“Expensive but good”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

The atmosphere is great for couples, specially on the second floor where you seat on the floor.
The food is good, try the tuna aswell as the desserts.
It's better to do reservation because Zaza is most of the times full.

“Best restaurant in Rio!”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

The food is delicious and the environment is lovely. The best I have ever had in Rio. The staff is very kind and knowledgeable. Their Thai shrimp is to die for and the dessert are amazing too. My friends and I ended up ordering 2 each!

I strongly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

“Expensive but great”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Delicious food in a brilliant atmosphere - perfect for a date. Not cheap (but not ridiculous given the cost of eating out in Rio!) but the food and service more than make up for it - very refreshing to deal with English speaking staff in a city where the level of English spoken is poor.
Recommend sitting upstairs for a cool middle-eastern/Asian fusion feel.
