I had read about this restaurant in lonely planet and it sounded just what we wanted, a local, casual place serving traditional Brazilian fare. And thats exactly what we got, the experience was lovely, we sat down and they didn't bring us a menu but just questioned us "feijoada?" and started bringout all the fixings for a lovely meal. In the end we had a wonderful experience but our guidebook (lonely planet "rio de janeiro city guide 2013) quoted the price as 50 reals per person about 25 dollars, however we ended up paying 75 reals per person about 37 dollars with service tax and 2 waters it ended up at about 90 dollars....now don't get me wrong, amazing food, amazing experience but quite pricey for what you get.

What a lovely evening we had eating at this restaurant. Traditional Brazilian in a very hospitable environment. The staff were very attentive and friendly, with the majority speaking English. We only paid for a main and were given free entrees, appertifs, dessert and coffee. Thank you.

Went in with the intention of trying the Feijoada. Decor was lovely and rustic. However I don't feel like the food here was authentic. Instead we just settled on their drinks. Before eating here, you really have to evaluate your hunger status because they feed you a lot.

For the $$$ they charge, service and decor wins here.

Casa de Feijoada is probably one of the best places to have Feijoada(National Dish of Brazil) when in Rio. Unfortunately the price is much higher then originally noted. It has a set price of 79BRL, based on today's exchange rate, approximately $39.00USD, which is more then any place you would find in NYC. But then again, this is the true home of Feijoada. All true fans of Feijoada should visit Rio and eat here. The service if not slow, will start off with a very savory bean soup and linguica(sausages).

So this is a traditional Brazilian dish and I wanted to try some before I left Rio.

It is 78 BRL per person for a set menu. They only came to take our drink orders. The starter bean soup they had was very tasty and savory. I was looking forward to the feijoada. However, the meal itself was lackluster. It is good to try once for the experience but is not all that tasty to go again.
