If you are in a travel group, this restaurant is likely to be in the itinerary. If on your own give it a miss. It looks great enough as you enter it, but disappoints the moment you are seated at the tables on the first floor. They are tackily laid, the service incredibly poor and the food way off the mark. It's Italian, but a very low end one. It took over an hour to get the meal, which one could barely plough through. And another forty-five minutes for dessert. And the management were lackadaisical.....

We made a city tour with lunch included. This lunch was in this restaurant with a group of about 30 people.

We made a frustrating experience. If a restaurant is chosen for large travel groups, you would expect that the infrastructure is prepared for it. This was not the case! Drinking was served very quick, but for the menu we had to wait much to long. Quality of food (fish for us) was okay, but the shrimp sauce was served just before we left the restaurant. All together we lost more than 2 hours of the city tour just for lunch. I don't understand the city tour operator GRAY LINE RIO for choosing such a helpless restaurant in their tours.

They really rip you off in her. The bill was crazy, no doubts. And we couldn't complain because nobody speak english in the restaurant. We preferred to pay and go. My tourguide has been next day to ask for explanations, and they just came with infantile arguments. It's incredible!

We stumbled upon this place just by walking down Rua de Farme Amoedo. We glanced at the menu and were welcomed in by the manager who sat us at the bar and made sure we had a glass of wine in a timely manner. Very attentive service and pleasant atmosphere. Although I can on comment on the bar and not the dining room.

I accept that as part of a tour package you won't expect the best on offer. And Mio met that expectation.The food was basic, and I wish forgettable.
However, no drinks were included and it works like this. The waiters ask, and take orders for drinks. At the end the manager prices what has been ordered. We witnessed an elderly couple charged US$35 for 1 local beer,1 orange juice and 2 cups of coffee. We asked for a price list and ordered 1 Bavarian beer,(10 Real), and recieved 1 local beer,(approx.2 Real), the manager tried to charge 16 Real. Others complained of similar experiences. You can be up front with your pricing but this was a bit predatory. May be different for the a la carte diners but be wary with the tour package.
