The place is full of locals and the atmosphere is very lively and casual! We had the calabreza with onions pizza and also the batidas, a wonderful shot like drink, made with natural and local fruits. A combinations of condensed milk, cachaca and the fruit. Try the Passion Fruit one (maracuja) The best!! Price is very reasonable!

Have you ever heard the word "boteco"? If you choose "no" as your answer, please let me know you can´t leave Rio without going to, at least, one good boteco. And if you chosse Belmonte, you won´t regret it. This is like a carioca institution: the food, the place, everything. Some people say bars like Belmonte changed the meaning of this because original boteco´s used to be dirty, cheap, and this kind of place turned it into something fancy and expensive, tourists stuff... but this was a long, long time ago, and as it uses to happen wiht other things, you have different types of boteco´s available, even the dirty and cheap ones for those who prefer them. Belmonte is crowded from Monday to Monday: cold bear, nice people, good service. Try one of their "empadas" or "pastéis" and you´ll know what I mean!

I have to admit, the food in Rio is pretty poor compared to Sao Paulo, but Belmonte is an exception.
Have been here on a few occasions, and love the place. Excellent Brasilian food, try Manuel's chilli oil with pastel's, wonderful!
Great selection of local pinga's, lively atmosphere, a good night!

my wife used to live in Rio and this was her second home, now we have to go every time we visit and it doesnt change - still the great atmosphere, good food (especially the tray of snacks) and awesome cold beer.
