“Bustling great restaurant with well presented food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

Called in here for some dinner smack back in the middle of a bloco party during carnaval, was pleased to get a table despite no reservation. Food was of a much higher standard than many restaurants in rio, English menu available with a wide selection of meat & fish which we didn't see much of in rio. I had spiced mahi mahi with a tamarind sorbet, v different & beautifully presented. Much better value for money than many other finds! Great location if you've been on Ipanema beach earlier.

“Really nice cafe/restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

Just off the beautiful Ipenema beach this is a really nice cafe that serves breakfast, lunch and evening meals, delicious cocktails and ice creams. Nice outside seating with shade from the trees reminds me of a European restaurant.

“Best Cafe in Rio”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Felice Cafe is one of my favourite spots in Rio. This beautiful old house has been tuned into a lovely cafe, restaurant, icecream bar. They make the best burgers in town and you can also just drop by for one of their super tasty homemade icecreams. This sophisiticated spot is a hang out for the local trendy (mainly gay) crowd, as well as the international vistor to Rio. The staff is friendly and English speaking. Great place to hang out alone or with friends, for people watching and excellent food.

“Yummy gelato! Close to the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

Excellent gelato right near Ipanema beach! You must try the chilli chocolate flavour (chocolate picante)!
A nice large selection of gelatos! The cafe in general is relax and friendly! I totally recommend!

“Great food - slow service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

We had dinner here the other night and it took over an hour to get it - even though there were only three other tables of customers. Once the food finally arrived, ti was really good. We had one order of penne with a gorgonzola cream sauce and one order of mushroom risotto. The penne was outstanding and the risotto was good but not great. The ice cream is always delicious! We have stopped in several times for a small cup of ice cream and we have never been disappointed with it.
