurant is the food and this place just doesn't have it.
Yes, it is downtown and in an old and beautifully decorated building, which is way down an insignificant and hard to find side street.
This place is a highly rated establishment that doesn't have A/C. The first floor is deep and wide and about 90 degrees and humid. There was no way I could enjoy my meal. The front area which offers lite bites is crowded with no place to stand. The things on offer are basically fried savories and some sweets. These are really nothing special.
If you go up to the second floor for the weekend feijoada, seating and airflow are better but you must opt for the $40 meal.
I found this place creepy, sweaty and truly unnecessary
