First of all it is situated in a very nice area of Ipanema which is a couple of hundred meters off the beach. The concept is basically a self service buffet of relatively healthy food with pasta salads, soups, fish filets and so forth. It is not incredible food but for R$50 you can buy up a few tasty items for 2 to 3 people and take them back home if you don´t feel like cooking. It is a popular option for week-end beach goers looking for a light lunch after a day at the beach, but beware the long queues on Saturdays!

This restaurant is unlike anything else in Rio (except perhaps other restaurants of the Delirio Tropical chain). You can eat VERY well for around 20 reais. The food is good quality (they are considered a "healthy" restaurant) and very tasty, and the restaurant is fast and clean. Do try their brigadeiro, because it's one of the best I've tasted, and I grew up in Brazil. Desserts and drinks are where they make their money, so watch out that your bill doesn't climb too quickly because of it. Still, you can eat all you want and not pay very much.

I don't know how you'd describe this restaurant, it's not a kilo but it's a similar idea. They have a range of food on offer and you walk along the counter and select what you fancy. Funny system where you pay after with the receipt that you get from the server at the end of the food counter, still haven't quite worked it out but if it's busy just copy the person infront.
They typically have a range of salads and also hot foods and deserts. You can have it to go too. It can be really busy at ceratin times of the day with a queue half way up the street, always the sign of a good place to eat!

Good prices, tasty, location, price, you can go direct from the beach and get a nice, light and fresh lunch and then return to the beach!!!!

Delirio Tropical is a chain with few restaurants around Rio. The food is very good and it's not expensive. You can take 1, 2 or 3 different side dishes and then add meat, fish, savoury pies etc to that. In my experience I was full with just 2 sides (I am a woman). If you are very hungry you might need a bit more. Everything I ate there have been delicious. Warmly recommended.
