“Slow and awfull service”
Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

Food takes a lifetime to arrive to the table and some of the waiters are unpolite and forget/change what was ordered.

Beside's that, the food is good and the price is nice foe Rio de Janeiro standards.

I wouldn't recomend this restaurant.

“When a service makes the food taste bad.”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Although the menu is rich, the food is good and the lunch menu is cheap, the service in this place is one of the most awful I've ever experienced.

To be sure, I've been there three times and all three visits were terrible.

Slow, impolite and lazy servers, make mistakes on every order. The food takes forever to arrive.

If would like some better food and a much better service, go to Joaquina, just by Martinez.

“Disaster”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Reveillon 2013, lunch time on 31.12. Total disaster, was with family of five at normal lunch time at Martinez. After waiting for an hour and a half, we had not received one single dish on the table. During this time we made several - and increasingly heated - commentaries to the staff with no avail. We walked out of the restaurant after the 90 minutes of waiting without any pay for the drinks consumed during this period of time, naturally. I would not recommend this restaurant with a good heart even to the of enemies.

Main reason for the worst restaurant experience in a long tine seemed to lie in the kitchen as dishes were appearing on tables in no logical order if customers having placed their orders around us.

If wanting to go out of business soon, Martinez has the tools for it in place, with a prime location on Copacabana. That would be a feat upon itself to see.

“No Taste at All”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

The environment is not bad, but the food is. The good thing is that you have better restaurants nearby.

“Great food, great service, great price!”
Reviewed December 31, 2011

I ate a great filet mignon with mustard sauce and vegetables and I tell you it was one of the best meals I ever had!! The prices aren't that high and you can expect great service and kindness from the staff!
