We went to sugarloaf this morning and we decided to do both cable cars to the top and stop for some food before getting into the last one going down.
Lovely day, so we sat at this bar. We ordered drinks and my partner ordered some food. It took 45mins to get food - we had to ask again just because the couple behind us got their burgers before.
Average food.. but never mind, sugarloaf was amazing.
The other restaurant on top of the other hill was packed and it had tables looking down so maybe try that one first!

It is not my best burger I got here. The bread was fall apart ant to get to the food takes about 30 minutes. it has nice view to the Sugarloaf, that could be the only advantege. Caipirinha was Ok. The portion was relatively small.

I don't know....I read other sone of the other reviews. I didn't dislike this experience, with a caveat about one thing. Here's my view: we didn't have a full meal, we had snacks and drinks. We were on top of a mountain we really weren't in a hurry. The drinks didn't come fast but we didn't mind, it's beautiful and sunny. The fries with bacon and cheese were awesome. The drinks were good. It's a gorgeous location. We were happy to sit and take our time. However, there was some problem with their payment machine and it's possible that we were charged twice. They didn't seem able to guarantee that it didn't happen and couldn't provide a cancellation receipt. So just a word of caution about paying.

They have a nice location and nothing else going for them. We had to wait for forever to order our food (even though there was only us and one other table that has already been served). When the food finally arrived it was cold, the fries for the burger were soft and cold and there was no dressing or anything on the burger so it was superdry. The grilled chicken was flavorless, cold and dry.

Halfway into our meal a small monkey actually jumped onto our table to steal food from the plates, the waitor was standing next to us giggling nervously while we had to fend the monkey off using our cutlery.....??! Those things can seriously carry rabies. Not really what you want to fight while eating. After this the monkey kept coming back and none from the staff did anything about it except telling us to be careful so that they didn't bite us? Crazy.

For this lovely experience we payed round about 100 reales...

Don't go there.

Do you know a place that deserves more than it takes? Here is one big example of it. The "pub" snack bar is in one of the most beautiful spots on earth, but for the Caipirinha (Brazilian most famous drink) it serves only the essential. Sodas, chips, and a terrible service. Unfortunately.
